FCC Form 609–T is used by Designated Entities (DEs) to request prior Commission approval pursuant to Section 1.2114 of the Commission’s rules for any reportable eligibility event. The data collected on the form is used by the FCC to determine whether the public interest would be served by the approval of the reportable eligibility event. FCC Form 611–T is used by DE licensees to file an annual report, pursuant to Section 1.2110(n) of the Commission’s rules, related to eligibility for designated entity benefits. The information collected will be used to ensure that only legitimate small businesses reap the benefits of the Commission’s designated entity program. Further, this information will assist the Commission in preventing companies from circumventing the objectives of the designated entity eligibility rules by allowing us to review: (1) The FCC 609–T applications seeking approval for ‘‘reportable eligibility events’’ and (2) the FCC Form 611–T annual reports to ensure that licensees receiving designated entity benefits are in compliance with the Commission’s policies and rules.

FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION


Privacy Act System of Records

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission

ACTION: Notice of amendment to system of records; three new routine 
uses.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission or 
Agency) has amended an existing system of records, FCC/OMD-17, Freedom 
of Information Act (FOIA) and Privacy Act Requests, subject to the 
Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended. This action is 
necessary to meet the requirements of the Privacy Act to publish in the 
Federal Register notice of the existence and character of records 
maintained by the agency (5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)). The FCC's Office of the 
Managing Director (OMD) will use FOIAonline, https://foiaonline.regulations.gov/foia/action/public/home, an online portal 
that permits the public to file initial Freedom of Information Act 
(FOIA) requests and appeals. FOIAonline also permits the public to 
search various fields of data (as designated by the FCC) concerning 
FOIA requests, appeals, and responsive records. The FCC began 
participating in FOIAonline in February 2015. The system has been 
operational since then without incident.

DATES: Written comments are due on or before September 26, 2016. This 
action will become effective on October 5, 2016 unless comments are 
received that require a contrary determination.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to Leslie F. Smith, Privacy Manager, 
Information Technology (IT), Room 1-C216, Federal Communications 
Commission, 445 12th Street SW., Washington, DC 20554, or to 
Leslie.Smith@fcc.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Leslie F. Smith, (202) 418-0217, or 
Leslie.Smith@fcc.gov, and to obtain a copy of the Narrative Statement, 
which includes details of the proposed alterations to this system of 
records.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FCC previously gave notice of this 
system of records, FCC/OMD-17, by publication in the Federal Register 
on April 5, 2006 (65 FR 17234, 17261). This notice serves to update and 
amend FCC/OMD-17, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Privacy Act 
Requests, as a result of an increased use of automated information 
technology and new program guidance.

files, including responses to FOIA requests and appeals, and

Information Services (OGIS) of the National Archives and Records

entities, as is determined to be relevant and necessary, outside the

unless the requester asks for the redaction of any personally 
identifiable information (PII). This information may also be used to 
create a publicly available log of requests.
    2. Determinations on Access--To assist the FCC in making an access 
determination, a record from the system may be shared with (a) the 
person or entity that originally submitted the record to the agency or 
is the subject of the record or information; or (b) another Federal 
entity.
    3. Adjudication and Litigation--To the Department of Justice (DOJ), 
or other administrative body before which the FCC is authorized to

his or her individual capacity where DOJ or the FCC has agreed to 
represent the employee; or (d) the United States is a party to 
litigation or has an interest in such litigation, and the use of such 
records by DOJ or the FCC is deemed by the FCC to be relevant and 
necessary to the litigation.
    4. Law Enforcement and Investigation--To disclose pertinent 
information to the appropriate Federal, State, or local agency 
responsible for investigating, prosecuting, enforcing, or implementing 
a statute, rule, regulation, or order, where the FCC becomes aware of 
an indication of a violation or potential violation of civil or 
criminal law or regulation.
    5. Congressional Inquiries--To provide information to a 
congressional office from the record of an individual in response to an 
inquiry from that congressional office made at the request of that 
individual.
    6. Government-wide Program Management and Oversight--To the 
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) for use in its 
records management inspections; to the Government Accountability Office 
(GAO) for oversight purposes; to the Department of Justice (DOJ) to 
obtain that department's advice regarding disclosure obligations under 
the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA); or to the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) to obtain that office's advice regarding obligations 
under the Privacy Act.
    7. National Archives and Records Administration--To the National 
Archives and Records Administration, Office of Government Information 
Services (OGIS), to the extent necessary to fulfill its 
responsibilities in 5 U.S.C. 552(h), to review administrative agency 
policies, procedures, and compliance with the Freedom of Information 
Act (FOIA), and to facilitate OGIS' offering of mediation services to 
resolve disputes between persons making FOIA requests and 
administrative agencies.
    8. Breach Notification--To appropriate agencies, entities, and 
persons when (a) the Commission suspects or has confirmed that the 
security or confidentiality of information in the system of records has 
been compromised; (b) the Commission has determined that as a result of 
the suspected or confirmed compromise there is a risk of harm to 
economic or property interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the 
security or integrity of this system or other systems or programs 
(whether maintained by the Commission or another agency or entity) that 
rely upon the compromised information; and (c) the disclosure made to 
such agencies, entities, and persons is reasonably necessary to assist 
in connection with the Commission's efforts to respond to the suspected 
or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm; and
