AGENCY: Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD.

ACTION: Notice to alter a system of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-130, notice is hereby

alter a system of records, DMDC 02 DoD, entitled ``Defense Enrollment 
Eligibility Reporting Systems (DEERS)'' last published at 80 FR 68304, 
November 4, 2015.
    The system of records exists to: Record the issuance of Department

identify DoD affiliated personnel; grant physical and logical access to 
DoD facilities; determine eligibility for DoD entitlements and 
privileges; support DoD health care management programs; assess 
manpower, support personnel and readiness functions; and provide 
appropriate contact information of DoD personnel and beneficiaries for 
the purpose of conducting surveys authorized by the DoD.

    This alteration adds a routine use enabling information from the 
system of records to be disclosed to national consumer reporting 
agencies to ensure eligible Service members are afforded protections 
under the Military Lending Act (MLA) in accordance with 32 CFR 232, 
Limitations on Terms of Consumer Credit Extended to Service Members and 
Dependents. In addition, the following Department of Defense (DoD) 
blanket routine have been applied to this system: Law Enforcement, 
Disclosure When Requesting Information, Congressional Inquiries 
Disclosure, Disclosure to the Office of Personnel Management, 
Disclosure of information to the National Archives and Records 
Administration, and Data Breach Remediation Purposes. This alteration 
also reflects administrative changes to the categories of individuals, 
authorities, and storage sections of the systems of the system of 
records notice.

verifying an individual's identity.
    4. To the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA):
    a. To provide uniformed service personnel (pay, wounded, ill, and
