The Postal ServiceTM has determined that one General Privacy Act System of Records (SOR) should be revised to modify Categories of Records in the System, Purpose(s), Routine Uses of Records Maintained in the System, Including Categories of Users and the Purposes of Such Uses, along with Retention and Disposal. The Postal Service is proposing modifications to SOR 100.400 to reflect a new benefit to allow employees, who voluntarily elect to be able to automatically upload information from their individual W–2 and 1095–C forms directly to a third-party tax preparation service. Employee tax information, such as their Form W–2, Wage and Tax Statement and Form 1095–C, EmployerProvided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage information, will remain securely safeguarded within USPS computer information systems and only uploaded to third-party tax preparation services upon voluntary request and consent of the individual employee. Uploading this information in a tax preparation service is considered an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) best practice. This will save employees from having to enter the information manually, providing convenience and reducing the risk of potential keying errors. Therefore, the SOR is being revised to include an appropriate purpose, routine use for the transfer of tax information, and retention of the employee tax information. In addition, other updates are included to account for separate administrative changes, which include the collection of employee’s ACE ID for computer access in the Time and Attendance System for employees entering payroll information. Similarly, Retention and Disposal times are being updated to more accurately reflect record retention for monetary awards, ideas submitted by employees under the formal ideas program, and for overtime administrative records. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, or arguments on this proposal. A report of the proposed modifications has been sent to Congress and to the Office of Management and Budget for their evaluations. The Postal Service does not expect this amended system of records to have any adverse effect on individual privacy rights. Accordingly, for the reasons stated, the Postal Service proposes changes in the existing system of records as follows: PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11489 USPS 100.400 SYSTEM NAME: Personnel Compensation and Payroll Records * * * * * CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM: [Change item 1 to read as follows:] 1.

Summary of the Application 1. The Advisor will serve as the investment adviser to the Subadvised Series pursuant to an investment advisory agreement with the Trust (each an ‘‘Investment Management Agreement’’).1 The Advisor will provide the Subadvised Series with continuous and comprehensive investment management services subject to the supervision of, and policies established by, each board of trustees of the Trust (‘‘Board’’). The Investment Management Agreement permits the Advisor, subject to the approval of the Board, to delegate to one or more sub-advisers (each, a ‘‘Sub-Advisor’’ and collectively, the ‘‘Sub-Advisors’’) the responsibility to provide the day-to-day portfolio 1 Applicants request relief with respect to any existing and any future series of the Trust and any other existing or future registered open-end management company or series thereof that intends to rely on the requested order in the future and that: (a) Is advised by BAIA or its successor or by any entity controlling, controlled by, or under common control with BAIA or its successor (each, also an ‘‘Advisor’’); (b) uses the multi-managers structure described in the application; and (c) complies with the terms and conditions of the application (any such series, a ‘‘Subadvised Series’’). For purposes of the requested order, ‘‘successor’’ is limited to an entity that results from a reorganization into another jurisdiction or a change in the type of business organization. PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 investment management of each Subadvised Series, subject to the supervision and direction of the Advisor. The primary responsibility for managing the Subadvised Series will remain vested in the Advisor. The Advisor will hire, evaluate, allocate assets to and oversee the Sub-Advisors, including determining whether a SubAdvisor should be terminated, at all times subject to the authority of the Board. 2. Applicants request an exemption to permit the Advisor, subject to Board approval, to hire certain Sub-Advisors pursuant to Sub-Advisory Agreements and materially amend existing SubAdvisory Agreements without obtaining the shareholder approval required under section 15(a) of the Act and rule 18f–2 under the Act.2 Applicants also seek an exemption from the Disclosure Requirements to permit a Subadvised Series to disclose (as both a dollar amount and a percentage of the Subadvised Series’s net assets): (a) The aggregate fees paid to the Advisor and any Wholly-Owned Sub-Advisors; (b) the aggregate fees paid to Sub-Advisors other than Affiliated Sub-Advisors and (c) the aggregate fees paid to any Affiliated Sub-Advisor (collectively, ‘‘Aggregate Fee Disclosure’’). 3. Applicants agree that any order granting the requested relief will be subject to the terms and conditions stated in the Application. Such terms and conditions provide for, among other safeguards, appropriate disclosure to Subadvised Series shareholders and notification about sub-advisory changes and enhanced Board oversight to protect the interests of the Subadvised Series’ shareholders. 4. Section 6(c) of the Act provides that the Commission may exempt any person, security, or transaction or any class or classes of persons, securities, or transactions from any provisions of the Act, or any rule thereunder, if such relief is necessary or appropriate in the public interest and consistent with the protection of investors and purposes fairly intended by the policy and provisions of the Act. Applicants believe that the requested relief meets this standard because, as further explained in the Application, the Investment Management Agreements will remain subject to shareholder approval, while the role of the SubAdvisors is substantially similar to that 2 The requested relief will not extend to any SubAdvisor, other than a Wholly-Owned Sub-Advisor, that is an affiliated person, as defined in section 2(a)(3) of the Act, of a Subadvised Series or the Advisor, other than by reason of serving as a subadviser to one or more of the Subadvised Series (‘‘Affiliated Sub-Advisor’’).

in a contrary determination.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is in accordance with the 
Privacy Act requirement that agencies publish their systems of records 
in the Federal Register when there is a revision, change, or addition, 
or when the agency establishes a new system of records. The Postal 
ServiceTM has determined that one General Privacy Act System 
of Records (SOR) should be revised to modify Categories of Records in 
the System, Purpose(s), Routine Uses of Records Maintained in the 
System, Including Categories of Users and the Purposes of Such Uses, 
along with Retention and Disposal.
    The Postal Service is proposing modifications to SOR 100.400 to 
reflect a new benefit to allow employees, who voluntarily elect to be 
able to automatically upload information from their individual W-2 and 
1095-C forms directly to a third-party tax preparation service. 
Employee tax information, such as their Form W-2, Wage and Tax 
Statement and Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and 
Coverage information, will remain securely safeguarded within USPS 
computer information systems and only uploaded to third-party tax 
preparation services upon voluntary request and consent of the 
individual employee. Uploading this information in a tax preparation 
service is considered an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) best practice. 
This will save employees from having to enter the information manually, 
providing convenience and reducing the risk of potential keying errors. 
Therefore, the SOR is being revised to include an appropriate purpose, 
routine use for the transfer of tax information, and retention of the 
employee tax information. In addition, other updates are included to 
account for separate administrative changes, which include the 
collection of employee's ACE ID for computer access in the Time and 
Attendance System for employees entering payroll information. 
Similarly, Retention and Disposal times are being updated to more 
accurately reflect record retention for monetary awards, ideas 
submitted by employees under the formal ideas program, and for overtime 
administrative records.
    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), interested persons are invited to 
submit written data, views, or arguments on this proposal. A report of 
the proposed modifications has been sent to Congress and to the Office 
of Management and Budget for their evaluations. The Postal Service does 
not expect this amended system of records to have any adverse effect on 
individual privacy rights.
    Accordingly, for the reasons stated, the Postal Service proposes
