Notice of a renewal of an existing computer matching program that will expire on April 9, 2017. BILLING CODE 8025–01–P VerDate Sep<11>2014 Privacy Act of 1974, as Amended; Computer Matching Program (SSA/Law Enforcement Agency (Source Jurisdiction))—Match Number 5001 Jkt 241001 In accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act, as PO 00000 Frm 00116 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 amended, this notice announces a renewal of an existing computer matching program that we are currently conducting with Source Jurisdiction. DATES: We will file a report of the subject matching program with the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate; the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform of the House of Representatives; and the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The matching program will be effective as indicated below. ADDRESSES: Interested parties may comment on this notice by either telefaxing to (410) 966–0869 or writing to the Acting Executive Director, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of the General Counsel, Social Security Administration, 617 Altmeyer Building, 6401 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21235–6401. All comments received will be available for public inspection at this address. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Acting Executive Director, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of the General Counsel, as shown above. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. General The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Public Law (Pub. L.) 100–503), amended the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) by describing the conditions under which computer matching involving the Federal government could be performed and adding certain protections for persons applying for, and receiving, Federal benefits. Section 7201 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101–508) further amended the Privacy Act regarding protections for such persons. The Privacy Act, as amended, regulates the use of computer matching by Federal agencies when records in a system of records are matched with other Federal, State, or local government records. It requires Federal agencies involved in computer matching programs to: (1) Negotiate written agreements with the other agency or agencies participating in the matching programs; (2) Obtain approval of the matching agreement by the Data Integrity Boards of the participating Federal agencies; (3) Publish notice of the computer matching program in the Federal Register; (4) Furnish detailed reports about matching programs to Congress and OMB; E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 8, 2016 / Notices (5) Notify applicants and beneficiaries that their records are subject to matching; and (6) Verify match findings before reducing, suspending, terminating, or denying a person’s benefits or payments. B. SSA Computer Matches Subject to the Privacy Act We have taken action to ensure that all of our computer matching programs comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act, as amended. Glenn Sklar, Acting Executive Director, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of the General Counsel. Notice of Computer Matching Program, SSA with the Law Enforcement Agency (Source Jurisdiction) A. Participating Agencies SSA and Source Jurisdiction. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES B. Purpose of the Matching Program The purpose of this matching program is to establish the terms, conditions, and safeguards under which we will conduct a computer matching program with Source Jurisdiction in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (5 U.S.C. 552a), and the regulations and guidance promulgated thereunder, to identify individuals in the Source Jurisdiction who are (1) fleeing fugitive felons, parole violators, or probation violators, as defined by the Social Security Act (Act) and in accordance with the Martinez Settlement and the Clark Court Order, as defined below; and who are also (2) Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients, Retirement, Survivors and Disability Insurance (RSDI) beneficiaries, Special Veterans Benefit (SVB) beneficiaries, or representative payees for SSI recipients, RSDI beneficiaries, or SVB beneficiaries. C. Authority for Conducting the Matching Program Sections 1611(e)(4)(A), 202(x)(l)(A)(iv) and (v), and 804(a)(2) and (3) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1382(e)(4)(A), 402(x)(l)(A)(iv) and (v), and 1004(a)(2) and (3)) prohibit the payment of SSI, RSDI, or SVB benefits to an SSI recipient, RSDI beneficiary, or SVB beneficiary for any month during which such individual flees to avoid prosecution, or custody or confinement after conviction, under the applicable laws of the jurisdiction from which the person flees, for a crime or attempt to commit a crime considered to be a felony under the laws of said jurisdiction. These sections of the Act VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:27 Nov 07, 2016 Jkt 241001 also prohibit payment of SSI, RSDI, or SVB benefits to a recipient/beneficiary in jurisdictions that do not define such crimes as felonies, but as crimes punishable by death or imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year (regardless of the actual sentence imposed), and to an individual who violates a condition of probation or parole imposed under Federal or state law. As a result of a settlement of a nationwide class action in Martinez v. Astrue, No. 08–4735 (N.D. Cal. September 24, 2009) (Martinez Settlement), our nonpayment of benefits under these sections of the Act is limited to individuals with certain flight-coded or escape-coded warrants. Further, as a result of a settlement of a nationwide class action in Clark v. Astrue, 06 Civ. 15521 (S.D. NY, April 13, 2012) (Clark Court Order), our nonpayment of benefits under these sections of the Act cannot be based solely on the existence of parole or probation arrest warrants. Sections 1631(a)(2)(B)(iii)(V), 205(j)(2)(C)(i)(V), and 807(d)(1)(E) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1383(a)(2)(B)(iii)(V), 405(j)(2)(C)(i)(V), 1007(d)(1)(E)), which prohibit us from using a person as a representative payee when such person is a person described in sections 1611(e)(4)(A), 202(x)(1)(A)(iv), or 804(a)(2) of the Act. The legal authority for our disclosure of information to the Source Jurisdiction is: Sections 1106(a), 1611(e)(5), 1631(a)(2)(B)(xiv), 202(x)(3)(C), 205(j)(2)(B)(iii) and 807(b)(3) of the Act; the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3)); and our disclosure regulations promulgated at 20 CFR 401.150. The settlement terms in Martinez v. Astrue and Clark v. Astrue do not restrict this disclosure authority in any manner. D. Categories of Records and Persons Covered by the Matching Program The Source Jurisdiction will identify individuals who are fleeing fugitive felons, probation violators, or parole violators in its records originating from various databases. The Source Jurisdiction will prepare and disclose its records electronically (e.g., Government to Government Services Online) with clear identification of the record source. We will match the following systems of records with the incoming Source Jurisdiction records to determine individuals who receive SSI, RSDI, SVB benefits, or individuals serving as representative payees: Supplemental Security Income Record and Special Veterans Benefits (SSR/SVB), 60–0103, published at 71 FR 1830 on January 11, 2006 and updated on December 10, PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 78681 2007, published at 72 FR 69723; Master Beneficiary Record (MBR), SSA/ORSIS 60–0090, published at 71 FR 1826 on January 11, 2006 and updated on December 10, 2007 at 72 FR 69723 and on July 5, 2013 at 78 FR 40542; Master Representative Payee File, SSA/NCC 60–0222, published on April 22, 2013 (78 FR 23811); and, Master Files of Social Security Number Holders and SSN Applications, SSA/OTSO 60–0058, published on December 29, 2010 (75 FR 82121) and updated on July 5, 2013 (78 FR 40542) and February 13, 2014 (79 FR 8780). The Alphident file comes under this system of record. The Source Jurisdiction will provide specific data elements for individuals as specified in Attachment A. Our Data Elements Matched: SSR/SVB and MBR: Individual’s SSN and payment status; Master Files of SSN Holders and SSN Applications: Individual’s name, date of birth, SSN, and gender; Master Representative Payee File: Individual’s SSN and status as a representative payee. The purpose of using the Alphident file under this agreement is to locate an individual’s SSN by name search. We will use the Alphident file when the Source Jurisdiction either fails to provide an SSN or provides an incorrect SSN for the named individual. The Alphident file allows us to locate the SSN by utilizing electronic data systems currently available. We match the name and date of birth data received from the Source Jurisdiction against the Alphident file. If both sets of data match only one record in our file, we assume that the SSN associated with the matched name and date of birth belongs to the person named by the Source Jurisdiction. We then treat the individual whose SSN was generated through the Alphident search in the same manner as those individuals whose SSNs provided by the Source Jurisdiction matched our records. If the name of an individual matches with a single SSN in our records, we assume that the SSN associated with the matching record belongs to the individual in the Source Jurisdiction’s records, even if the date of birth does not match. We then considers this a matched item. E. Inclusive Dates of the Matching Program The effective date of this matching program is April 10, 2017, provided that the following notice periods have lapsed: 30 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register and 40 days after notice of the matching program is sent to Congress and OMB. The matching program will continue for E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1 78682 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 8, 2016 / Notices 18 months from the effective date and, if both agencies meet certain conditions, it may extend for an additional 12 months thereafter.

This estimate includes time spent reviewing instructions; searching existing data sources; gathering and maintaining the data needed; completing and reviewing the collection of information; and converting the data from the carrier’s individual accounting system to the Board’s Uniform System of Accounts (USOA), which ensures that the information will be presented in a consistent format across all reporting railroads. See 49 U.S.C. 11141–43, 11161–64; 49 CFR 1200–01. Frequency of Response: Annual. Total Annual Hour Burden: No more than 5,600 hours annually. Total Annual ‘‘Non-Hour Burden’’ Cost: No ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection have been identified. The information is submitted electronically. Needs and Uses: Annual reports are required to be filed by Class I railroads under 49 U.S.C. 11145. The reports show operating expenses and operating statistics of the carriers. Operating expenses include costs for right-of-way and structures, equipment, train and yard operations, and general and administrative expenses. Operating statistics include such items as carmiles, revenue-ton-miles, and gross tonmiles. The reports are used by the Board, other Federal agencies, and industry groups to monitor and assess railroad industry growth, financial stability, traffic, and operations, and to identify industry changes that may affect national transportation policy. Information from this report is also entered into the Board’s Uniform Rail Costing System (URCS), which is a cost measurement methodology. URCS, which was developed by the Board pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 11161, is used as a tool in rail rate proceedings (in PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 accordance with 49 U.S.C. 10707(d)) to calculate the variable costs associated with providing a particular service. The Board also uses this information to more effectively carry out other regulatory responsibilities, including: Acting on railroad requests for authority to engage in Board-regulated financial transactions such as mergers, acquisitions of control, and consolidations, see 49 U.S.C. 11323–24; analyzing the information that the Board obtains through the annual railroad industry waybill sample, see 49 CFR 1244; measuring off-branch costs in railroad abandonment proceedings, in accordance with 49 CFR 1152.32(n); developing the ‘‘rail cost adjustment factors,’’ in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 10708; and conducting investigations and rulemakings. Under the PRA, a federal agency that conducts or sponsors a collection of information must display a currently valid OMB control number. A collection of information, which is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c), includes agency requirements that persons submit reports, keep records, or provide information to the agency, third parties, or the public. Under 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), federal agencies are required to provide, prior to an agency’s submitting a collection to OMB for approval, a 60-day notice and comment period through publication in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information. Information from certain schedules contained in these reports is compiled and published on the Board’s Web site, www.stb.gov. Information in these reports is not available from any other source.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. General

    The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Public 
Law (Pub. L.) 100-503), amended the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) by 
describing the conditions under which computer matching involving the 
Federal government could be performed and adding certain protections 
for persons applying for, and receiving, Federal benefits. Section 7201 
of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-508) 
further amended the Privacy Act regarding protections for such persons.
    The Privacy Act, as amended, regulates the use of computer matching 
by Federal agencies when records in a system of records are matched 
with other Federal, State, or local government records. It requires 
Federal agencies involved in computer matching programs to:
    (1) Negotiate written agreements with the other agency or agencies 
participating in the matching programs;
    (2) Obtain approval of the matching agreement by the Data Integrity 
Boards of the participating Federal agencies;
    (3) Publish notice of the computer matching program in the Federal 
Register;
    (4) Furnish detailed reports about matching programs to Congress 
and OMB;

[[Page 78681]]

    (5) Notify applicants and beneficiaries that their records are 
subject to matching; and
    (6) Verify match findings before reducing, suspending, terminating, 
or denying a person's benefits or payments.

B. SSA Computer Matches Subject to the Privacy Act

    We have taken action to ensure that all of our computer matching 
programs comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act, as amended.

Glenn Sklar,
Acting Executive Director, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of 
the General Counsel.

    Notice of Computer Matching Program, SSA with the Law Enforcement 
Agency (Source Jurisdiction)

A. Participating Agencies

    SSA and Source Jurisdiction.

B. Purpose of the Matching Program

    The purpose of this matching program is to establish the terms, 
conditions, and safeguards under which we will conduct a computer 
matching program with Source Jurisdiction in accordance with the 
Privacy Act of 1974, as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy 
Protection Act of 1988 (5 U.S.C. 552a), and the regulations and 
guidance promulgated thereunder, to identify individuals in the Source 
Jurisdiction who are (1) fleeing fugitive felons, parole violators, or 
probation violators, as defined by the Social Security Act (Act) and in 
accordance with the Martinez Settlement and the Clark Court Order, as 
defined below; and who are also (2) Supplemental Security Income (SSI) 
recipients, Retirement, Survivors and Disability Insurance (RSDI) 
beneficiaries, Special Veterans Benefit (SVB) beneficiaries, or 
representative payees for SSI recipients, RSDI beneficiaries, or SVB 
beneficiaries.

C. Authority for Conducting the Matching Program

    Sections 1611(e)(4)(A), 202(x)(l)(A)(iv) and (v), and 804(a)(2) and 
(3) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1382(e)(4)(A), 402(x)(l)(A)(iv) and (v), and 
1004(a)(2) and (3)) prohibit the payment of SSI, RSDI, or SVB benefits 
to an SSI recipient, RSDI beneficiary, or SVB beneficiary for any month 
during which such individual flees to avoid prosecution, or custody or 
confinement after conviction, under the applicable laws of the 
jurisdiction from which the person flees, for a crime or attempt to 
commit a crime considered to be a felony under the laws of said 
jurisdiction. These sections of the Act also prohibit payment of SSI, 
RSDI, or SVB benefits to a recipient/beneficiary in jurisdictions that 
do not define such crimes as felonies, but as crimes punishable by 
death or imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year (regardless of the 
actual sentence imposed), and to an individual who violates a condition 
of probation or parole imposed under Federal or state law. As a result 
of a settlement of a nationwide class action in Martinez v. Astrue, No. 
08-4735 (N.D. Cal. September 24, 2009) (Martinez Settlement), our 
nonpayment of benefits under these sections of the Act is limited to 
individuals with certain flight-coded or escape-coded warrants. 
Further, as a result of a settlement of a nationwide class action in 
Clark v. Astrue, 06 Civ. 15521 (S.D. NY, April 13, 2012) (Clark Court 
Order), our nonpayment of benefits under these sections of the Act 
cannot be based solely on the existence of parole or probation arrest 
warrants. Sections 1631(a)(2)(B)(iii)(V), 205(j)(2)(C)(i)(V), and 
807(d)(1)(E) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1383(a)(2)(B)(iii)(V), 
405(j)(2)(C)(i)(V), 1007(d)(1)(E)), which prohibit us from using a 
person as a representative payee when such person is a person described 
in sections 1611(e)(4)(A), 202(x)(1)(A)(iv), or 804(a)(2) of the Act.
    The legal authority for our disclosure of information to the Source 
Jurisdiction is: Sections 1106(a), 1611(e)(5), 1631(a)(2)(B)(xiv), 
202(x)(3)(C), 205(j)(2)(B)(iii) and 807(b)(3) of the Act; the Privacy 
Act of 1974, as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection 
Act of 1988 (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3)); and our disclosure regulations 
promulgated at 20 CFR 401.150. The settlement terms in Martinez v. 
Astrue and Clark v. Astrue do not restrict this disclosure authority in 
any manner.

D. Categories of Records and Persons Covered by the Matching Program

    The Source Jurisdiction will identify individuals who are fleeing 
fugitive felons, probation violators, or parole violators in its 
records originating from various databases. The Source Jurisdiction 
will prepare and disclose its records electronically (e.g., Government 
to Government Services Online) with clear identification of the record 
source. We will match the following systems of records with the 
incoming Source Jurisdiction records to determine individuals who 
receive SSI, RSDI, SVB benefits, or individuals serving as 
representative payees: Supplemental Security Income Record and Special 
Veterans Benefits (SSR/SVB), 60-0103, published at 71 FR 1830 on 
January 11, 2006 and updated on December 10, 2007, published at 72 FR 
69723; Master Beneficiary Record (MBR), SSA/ORSIS 60-0090, published at 
71 FR 1826 on January 11, 2006 and updated on December 10, 2007 at 72 
FR 69723 and on July 5, 2013 at 78 FR 40542; Master Representative 
Payee File, SSA/NCC 60-0222, published on April 22, 2013 (78 FR 23811); 
and, Master Files of Social Security Number Holders and SSN 
Applications, SSA/OTSO 60-0058, published on December 29, 2010 (75 FR 
82121) and updated on July 5, 2013 (78 FR 40542) and February 13, 2014 
(79 FR 8780). The Alphident file comes under this system of record.
    The Source Jurisdiction will provide specific data elements for 
individuals as specified in Attachment A. Our Data Elements Matched: 
SSR/SVB and MBR: Individual's SSN and payment status; Master Files of 
SSN Holders and SSN Applications: Individual's name, date of birth, 
SSN, and gender; Master Representative Payee File: Individual's SSN and 
status as a representative payee.
    The purpose of using the Alphident file under this agreement is to 
locate an individual's SSN by name search. We will use the Alphident 
file when the Source Jurisdiction either fails to provide an SSN or 
provides an incorrect SSN for the named individual. The Alphident file 
allows us to locate the SSN by utilizing electronic data systems 
currently available. We match the name and date of birth data received 
from the Source Jurisdiction against the Alphident file. If both sets 
of data match only one record in our file, we assume that the SSN 
associated with the matched name and date of birth belongs to the 
person named by the Source Jurisdiction. We then treat the individual 
whose SSN was generated through the Alphident search in the same manner 
as those individuals whose SSNs provided by the Source Jurisdiction 
matched our records. If the name of an individual matches with a single 
SSN in our records, we assume that the SSN associated with the matching 
record belongs to the individual in the Source Jurisdiction's records, 
even if the date of birth does not match. We then considers this a 
matched item.
