ACTION: Notice of systems of records.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 
1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Bureau of the Public Debt, 
Treasury, is publishing its inventory of Privacy Act systems of 
records.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 
U.S.C.

[[Page 51129]]

552a) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Circular No. A-
130, the Bureau of the Public Debt (BPD) has completed a review of its 
Privacy Act systems of records notices to identify changes that will 
more accurately describe these records. Such changes throughout the 
document are editorial in nature and consist principally of changes to 
system locations and system manager addresses, and revisions to 
organizational titles.
    In addition, BPD has deleted a routine use from BPD.001--Human 
Resources and Administrative Records, under which over-the-phone 
verification of certain employment information had been made for the 
benefit of BPD employees. The bureau has changed the process to require 
a written request from the employee as a best practice and to better 
protect BPD employees.
    This publication also incorporates the alterations made to 
BPD.004--Controlled Access Security System, as published on July 17, 
2009, at 74 FR 34867. The systems of records were last published in 
their entirety on July 23, 2008, at 73 FR 42904-42921.

    This notice covers all systems of records adopted by the Bureau of 
the Public Debt up to April 1, 2011. The systems notices are reprinted 
in their entirety following the Table of Contents.

disclosures may be made from this system of records to ``consumer 
reporting agencies'' as defined in 31 U.S.C. 3701(a)(3). The purpose of

necessary to establish the identity of the individual responsible for 
the claim, including name, address, and taxpayer identification number; 
the amount, status, and history of the claim; and the agency or program

Policies and Practices for Storing, Retrieving, Accessing, Retaining, 
and Disposing of Records in the System:
Storage:
    Records in this system are stored on paper, microform, or in 
electronic media.

Retrievability:
    Information can be retrieved alphabetically by name, address, and 
period of time the security was issued, by bond serial numbers, other 
assigned identifier, or, in some cases, numerically by social security 
number. In the case of securities, except Series G savings bonds, 
registered in more than one name, information relating to those 
securities can be retrieved only by the names, or, in some cases, the 
social security number of the registrants, primarily the registered 
owners or first-named co-owners. In the case of gift bonds inscribed 
with the social security number of the purchaser, bonds are retrieved 
under that number, or by bond serial number.

Safeguards:
    Information is contained in secure buildings or in areas which are

[[Page 51133]]

occupied either by officers and responsible employees of the Bureau of 
the Public Debt who are subject to personnel screening procedures and 
to the Treasury Department Code of Conduct or by agents of the Bureau 
of the Public Debt who are required to maintain proper control over 
records while in their custody. Additionally, since in most cases, 
numerous steps are involved in the retrieval process, unauthorized 
persons would be unable to retrieve information in meaningful form. 
Information stored in electronic media is safeguarded by automatic data 
processing security procedures in addition to physical security 
measures. Additionally, for those categories of records stored in 
computers with online terminal access, the information cannot be 
accessed without proper passwords and preauthorized functional 
capability.

Retention and Disposal:
    Records of holdings, forms, documents, and other legal papers which 
constitute the basis for transactions subsequent to original issue are 
maintained for such time as is necessary to protect the legal rights 
and interests of the United States Government and the persons affected, 
or otherwise until they are no longer historically significant. Other 
records are disposed of at varying intervals in accordance with records 
retention schedules reviewed and approved by the National Archives and 
Records Administration (NARA). Paper and microform records ready for 
disposal are destroyed by shredding or maceration. Records in 
electronic media are electronically erased using accepted techniques.

System Manager and Address:
    Assistant Commissioner, Office of Retail Securities, Bureau of the 
Public Debt, 200 Third Street, Parkersburg, WV 26106-5312.

Notification Procedure:
    Individuals may submit their requests for determination of whether 
the system contains records about them or for access to records as 
provided under ``Records Access Procedures.'' Requests must be made in

possible.

Record Access Procedures:
    (1) A request for access to records must be in writing, signed by 
the individual concerned, identify the system of records, and clearly

right to require additional verification of an individual's identity.
    (2) The request must state whether the requester wishes to be 
notified that the record exists or desires to inspect or obtain a copy

CFR 1.26(d)(2)(ii).
    (3) Requests by individuals about securities they own:

Treasury Retail Securities Site cannot access the particular record, 
the individual will be advised to contact Retail Securities at the 
Bureau of the Public Debt. Individuals must provide sufficient 
information, including their address and social security number, to 
identify themselves as owner or co-owner of the securities. They should 
provide the complete bond serial numbers, including alphabetic prefixes

of registration, and, except for Series G Savings Bonds registered in 
co-ownership form, the names and social security numbers of all persons 
named in the registration should be provided. If a Case Identification 
Number is known, that should be provided.

must contain sufficient information to identify the securities; this 
would include type or series of securities, approximate date of issue, 
serial number, and form of registration. These requests will be honored 
only if the identity and right of the requester to the information have 
been established. Send requests to the addresses shown in (3)(a) or

registered in beneficiary form must be accompanied by the name and 
social security number of the owner and by proof of death of the 
registered owner.
    (b) Requests for records of holdings or other information 
concerning a deceased or incapacitated individual must be accompanied

necessary to establish the identity of the individual responsible for 
the claim, including name, address, and taxpayer identification number; 
the amount, status, and history of the claim; and the agency or program 
under which the claim arose.

Policies and Practices for Storing, Retrieving, Accessing, Retaining, 
and Disposing of Records in the System:
Storage:
    Records in this system are stored on paper, microform, or in 
electronic media.

Retrievability:
    Information can be retrieved by social security account number, 
other assigned identifier, or, in some cases, alphabetically by name or 
numerically by security serial number. In the case of securities 
registered in more than one name, information relating to those 
securities generally can be retrieved only by social security number or 
by the name of the first-named owner.

Safeguards:
    Information is contained in secure buildings, Federal Records 
Centers, or in areas which are occupied either by officers and 
responsible employees of the Department who are subject to personnel 
screening procedures and to the Executive Branch and Treasury 
Department Standards of Conduct or by agents of the Department who are 
required by the Department to maintain proper control over records 
while in their custody. Additionally, since in most cases, numerous 
steps are involved in the retrieval process, unauthorized persons would 
be unable to retrieve information in a meaningful form. Information 
stored in electronic media is safeguarded by automatic data processing 
security procedures in addition to physical security measures. 
Additionally, for those categories of records stored in computers with 
terminal access, the information cannot be obtained or modified without 
proper passwords and preauthorized functional capability.

Retention and Disposal:
    Records of holdings, forms, documents, and other legal papers which 
constitute the basis for transactions subsequent to original issue are 
maintained for such time as is necessary to protect the legal rights 
and interests of the U.S. Government and the persons affected, or 
otherwise until they are no longer historically significant. Other 
records are disposed of at varying intervals in accordance with records 
retention schedules reviewed and approved by the National Archives and 
Records Administration (NARA). Paper and microform records ready for 
disposal are destroyed by shredding or maceration. Records in 
electronic media are electronically erased using accepted techniques.

identification without a photograph, but showing a name and signature. 
If the individual is seeking access by mail, identity may be

identifier such as a photocopy of an official document bearing the 
individual's signature. The Bureau of the Public Debt reserves the 
right to require additional verification of an individual's identity.
    (2) The request must state whether the requester wishes to be 
notified that the record exists or desires to inspect or obtain a copy 
of the record. If a copy of the record is desired, the requester must 
agree to pay the fees for copying the documents in accordance with 31 
FR 1.26(d)(2)(ii).

the securities.
    (4) Requests by individuals who are representatives of owners or 
their estates require appropriate authority papers. Write to: Office of
