SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: General Information: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has created a Privacy Act system of records for the External Compliance Program Discrimination Complaint Files system. The External Compliance Program Discrimination Complaint Files system has been developed to provide the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) with the ability to more VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:00 Oct 23, 2014 Jkt 235001 effectively manage its program information needs and to integrate the office’s various business processes. The External Compliance Program Discrimination Complaint Files system supports the collection of compliancerelated data and other information needed by OCR to complete compliance activities and issue determinations. The External Compliance Program Discrimination Complaint Files system has been renamed the Title VI External Compliance Case Tracking System. The system of records is also being amended to more accurately describe the scope of the system of records and to reflect current storage, retrievability, safeguards and other changes that have occurred since the original system of records notice was published in January 2006. In addition, there have been changes to routine uses and the addresses of system locations and system managers. Access to the records in this system is limited to OCR employees whose official duties require using the information. Specific access is based on need and is determined by the user’s role in the organization. Access is managed through the use of electronic control lists which regulate the ability to read, change and delete information in the system. System users have read-only access to designated information in the system with the ability to only modify their own submissions and those of others within their region or group. Access to confidential information is limited. The system maintains an audit trail of all actions taken in the database. All electronic data are stored on servers maintained in locked facilities with computerized access control. The server facility has appropriate environmental security controls, including measures to mitigate damage to automated information system resources caused by fire, electricity, water and inadequate climate controls. Access to servers, individual computers and databases requires a user log-on with a password. The same access controls apply to remote users. System administrators have appropriate security clearances. Printed materials are filed in secure cabinets in secure federal facilities with access based on need, as described above, for the automated component of the system.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    General Information:
    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has created a 
Privacy Act system of records for the External Compliance Program 
Discrimination Complaint Files system. The External Compliance Program 
Discrimination Complaint Files system has been developed to provide the 
Office of Civil Rights (OCR) with the ability to more effectively 
manage its program information needs and to integrate the office's 
various business processes. The External Compliance Program 
Discrimination Complaint Files system supports the collection of 
compliance-related data and other information needed by OCR to complete 
compliance activities and issue determinations. The External Compliance 
Program Discrimination Complaint Files system has been renamed the 
Title VI External Compliance Case Tracking System. The system of 
records is also being amended to more accurately describe the scope of 
the system of records and to reflect current storage, retrievability, 
safeguards and other changes that have occurred since the original 
system of records notice was published in January 2006. In addition, 
there have been changes to routine uses and the addresses of system 
locations and system managers.
    Access to the records in this system is limited to OCR employees 
whose official duties require using the information. Specific access is 
based on need and is determined by the user's role in the organization. 
Access is managed through the use of electronic control lists which 
regulate the ability to read, change and delete information in the 
system. System users have read-only access to designated information in 
the system with the ability to only modify their own submissions and 
those of others within their region or group. Access to confidential 
information is limited. The system maintains an audit trail of all

servers maintained in locked facilities with computerized access 
control. The server facility has appropriate environmental security 
controls, including measures to mitigate damage to automated 
information system resources caused by fire, electricity, water and 
inadequate climate controls. Access to servers, individual computers 
and databases requires a user log-on with a password. The same access 
controls apply to remote users. System administrators have appropriate 
security clearances. Printed materials are filed in secure cabinets in 
secure federal facilities with access based on need, as described 
above, for the automated component of the system.
