Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130, Appendix I, 
``Federal Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About 
Individuals,'' the Department of Commerce (Department) is issuing a 
notice of intent to establish an amended system of records entitled,

of records, and purpose, as well as to the lists of system locations 
and system managers and addresses. Updates also include the addition of 
a new routine use for student volunteers, individuals working under a 
personal services contract, and other workers who technically do not 
have the status of Federal employees.

DATES: To be considered, written comments must be submitted on or 
before February 13, 2017. Unless comments are received, the amended

[[Page 3722]]

system of records will become effective as proposed on February 21, 
2017. If comments are received, the Department will publish a 
subsequent notice in the Federal Register within 10 days after the 
comment period closes, stating that the current system of records will 
remain in effect until publication of a final action in the Federal
