Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2017-01477
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-01-24
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 notice is hereby given that the Department of the Army proposes to alter a system of records, A0350-1b TRADOC, entitled ``Army Career Tracker (ACT),'' last published at 76 FR 26714 on May 9, 2011. The Army Career Tracker (ACT) exists to enable Soldiers and Army civilians world-wide with career development and transition resources. ACT provides users with a more efficient and effective way to monitor their career development while allowing leaders to track and advise subordinates on personalized leadership development. As a leader development tool, it integrates data on training, education, and experiential learning from a number of source systems into one personalized and easy-to-use interface. ACT allows supervisors to track and advise employees on their leadership development and allows career program managers the ability to reach their geographically dispersed careerists. The Total Army Sponsorship Program is also administered through ACT. The sponsorship program provides Soldiers and Army civilians and their families with resources to facilitate their transition and/or relocation between commands and duty assignments. This alteration to the system of records notice incorporates the applicable DoD Routine Uses in the notice to provide clarity for the public. The categories of individuals has been updated to reflect the inclusion of Army Reserve, Guard, and Reserve Officer Training Corps personnel. The category of records was expanded to cover data that is collected and used in support of the Total Army Sponsorship Program. Further, the authorities were updated to cite the specific sections of the United States Code and identify the DoD issuances that implement the program. The purpose has been revised to clarify the use and description of these records. The systems that are data sources or interface with ACT have been denoted in the records source categories. Lastly, administrative corrections were made to the system location, retrievability, safeguards, system manager and address, notification and record access procedures, and contesting records procedures.
