As a result of a biennial review of this system, the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency is updating this system of records notice to update the system location, remove the use of the term vendors for clarity as it is interchangeable with contractors in this instance, and replace the use of the term National Processing Service Center (NPSC) with the new term Regional Service Center (RSC). Additionally, this notice includes non-substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes to modify and reissue a current DHS system of records titled, ‘‘DHS/FEMA–002 Quality Assurance Recording System of Records.’’ DHS/FEMA published this system of records notice because FEMA collects, uses, maintains, and retrieves personally identifiable information (PII) from its employees and contractors for internal employee performance evaluations, training, process improvement, and quality assurance purposes to improve customer service to individual assistance and public assistance applicants. FEMA collects information from individual applicants (including PII) as necessary, or uses information previously collected from them to provide customer service to these applicants. FEMA is updating this system of records notice to provide greater transparency to the public on its migration to the Contact Center Capability Modernization Program (C3MP), a new information technology system. FEMA is updating the system location to: 1) include the C3MP IT system, which maintains these records; 2) remove the use of the term vendors for clarity as it is interchangeable with contractors in this instance; and 3) replace the use of the term National Processing Service Center (NPSC) with the new term Regional Service Center (RSC). Additionally, FEMA is making non-substantive grammatical changes throughout this notice for the purpose of clarification. The purpose of this system of records is to enable FEMA’s Quality Control Department, Customer Satisfaction Analysis Section, Contract Oversight Management Section, and FEMA RSC Supervisory staff to better monitor, evaluate, and assess its employees and contractors so that FEMA can improve customer service to those seeking disaster assistance. The purpose is consistent with FEMA’s mission to improve its capability to respond to all hazards and support the citizens of our Nation. FEMA is authorized to collect information in order to properly administer the programs that are E:\FR\FM\14JYN1.SGM 14JYN1
