For purposes of OMB clearance, OFCCP divides its responsibilities under these authorities into two categories: (1) Construction and (2) non-construction (supply and service). This clearance request covers the construction information collection. It also merges the recordkeeping and reporting PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 44663 requirements of two existing information collections with this ICR. Specifically, the ICR entitled ‘‘Prohibiting Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity by Contractors and Subcontractors’’ that covers prohibitions against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity,1 and the ICR entitled ‘‘Government Contractors, Prohibitions Against Pay Secrecy Policies and Actions’’ that covers prohibitions against pay secrecy policies and actions.2 To view the current construction information collection, go to https:// www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAViewICR?ref_nbr=201406-1250-001. II. Review Focus: DOL is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the compliance and enforcement functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and • minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. III. Current Actions: DOL seeks the approval of the renewal of this information in order to carry out its responsibility to enforce the antidiscrimination and affirmative action provisions of the three legal authorities it administers. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval of the information collection request; they will also become a matter of public record.

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

[CPCLO Order No. 009-2017]


Privacy Act of 1974; Systems of Records

AGENCY: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, United 
States Department of Justice.

ACTION: Notice of a modified system of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 and Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-108, notice is hereby given that the 
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), a component 
within the United States Department of Justice (DOJ or Department), 
proposes to modify a system of records notice titled JUSTICE/ATF-008, 
``Regulatory Enforcement Record System.''

DATES: In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), this notice is 
effective upon publication, subject to a 30-day notice and comment 
period in which to comment on the routine uses, described below. 
Therefore, please submit any comments by October 25, 2017.

ADDRESSES: The public, OMB, and Congress are invited to submit any 
comments by mail to the United States Department of Justice, Office of 
Privacy and Civil Liberties, ATTN: Privacy Analyst, National Place 
Building, 1331 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Suite 1000, Washington, DC 
20530; by facsimile at 202-307-0693; or by email at 
privacy.compliance@usdoj.gov. To ensure proper handling, please 
reference the above CPCLO Order No. on your correspondence.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peter Chisholm, Acting Chief, 
Disclosure Division, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and 
Explosives, 99 New York Avenue NE., Washington, DC 20226, or by 
facsimile at 202-648-9619.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ATF has not changed the maintenance or 
operations of the existing system of records. However, to appropriately 
inform the public on this system of

[[Page 44660]]

records, ATF is updating the system of records notice for JUSTICE/ATF-
008, last published in its entirety in the Federal Register at 68 FR 
3551 (Jan. 24, 2003), and amended at 82 FR 24147 (May 25, 2017). First, 
ATF has made certain editorial changes to this system of records 
notice. These editorial changes include: Updating ATF contact 
information (for example, adding the new ATF Headquarters address and 
Web page information); informing the public of ATF's records control 
schedule change; and making other editorial and conforming changes. 
Some editorial changes have also been made to the routine uses, 
including modifying the Department's model routine uses to more 
accurately describe the agencies or entities that may require 
information from ATF, as well as re-ordering the routine uses to list 
the routine uses unique to this system of records first, followed by 
the Department's model routine uses.
    Second, ATF has made substantive updates to certain sections of 
this system of records notice. These modifications include: Updating 
the listed authorities; updating the security classification; adding to 
the list of system managers; supplementing the purposes for the system 
to more accurately describe why ATF collects, maintains, uses, and 
disseminates regulatory enforcement records; clarifying certain 
descriptions of categories of records, individuals, and sources; and 
revising and adding routine uses to more accurately describe the 
entities to or circumstances under which ATF may disclose regulatory 
information. Examples of these changes include: (1) Adding a routine 
use that allows ATF to disclose information to a licensed industry 
member to verify the validity of a license or permit before the 
distribution of explosives materials, accomplished electronically, 
through an ``EZ-Check'' system, for purposes of enhancing regulatory 
enforcement and public safety as envisioned by the Safe Explosives Act, 
Title XI, Subtitle C, of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public Law 
107-296, 116 Stat. 2135, 2280; (2) republishing two breach response 
routine uses consistent with the requirements in OMB Memorandum M-17-
12; (3) adding a routine use that would allow ATF to provide a copy of 
the hearing transcript to the subject of a revocation hearing; and (4) 
adding to the purpose of this system of records, which explains that 
ATF provides verification of suitability, eligibility, or qualification 
of individuals who are engaged or propose to engage in activities 
regulated by ATF. The entire notice is republished for the convenience 
of the public.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), ATF has provided a report to 
OMB and to Congress on this notice of a modified system of records.
