where required medical examination and/or actual marrow or blood 
hematopoietic progenitor cell procurement is performed.

    Note: This system of records contains individually identifiable 
health information. DoD 6025.18-R, ``DoD Health Information Privacy 
Regulation'' issued pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and 
Accountability Act of 1996, applies to most such health information. 
DoD 6025.18-R may place additional procedural requirements on the 
uses and disclosures of such information beyond those found in the 
Privacy Act of 1974 or mentioned in this system of records notice.''

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving/accessing, retaining, 
and disposing of records in the system:
Storage:
    Delete entry and replace with ``Records are maintained on paper in 
file folders and electronic storage media.''

Retrievability:
    Delete entry and replace with ``By donor's name, Social Security 
Number (SSN) or Donor Identification Number, human leukocyte antigen 
type, date of birth, sex and racial/ethnic group.''

Safeguards:
    Delete entry and replace with ``Records are accessed by authorized 
personnel with an official need-to-know who have been trained for 
handling personally identifiable information. Hard copy records are 
maintained in locked cabinets in restricted access areas. Computer 
files are accessed on a password-protected stand-alone microcomputer 
system that includes a complete array of certified intrusion protection 
with computers housed in restricted areas with mechanical locks for 
additional protection. Computer files containing personal identifiers 
are maintained in a database server on a network using strict firewall 
rules for access and data files are maintained on a database encoded 
format that cannot be read without access through the secure database. 
Backup data containing personal identifiers are maintained in secure 
locked cabinets and the data is encrypted. Medical information required 
to facilitate the donation process is maintained on a local system 
developed as part of the National Marrow Donor Program. The database 
requires a second and third level of password protection for access by 
DoD Marrow Donor Program personnel with a need-to-know.
    Specific permitted information (without personal identifiers) is 
transmitted to and received from the national coordinating center of 
the National Marrow Donor Program in a secure system to facilitate 
selection of donors for transplantation and provide

information about the progress of the donation process.''

Retention and disposal:
    Delete entry and replace with ``Pending. Until National Archives 
and Records Administration approves the retention and disposition 
schedule, treat records as permanent.''

Notification Procedure:
    Delete entry and replace with ``Individuals seeking to determine 
whether information about themselves is contained in this system should 
address written inquiries to the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health 
Affairs), Office of Professional Affairs and Quality Assurance, Room 
3D366, 1200 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-1200, where a log of 
these requests will be maintained.
    Individuals may also determine if they are included by contacting 
the Donor Center of the C.W. Bill Young Marrow Donor Recruitment and 
Research Program, the DoD Bone Marrow Donor Program, 11333 Woodglen 
Drive, Rockville, MD 20852-3071.
    The request should contain the individual's full name and Social 
Security Number (SSN).''

Record Access Procedures:
    Delete entry and replace with ``Individuals seeking access to 
information about themselves contained in this system should address 
written inquiries to the OSD/JS FOIA Requester Service Center, 1155 
Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-1155.
    The request should contain the individual's full name, Social 
Security number (SSN), and, if applicable, the name of the medical

internet. This remote access is limited to users with the appropriate 
system accounts and permission levels. A list of these secondary 
locations is available from the System Manager.

Categories of Individuals Covered by the System:
    Department of Defense military and civilian personnel and their 
dependents that have volunteered for and been accepted as potential 
bone marrow donors.

Categories of Records in the System:
    Donor registration and consent forms (or a notation in writing if 
the consent was obtained telephonically) including consents for testing 
and to donate a blood sample or buccal swab for HLA (human leukocyte 
antigen) typing and other genetic tests needed for matching a potential 
donor and patient that may affect transplant outcome; a consent to 
donate platelets; a consent to donate hematopoietic progenitor cells 
(HPC) from the bone marrow or from blood, if compatible with a patient; 
a consent to undergo anesthesia if selected to donate marrow or a 
consent to receive filgrastim followed by phereses for blood progenitor 
cells or consent for blood donation or phereses to collect donor blood 
lymphocytes for donor lymphocyte infusion as part of the transplant; 
report of physical examination of the donor to include complete medical 
history and the results of laboratory and other tests (X-ray, 
electrocardiogram, virology, etc.) and examining physician's report to 
the donor center; information pertinent to the collection process 
including post hospitalization follow-up; donor's written consent for 
further donations and insurance information offered through the 
National Marrow Donor Program. Donors may be contacted for additional 
approved research programs and if the donor agrees additional consents 
will be obtained. Data items include: Name, Social Security Number 
(SSN), a bar-coded Donor Identification Number (DIN) and genetic 
matching types (HLA) type and additional transplant matching type; 
donor's address, place of work, home and work telephone numbers; names,

Purpose(s):
    To tissue type as many donors as possible for inclusion in the 
National Registry of marrow donors. This will offer patients requiring 
bone marrow or blood hematopoietic progenitor cell (PBSC) transplants 
access to as many potential donors as possible for the purpose of 
obtaining compatible match.
    To list registered donors with the National Coordinating Center for 
the purpose of obtaining a marrow match. Information released will 
consist of DIN, donor's race, date of birth and sex, genetic matching 
types (HLA), only.

clinical transplant. Information released will consist of name, 
address, Social Security Number and date of birth. Name and address 
only for the purpose of direct informational mailing (in such a way 
that the individual is not linked to his or her donor identification 
number or HLA-type).
