Download as PDF srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 50 / Wednesday, March 14, 2012 / Notices Act Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRAMA) requires that an agency’s strategic plan be updated for submission to the Congress and the President every four years. The NRC has developed an updated strategic plan for FY 2008–2013 to replace the agency’s existing strategic plan. The NRC published the draft strategic plan for FY 2012–2016 in the Federal Register for public comment on October 4, 2011 (76 FR 61402). NRC’s Senior Management reviewed and considered all comments before updating the strategic plan. A comment resolution matrix is under ADAMS Accession No ML12038A002 reflecting the disposition of the comments received by the NRC will be posted on the NRC’s Web site (www.nrc.gov), along with the updated strategic plan. During the review process, the NRC decided to issue the plan as an update to the existing FY 2008–2013 strategic plan that was published in February 2008. This was due to the fact that there have been no substantial changes in the agency’s mission and goals. However, to comply with the requirements of GPRAMA, the NRC is issuing an updated strategic plan. The updated strategic plan also takes into consideration the events that have occurred since the publication of the previous plan. The NRC’s updated FY 2008–2013 strategic plan describes the agency’s mission and strategic goals, which remain unchanged. The NRC’s priorities continue to be, as always, to ensure the adequate protection of public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment. The updated strategic plan reflects the agency’s Safety and Security goals, and their associated strategic outcomes. This focus on Safety and Security ensures that the NRC remains a strong, independent, stable, and effective regulator. The updated strategic plan also describes the agency’s Organizational Excellence strategies of Openness, Effectiveness, and Operational Excellence, which characterize the manner in which the agency intends to achieve its mission. The plan establishes the agency’s long-term strategic direction and outcomes, and provides a foundation to guide the NRC’s work and to allocate the NRC’s resources. Stakeholder feedback has been valuable in helping the Commission develop an updated plan that has the benefit of the many views in the regulated civilian nuclear industry.

follows:
    A. To the appropriate federal, state, local, or tribal agency

and necessary to the litigation, provided, however, that in each case

DISCLOSURE TO CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCIES:
    Not applicable.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING, RETAINING, 
AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM: STORAGE:
    Information in this system is stored electronically on a digital 
storage device and as hard copy files within locked containers. All 
record storage procedures are in accordance with current applicable 
regulations.

RETRIEVABILITY:
    Records are retrievable by database management systems software 
designed to retrieve data elements based upon role-based user access 
privileges. Records may be retrieved by personal identifiers such as, 
but not limited to, name, social security number, date of birth, or 
telephone number. Records may also be retrieved by non-personal 
information such as file number, entity/institution name, subject 
matter, agency involved, or other information.

SAFEGUARDS:
    The Board has minimized the risk of unauthorized access to the 
system by establishing a secure environment for exchanging electronic 
information. Physical access uses a defense in-depth approach 
restricting access at each layer closest to where the actual system 
resides. The entire complex is patrolled by security during non-
business hours. Physical access to the data system housed within the 
facility is controlled by a computerized badge-reading system. Multiple 
levels of security are maintained via dual factor authentication for 
access using biometrics. The computer system offers a high degree of 
resistance to tampering and circumvention. This system limits data 
access to Board and contract staff on a need-to-know basis, and 
controls individuals' ability to access and alter records within the 
system. All users of the system of records are given a unique user 
identification (ID) with personal identifiers, and those user IDs are 
consistent with the above referenced role-based access privileges to 
maintain proper security of law enforcement and any other sensitive 
information. All interactions between the system and the authorized 
individual users are recorded.

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL:
    Board personnel will review records on a periodic basis to 
determine whether they should be retained or modified. Further, the 
Board will retain and dispose of these records in accordance with Board 
Records Control Schedules approved by the National Archives and Records 
Administration.
