The primary functions of this system are to aid in the continuity of care of Guardsmen and Reservists and to assist in determining the medical and psychological suitability of persons for service or assignment. This distinct record set is necessary due to the unique nature of the ARNG and USAR which typically do not receive their routine medical care at an Active Component military medical treatment facility (MTF); therefore, Military Treatment Records (MTRs) are not retained at an MTF. This distinct record set is also necessary for recruiting since the ARNG does not maintain records on medical waiver evaluations. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 of 1974, as amended, these records contained therein may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows: Information may be disclosed to the Department of Veterans Affairs to adjudicate veterans’ claims and provide medical care to Army members.

Notice of application. AGENCY: ACTION: The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application) filed on July 18, 2014, by Alaska LNG Project LLC (Alaska LNG), requesting long-term multi-contract authorization to export 20 million metric tons per annum (mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from Alaskan sources in a volume equivalent to approximately 929 billion cubic feet per year (Bcf/yr) of natural gas, or approximately 2.55 Bcf per day (Bcf/d).1 Alaska LNG seeks authorization to export the LNG by vessel from a proposed Liquefaction Facility to be constructed in the Nikiski area of the Kenai Peninsula in south central Alaska (Project), to any country with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (nonFTA countries).2 Alaska LNG requests this authorization for a 30-year term to commence on the earlier of the date of first export or 12 years from the date the requested authorization is granted. Alaska LNG seeks to export the LNG on its own behalf and as agent for other parties who hold title to the LNG at the time of export. The Application was filed under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). DATES: Protests, motions to intervene or notices of intervention, as applicable, requests for additional procedures, and SUMMARY: 1 Alaska LNG states that the conversion factor of 46.467 Bcf per million metric ton is appropriate due to the relatively high heating content (Btu/cubic foot gas) and associated physical characteristics of LNG produced from Alaska sources. According to Alaska LNG, the conversion factors used in applications to export LNG from the lower 48 states of the United States are not applicable in this proceeding. 2 In the Application, Alaska LNG also requests authorization to export LNG to any nation that currently has, or in the future may enter into, a FTA requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas (FTA countries). DOE/FE will review Alaska LNG’s request for a FTA export authorization separately pursuant to NGA § 3(c), 15 U.S.C. 717b(c). Alaska LNG notes that the total volume requested in the Application (20 mtpa) represents LNG in an aggregate amount for export to both non-FTA and FTA countries. E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1

to include records of all forms of treatment at non-military medical 
treatment facilities.

Authority for maintenance of the system:
    10 U.S.C. 3013, Secretary of the Army; 10 U.S.C. 1071-1085, Medical 
and Dental Care; 50 U.S.C. Supplement IV, Appendix 454, as amended,

Purpose(s):
    This system is used by the Army National Guard (ARNG) and U.S. Army 
Reserves (USAR) Surgeons to support recruiting and medical readiness of 
personnel in the Reserve Components. The primary functions of this 
system are to aid in the continuity of care of Guardsmen and Reservists 
and to assist in determining the medical and psychological suitability 
of persons for service or assignment. This distinct record set is 
necessary due to the unique nature of the ARNG and USAR which typically 
do not receive their routine medical care at an Active Component 
military medical treatment facility (MTF); therefore, Military 
Treatment Records (MTRs) are not retained at an MTF. This distinct 
record set is also necessary for recruiting since the ARNG does not 
maintain records on medical waiver evaluations.

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 of 1974, as amended, these records contained 
therein may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:
    Information may be disclosed to the Department of Veterans Affairs 
to adjudicate veterans' claims and provide medical care to Army 
members.
    To the National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences, 
National Institutes of Health, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, and 
similar institutions for authorized health research in the interest of 
the Federal Government and the public. When not essential for 
longitudinal studies, patient identification data shall be eliminated 
from records used for research studies. Facilities/activities releasing 
such records shall maintain a list of all such research organizations 
and an accounting disclosure of records released thereto.
    To local and state government agencies for compliance with local 
laws and regulations governing control of communicable diseases, 
preventive medicine and safety, child abuse, and other public health 
and welfare programs.
    To third party payers per 10 U.S.C. 1095 as amended by Public Law 
99-272, Health care services incurred on behalf of covered 
beneficiaries: collection from third-party payers, for the purpose of 
collecting reasonable inpatient/outpatient hospital care costs incurred 
on behalf of retirees or dependents.
    To former DoD health care providers, who have been identified as 
being the subjects of potential reports to the National Practitioner 
Data Bank as a result of a payment having been made on their behalf by 
the U.S. Government in response to a malpractice claim or litigation, 
for purposes of providing the provider an opportunity, consistent with 
current requirements and Army Regulation 40-68, Clinical Quality 
Management, to provide any pertinent information and to comment on 
expert opinions, relating to the claim for which payment has been made.
    The DoD Blanket Routine Uses set forth at the beginning of the 
Army's systems of records notices may apply to this system.

    Note:  Records of identity, diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment 
of any client/patient, irrespective of whether or when he/she ceases 
to be a client/patient, maintained in connection with the 
performance of any alcohol or drug abuse prevention and treatment 
function conducted, regulated, or directly or indirectly assisted by 
any department or agency of the United States, shall, except as 
provided therein, be confidential and be disclosed only for the 
purposes and under the circumstances expressly authorized in 42 
U.S.C. 290dd-2. This statute takes precedence over the Privacy Act 
of 1974 in regard to accessibility of such records except to the 
individual to whom the record pertains. The DoD Blanket Routine Uses 
do not apply to these types of records.


    Note:  This system of records contains individually identifiable 
health information. The DoD Health Information Privacy Regulation 
(DoD 6025.18-R) issued pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability 
and Accountability Act of 1996, applies to most such health 
information. DoD 6025.18-R may place additional procedural 
requirements on the uses and disclosures of such information beyond 
those found in the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, or mentioned in 
this system of records notice.

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, 
and disposing of records in the system:
Storage:
    Paper records and electronic storage media.

Retrievability:
    The patient surname, SSN, or internal tracking identification 
number.

Safeguards:
    Records are maintained in a controlled facility. Physical entry is 
restricted by the use of locks, identification badges, key cards, 
guards, closed circuit TV, and is accessible only to authorized 
personnel. Access to records is limited to person(s) responsible for
