ACTION: Notice of Amendment, Privacy Act System of Records; COMMERCE/ CENSUS–8, Statistical Administrative Records System. AGENCY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, Title 5 United States Code (U.S.C.) 552a(e)(4) and (11); and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–130, Appendix I, ‘‘Federal Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals’’, the Department of Commerce is issuing an amendment to a notice of intent to amend the system of records under COMMERCE/CENSUS–8, Statistical Administrative Records System published previously on March 25, 2009. This amendment would change certain provisions concerning the purpose of the system of records, categories of individuals and records covered by the system, retrievability, and safeguards for the records in the system; in addition to minor administrative updates. Accordingly, the COMMERCE/CENSUS–8, Statistical Administrative Records System notice published in the Federal Register on January 20, 2000 (65 FR 3202), is amended as below. We invite public SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66061 comment on the system amendment announced in this publication. DATES: Comment Date: To be considered, written comments on the proposed amended system must be submitted on or before November 26, 2010. Effective Date: Unless comments are received, the amended system of records will become effective as proposed on the date of publication of a subsequent notice in the Federal Register. ADDRESSES: Please address comments to: Chief Privacy Officer, Privacy Office, Room HQ—8H168, U.S. Census Bureau, Washington, DC 20233–3700. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 25, 2009, the Department of Commerce published and requested comments on a proposed Privacy Act System of Records notice entitled COMMERCE/CENSUS–8, Statistical Administrative Records System (74 FR 12834). No comments were received by Commerce, but that notice was not published as final because a careful review of the proposed changes revealed that two technical changes were needed and two other program-related changes were needed because of work associated with the Statistical Administrative System (StARS). The first proposed technical change is the insertion of a reference to 13 U.S.C. 8(b) after ‘‘* * * in accordance with Title 13, United States Codes (U.S.C.) * * *’’ under the Supplementary Information heading to more thoroughly reflect the authorities under which the Census Bureau collects data including our reimbursable work for other agencies and the authority for the release of summary tabulations. The second proposed change is the insertion of the phrase ‘‘* * * in accordance with the Department’s rules which appear in 15 CFR part 4 subpart B and * * *’’ after ‘‘This exemption is made’’ under the section entitled ‘‘Exemptions Claimed for System.’’ This change is being made to more accurately convey that the Census Bureau, as part of the Department of Commerce, is subject to Commerce Department rules. The first of the two changes made to program-related provisions of the March 25, 2009 notice is to language that attempted to clearly describe the strict limitations to be placed on access to records containing direct identifiers by sworn Census Bureau staff. In that notice, the Census Bureau proposed a change to the access limitation provision from ‘‘a limited number’’ to ‘‘fewer than ten’’ under the heading ‘‘Categories of Records in the System; Retrievability’’. This change was proposed to describe the proposed E:\FR\FM\27OCN1.SGM 27OCN1
