The goal of this project is to help ACF better understand how the variety of systems that assist refugees collaborate to promote common goals of selfsufficiency and employment, and how refugees’ experiences might differ depending on the structure of the state (or local) program arrangements. To achieve this goal, this study aims to document what states are doing to help refugees gain self-sufficiency; if and how states are integrating RCA, TANF, and associated services to better meet the needs of refugees; and what data is collected currently, or might be collected in the future, to better understand refugee resettlement services and suggest future areas for inquiry. The proposed data collection activities described in this notice will collect data about state policies and practices; how TANF, RCA, and associated services are provided; the respective roles of the various agencies and organizations in serving participants; how the agencies and organizations integrate services internally and/or collaborate with other organizations; refugee populations served; approaches to addressing the particular barriers refugees face; promising practices and strategies for assisting refugees; gaps in services; local labor market conditions; and experiences of refugees accessing services through these programs.

ACTION: In accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), HHS is proposing to establish a single, department-wide system of records to cover all HHS payroll records, to be numbered 09–90– 1402 and titled ‘‘HHS Payroll Records, HHS/OS.’’ The new system will replace two existing systems of records covering payroll records for civilian and commissioned corps personnel (09–40– 0006 ‘‘Public Health Service (PHS) Commissioned Corps Payroll Records, HHS/PSC/HRS’’ and 09–40–0010 ‘‘Pay, Leave and Attendance Records, HHS/ PSC/HRS’’). The existing systems were last altered effective September 2012 (see Notice published August 15, 2012 at 77 FR 48984, amending System of Records Notices (SORNs) published December 11, 1998 at 63 FR 68596, to revise the routine use covering disclosures to contractors and to add a new routine use covering disclosures in the course of responding to a data security breach). The existing systems will be considered deleted upon the effective date of the proposed new system. The SORN for the new system includes updates or changes to the System Location, Routine Uses, System Manager, and Record Access Procedure sections, as more fully explained in the ‘‘Supplementary Information’’ section of this Notice. SUMMARY: Effective upon publication, with the exception of the routine uses. The routine uses for the new system will be effective 30 days after publication of this Notice, unless comments are received that warrant a revision to this Notice. Written comments on the routine uses should be submitted within 30 days. Until the routine uses for the new system are effective, the routine DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 uses previously published for the existing systems will remain in effect. ADDRESSES: The public should address written comments to: CAPT Eric Shih, Office of the Surgeon General (OSG), Division of Systems Integration (DSI), Tower Oaks Building, Plaza Level 100, 1101 Wootton Parkway, Rockville, Maryland 20852. Comments will be available for public viewing at the same location.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information about civilian payroll records, contact: Charles Dietz, HHS/ Customer Care Services, 8455 Colesville Rd., Silver Spring, MD 20910, 301–504– 3219. For information about commissioned corps payroll records, contact: CAPT Eric Shih, Office of the Surgeon General (OSG), Division of Systems Integration (DSI), Tower Oaks Building, Plaza Level 100, 1101 Wootton Parkway, Rockville, Maryland 20852, 240–453–6085. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background on the New System of Records The proposed new system, 09–90– 1402 ‘‘HHS Payroll Records,’’ will combine two payroll systems of records which, until December 11, 1998, were covered in a single system of records notice (SORN), under the former number 09–90–0017 and title ‘‘Pay, Leave and Attendance Records.’’ The two existing systems (09–40–0006 and 09–40–0010) replaced system number 09–90–0017 in 1998 (see 63 FR 68596 at 68612 and 68615), following a 1995 reorganization that transferred payroll functions to the Program Support Center (PSC), an Operating Division that was created in 1995 to perform Human E:\FR\FM\13AUN1.SGM 13AUN1
