SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES I. Background The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Security is publishing an updated Privacy Act system of records notice to cover its collection, use and maintenance of records relating to its role in the collection and management of personally identifiable information for the purpose of issuing credentials (identification badges) to meet the requirements of the Homeland Security Presidential Directive–12 (HSPD–12) and in furtherance of the Office of Security’s mission for the Department. The Personal Identity Verification Management System (PIVMS) records will cover all DHS employees, contractors and their employees, consultants, and volunteers supporting DHS who require long-term access to Federal facilities and information systems, as well as Federal emergency response officials, foreign nationals on assignment, and other Federal employees detailed or temporarily assigned to DHS who work in Federally controlled facilities. The personally identifiable information to be collected will consist of data elements necessary to identify the individual and to VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:25 Jun 24, 2009 Jkt 217001 perform background or other investigations concerning the individual in order to determine their suitability for access to Federal facilities. The PIVMS will collect several data elements from the personal identity verification (PIV) card applicant, including: Date of birth, Social Security Number, organizational and employee affiliations, fingerprints, digital color photograph, digital signature and phone number(s), as well as additional verification information as determined necessary. The Office of Security designed this system to align closely with its current business practices and uses set forth in this system of records notice. DHS is publishing this updated notice to include additions to the categories of records and categories of individuals, as well as to include an additional routine use. The categories of records have been updated to include maiden name, mother’s maiden name, date of birth, clearance level, identifying physical information, financial history, entry on duty date, weapons bearer designation, and an expansion on what is included in an SF–85 or equivalent form. These records are either new records in the PIV system or were erroneously excluded from the previous SORN. The categories of individuals have expanded to include Federal emergency response officials; foreign nationals on assignment; and other Federal employees detailed or temporarily assigned to DHS, all of whom are in direct support of the DHS mission and who work in Federally controlled facilities or require access to Federal information technology systems. Lastly, DHS has added a routine use for responding to or investigating a data breach. Consistent with DHS’s information sharing mission, information stored in the PIVMS may be shared with other DHS components, as well as appropriate Federal, state, local, tribal, foreign or international government agencies. This sharing will only take place after DHS determines that the receiving component or agency has a need to know the information to carry out national security, law enforcement, immigration, intelligence, or other functions consistent with the routine uses set forth in this system of records notice. II. Privacy Act The Privacy Act embodies fair information principles in a statutory framework governing the means by which the United States Government collects, maintains, uses and disseminates personally identifiable PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information. The Privacy Act applies to information that is maintained in a ‘‘system of records.’’ A ‘‘system of records’’ is a group of any records under the control of an agency from which information is stored and retrieved by the name of the individual or by some identifying number such as property address, mailing address, or symbol, assigned to the individual. In the Privacy Act, an individual is defined to encompass United States citizens and lawful permanent residents. DHS extends administrative Privacy Act protections to all individuals where information is maintained on U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and visitors. Individuals may request their own records that are maintained in a system of records in the possession or under the control of DHS by complying with DHS Privacy Act regulations, 6 CFR 5.21. The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish in the Federal Register a description denoting the type and character of each system of records that the agency maintains, and the routine uses that are contained in each system in order to make agency record keeping practices transparent, to notify individuals regarding the uses to which personally identifiable information is put, and to assist individuals to more easily find such files within the agency. Below is the description of the Personal Identity Verification Management system of records. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DHS has provided a report of this new system of records to the Office of Management and Budget and to Congress. System of Records: DHS/All—026 SYSTEM NAME: DHS/ALL Personal Identity Verification Management System (PIVMS). SECURITY CLASSIFICATION: Sensitive but unclassified.

Privacy Act of 1974; DHS/All--026 Personal Identity Verification 
Management System Systems of Records

AGENCY: Privacy Office; DHS.

ACTION: Notice of Privacy Act system of records.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is giving notice 
that it proposes to update, rename, and reissue the record system DHS/
OS-2 Personal Identity Verification Management System (9/12/2006) to 
the DHS/All--026 Personal Identity Verification Management Record 
System. DHS is publishing this updated notice because the categories of 
individuals and categories of records have been updated, and the 
routine uses of this system of records notice have been updated to 
coincide with updates to DHS's Personal Identity Verification 
Management Record System. The system will support the administration of 
the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) program that 
directs the use of a common identification credential for both logical 
and physical access to Federally controlled facilities and information 
systems.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before July 27, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Security is 
publishing an updated Privacy Act system of records notice to cover its 
collection, use and maintenance of records relating to its role in the 
collection and management of personally identifiable information for 
the purpose of issuing credentials (identification badges) to meet the 
requirements of the Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-
12) and in furtherance of the Office of Security's mission for the 
Department.
    The Personal Identity Verification Management System (PIVMS) 
records will cover all DHS employees, contractors and their employees, 
consultants, and volunteers supporting DHS who require long-term access 
to Federal facilities and information systems, as well as Federal 
emergency response officials, foreign nationals on assignment, and 
other Federal employees detailed or temporarily assigned to DHS who 
work in Federally controlled facilities. The personally identifiable 
information to be collected will consist of data elements necessary to 
identify the individual and to perform background or other 
investigations concerning the individual in order to determine their 
suitability for access to Federal facilities. The PIVMS will collect 
several data elements from the personal identity verification (PIV) 
card applicant, including: Date of birth, Social Security Number, 
organizational and employee affiliations, fingerprints, digital color 
photograph, digital signature and phone number(s), as well as 
additional verification information as determined necessary. The Office 
of Security designed this system to align closely with its current 
business practices and uses set forth in this system of records notice.
    DHS is publishing this updated notice to include additions to the 
categories of records and categories of individuals, as well as to 
include an additional routine use. The categories of records have been 
updated to include maiden name, mother's maiden name, date of birth, 
clearance level, identifying physical information, financial history, 
entry on duty date, weapons bearer designation, and an expansion on 
what is included in an SF-85 or equivalent form. These records are 
either new records in the PIV system or were erroneously excluded from 
the previous SORN.
    The categories of individuals have expanded to include Federal 
emergency response officials; foreign nationals on assignment; and 
other Federal employees detailed or temporarily assigned to DHS, all of 
whom are in direct support of the DHS mission and who work in Federally 
controlled facilities or require access to Federal information 
technology systems. Lastly, DHS has added a routine use for responding 
to or investigating a data breach.
    Consistent with DHS's information sharing mission, information 
stored in the PIVMS may be shared with other DHS components, as well as 
appropriate Federal, state, local, tribal, foreign or international 
government agencies. This sharing will only take place after DHS 
determines that the receiving component or agency has a need to know 
the information to carry out national security, law enforcement, 
immigration, intelligence, or other functions consistent with the 
routine uses set forth in this system of records notice.

II. Privacy Act

    The Privacy Act embodies fair information principles in a statutory 
framework governing the means by which the United States Government 
collects, maintains, uses and disseminates personally identifiable 
information. The Privacy Act applies to information that is maintained 
in a ``system of records.'' A ``system of records'' is a group of any 
records under the control of an agency from which information is stored 
and retrieved by the name of the individual or by some identifying 
number such as property address, mailing address, or symbol, assigned 
to the individual. In the Privacy Act, an individual is defined to 
encompass United States citizens and lawful permanent residents. DHS 
extends administrative Privacy Act protections to all individuals where 
information is maintained on U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, 
and visitors. Individuals may request their own records that are 
maintained in a system of records in the possession or under the 
control of DHS by complying with DHS Privacy Act regulations, 6 CFR 
5.21.
    The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish in the Federal 
Register a description denoting the type and character of each system 
of records that the agency maintains, and the routine uses that are 
contained in each system in order to make agency record keeping 
practices transparent, to notify individuals regarding the uses to 
which personally identifiable information is put, and to assist 
individuals to more easily find such files within the agency. Below is 
the description of the Personal Identity Verification Management system 
of records.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DHS has provided a report of 
this new system of records to the Office of Management and Budget and 
to Congress.

     Verify that all persons entering Federal facilities, using 
Federal information resources, are authorized to do so; and
     Track and control PIV cards issued to persons entering and 
exiting the DHS facilities or using DHS systems.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories 
of users and the purposes of such uses:
    In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 
552a(b) of the Privacy Act, all or a portion of the records or 
information contained in this system may be disclosed outside DHS as a 
routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3). Disclosures may be made 
to:
    A. To the Department of Justice (DOJ) or other Federal agency 
conducting litigation or in proceedings before any court, adjudicative 
or administrative body, when:
    1. DHS or any component thereof;
    2. Any employee of DHS in his/her official capacity;
    3. Any employee of DHS in his/her individual capacity where DOJ or 
DHS has agreed to represent the employee; or
    4. The United States or any agency thereof, is a party to the 
litigation or has an interest in such litigation, and DHS determines 
that the records are both relevant and necessary to the litigation and 
the use of such records is compatible with the purpose for which DHS 
collected the records.
    B. To a congressional office from the record of an individual in 
response to an inquiry from that congressional office made at the 
request of the individual to whom the record pertains.
    C. To the National Archives and Records Administration or other 
Federal government agencies pursuant to records management inspections 
being conducted under the authority of 44 U.S.C. 2904 and 2906.
    D. To an agency, organization, or individual for the purpose of 
performing audit or oversight operations as authorized by law, but only 
such information as is necessary and relevant to such audit or 
oversight function.
    E. To appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when:
    1. DHS suspects or has confirmed that the security or 
confidentiality of information in the system of records has been 
compromised;
    2. The Department has determined that as a result of the suspected 
or confirmed compromise there is a risk of harm to economic or property 
interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security or 
integrity of this system or other systems or programs (whether 
maintained by DHS or another agency or entity) that rely upon the 
compromised information; and
    3. The disclosure made to such agencies, entities, and persons is 
reasonably necessary to assist in connection with DHS's efforts to 
respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, 
or remedy such harm.
    F. To contractors and their agents, grantees, experts, consultants, 
and others performing or working on a contract, service, grant, 
cooperative agreement, or other assignment for DHS, when necessary to 
accomplish an agency function related to this system of records. 
Individuals provided information under this routine use are subject to 
the same Privacy Act requirements and limitations on disclosure as are 
applicable to DHS officers and employees.
    G. To an appropriate Federal, State, tribal, local, international, 
or foreign law enforcement agency or other appropriate authority 
charged with investigating or prosecuting a violation or enforcing or 
implementing a law, rule, regulation, or order, where a record, either 
on its face or in conjunction with other information, indicates a 
violation or potential violation of law, which includes criminal, 
civil, or regulatory violations and such disclosure is proper and 
consistent with the official duties of the person making the 
disclosure.
    H. To the Department of Justice (DOJ) when:
    1. The agency or any component thereof;
    2. Any employee of the agency in his or her official capacity;
    3. Any employee of the agency in his or her individual capacity 
where agency or the Department of Justice has agreed to represent the 
employee; or
    4. The United States Government is a party to litigation or has an 
interest in such litigation, and by careful review, the agency 
determines that the records are both relevant and necessary to the

[[Page 30304]]

litigation and the use of such records by DOJ is therefore deemed by 
the agency to be for a purpose compatible with the purpose for which 
the agency collected the records.
    I. To a court or adjudicative body in a proceeding when: (a) The 
agency or any component thereof; (b) any employee of the agency in his 
or her official capacity; (c) any employee of the agency in his or her 
individual capacity where agency or the Department of Justice has 
agreed to represent the employee; or (d) the United States Government 
is a party to litigation or has an interest in such litigation, and by 
careful review, the agency determines that the records are both 
relevant and necessary to the litigation and the use of such records is 
therefore deemed by the agency to be for a purpose that is compatible 
with the purpose for which the agency collected the records.
    J. Except as noted on Forms SF 85, 85-P, and 86, when a record on 
its face, or in conjunction with other records, indicates a violation 
or potential violation of law, whether civil, criminal, or regulatory 
in nature, and whether arising by general statute or particular program 
statute, or by regulation, rule, or order issued pursuant thereto, 
disclosure may be made to the appropriate public authority, whether 
Federal, foreign, State, local, or tribal, or otherwise, responsible 
for enforcing, investigating or prosecuting such violation or charged 
with enforcing or implementing the statute, or rule, regulation, or 
order issued pursuant thereto, if the information disclosed is relevant 
to any enforcement, regulatory, investigative or prosecutorial 
responsibility of the receiving entity.
    K. To a Federal, State, local, foreign, or tribal or other public 
authority the fact that this system of records contains information 
relevant to the retention of an employee, the retention of a security 
clearance, the letting of a contract, or the issuance or retention of a 
license, grant, or other benefit. The other agency or licensing 
organization may then make a request supported by the written consent 
of the individual for the entire record if it so chooses. No disclosure 
will be made unless the information has been determined to be 
sufficiently reliable to support a referral to another office within 
the agency or to another Federal agency for criminal, civil, 
administrative personnel or regulatory action.
    L. To the Office of Management and Budget when necessary to the 
review of private relief legislation pursuant to OMB Circular No. A-19.
    M. To a Federal, State, or local agency, or other appropriate 
entities or individuals, or through established liaison channels to 
selected foreign governments, in order to enable an intelligence agency 
to carry out its responsibilities under the National Security Act of 
1947, as amended, the CIA Act of 1949, as amended, Executive Order 
12333 or any successor order, applicable national security directives, 
or classified implementing procedures approved by the Attorney General 
and promulgated pursuant to such statutes, orders or directives.
    N. To notify another Federal agency when, or verify whether, a PIV 
card is no longer valid.
    O. To the news media and the public, with the approval of the Chief 
Privacy Officer in consultation with counsel, when there exists a 
legitimate public interest in the disclosure of the information or when 
disclosure is necessary to preserve confidence in the integrity of DHS 
or is necessary to demonstrate the accountability of DHS's officers, 
employees, or individuals covered by the system, except to the extent 
it is determined that release of the specific information in the 
context of a particular case would constitute an unwarranted invasion 
of personal privacy.
