SUMMARY: This system of records was established for the purpose of serving as a basis for taking civil, criminal, and administrative actions, including the issuance of subpoenas, security clearances, suitability determinations, suspension and debarment recommendations and similar authorized activities. DATES: Effective March 6, 2009. E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 22 / Wednesday, February 4, 2009 / Notices FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Call or e-mail the GSA Privacy Act Officer: telephone 202–208–1317; e-mail gsa.privacyact@gsa.gov. GSA Privacy Act Officer (CIB), General Services Administration, 1800 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20405. ADDRESSES: The current routine use allows disclosure for educational or informational purposes provided the record does not identify a specific individual. The proposed revision would allow public disclosure of information that identifies individuals. The proposed revised routine use is compatible with the purpose of taking criminal, civil, and administrative actions because the provision to the media or members of the public of information on events in an investigation or an administrative or judicial proceeding helps to preserve confidence in the integrity of the investigative process and to demonstrate the accountability of agency and Office of Inspector General officers and employees, and of those individuals doing business with the United States. It also will enhance the deterrence of similar crimes against the United States. The proposed revised routine use will only affect the privacy of individuals insofar as they are involved in an investigation or administrative or judicial proceeding. With respect to such individuals, specific information will not be released if such release would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. The proposed revised routine use does not involve any new information collection requests. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: January 27, 2009. James L.

Privacy Act of 1974; Notice of Updated Systems of Records

AGENCY: General Services Administration

ACTION:  Notice; publication of one revised GSA system of records 
notices that includes a new routine use.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY:  This system of records was established for the purpose of 
serving as a basis for taking civil, criminal, and administrative 
actions, including the issuance of subpoenas, security clearances, 
suitability determinations, suspension and debarment recommendations 
and similar authorized activities.

DATES:  Effective March 6, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:  Call or e-mail the GSA Privacy Act 
Officer: telephone 202-208-1317; e-mail gsa.privacyact@gsa.gov.

ADDRESSES:  GSA Privacy Act Officer (CIB), General Services 
Administration, 1800 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20405.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The current routine use allows disclosure 
for educational or informational purposes provided the record does not 
identify a specific individual. The proposed revision would allow 
public disclosure of information that identifies individuals.
    The proposed revised routine use is compatible with the purpose of 
taking criminal, civil, and administrative actions because the 
provision to the media or members of the public of information on 
events in an investigation or an administrative or judicial proceeding 
helps to preserve confidence in the integrity of the investigative 
process and to demonstrate the accountability of agency and Office of 
Inspector General officers and employees, and of those individuals 
doing business with the United States. It also will enhance the 
deterrence of similar crimes against the United States.
    The proposed revised routine use will only affect the privacy of 
individuals insofar as they are involved in an investigation or 
administrative or judicial proceeding. With respect to such 
individuals, specific information will not be released if such release 
would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
    The proposed revised routine use does not involve any new 
information collection requests.

Human Capital Officer.
