FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Veterans Health Administration Privacy Officer, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20420; telephone (704) 245–2492. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Public Law 101–508, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990, provides VA the authority to verify Veterans’ self-reported income to determine eligibility for medical benefits. VA’s Health Eligibility Center (HEC) in Atlanta, Georgia, originally established as the Income Verification Match Center, has authority under section 8051 to verify Veterans’ selfreported income with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Social Security Administration (SSA). The system number is changed from 89VA16 to 89VA10NB to reflect the current organizational alignment. The System Location, Access, and Safeguard sections have been amended to change the Austin Automation Center to what is now known as the Austin Information Technology Center. Routine use nineteen (19) has been added to state that disclosures to other Federal agencies may be made to assist such agencies in preventing and detecting possible fraud or abuse by individuals in their operations and programs. The section titled ‘‘Storage’’ is being amended to state that records are maintained at a secure off-site facility in Atlanta and Austin. In January 2013, VA implemented a new electronic data transmission process called Direct Connect, which is a secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnel to transmit and receive Veterans’ household income from IRS. VPN only affects the means in which the data is transmitted; it does not affect the storage of the data. ‘‘Safeguard’’ is being amended under number three (3) to include that the card has restricted access capability, which allows restriction of unauthorized personnel to secured areas. HEC Security Officer has been replaced with E:\FR\FM\19DEN1.SGM 19DEN1
