CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    Individuals who have requested access to information pursuant to 
FOIA or the Privacy Act; individuals who have made a request to access 
or correct records pertaining to themselves; persons who, on behalf of 
another individual, have made a request to access or correct that 
individual's records; and individuals whose requests and/or records 
have been referred to CIGIE by other agencies.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    The system maintains records received, created, or compiled in 
processing FOIA and Privacy Act requests or appeals, including, but not 
limited to, correspondence or internal memoranda related to the 
processing of these requests and documents relevant to administrative 
appeals and litigation under FOIA and the Privacy Act. Records will 
also contain such data as the name of requester, address of requester, 
and subject of request.

RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES:
    Information is derived from the individuals and entities making 
requests, the records searched in the process of responding to 
requests, and other agencies referring requests for access to or 
correction of records.

OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:
    In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under the

this system of records may specifically be disclosed outside of CIGIE 
as a routine use pursuant to the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3)) as 
follows:
    A. To a Member of Congress in response to an inquiry from that 
Member made at the request of the individual. In such cases, however, 
the Member's right to a record is no greater than that of the 
individual.
    B. If the disclosure of certain records to the Department of 
Justice (DOJ) is relevant and necessary to litigation and is compatible 
with the purpose for which the records were collected, CIGIE may 
disclose those records to the DOJ. CIGIE may make such a disclosure if 
one of the following parties is involved in the litigation or has an 
interest in the litigation:
    1. CIGIE or any component thereof; or
    2. Any employee or former employee of CIGIE in his or her official 
capacity; or
    3. Any employee or former employee of CIGIE in his or her 
individual

[[Page 51408]]

capacity when the DOJ has agreed to represent the employee; or
    4. The United States, if CIGIE determines that litigation is likely 
to affect CIGIE or any of its components.
    C. If disclosure of certain records to a court, adjudicative body 
before which CIGIE is authorized to appear, individual or entity 
designated by CIGIE or otherwise empowered to resolve disputes, counsel 
or other representative, party, or potential witness is relevant and 
necessary to litigation and is compatible with the purpose for which 
the records were collected, CIGIE may disclose those records to the 
court, adjudicative body, individual or entity, counsel or other 
representative, party, or potential witness. CIGIE may make such a 
disclosure if one of the following parties is involved in the 
litigation or has an interest in the litigation:
    1. CIGIE or any component thereof; or
    2. Any employee or former employee of CIGIE in his or her official 
capacity; or
    3. Any employee or former employee of CIGIE in his or her

    4. The United States, if CIGIE determines that litigation is likely 
to affect CIGIE or any of its components.
    D. To the appropriate Federal, state, local, tribal, or foreign 
agency responsible for investigating, prosecuting, enforcing, or

is relevant to a violation or potential violation of civil or criminal 
law or regulation within the jurisdiction of the receiving entity.
    E. To officials and employees of any Federal agency to the extent 
the record contains information that is relevant to that agency's 
decision concerning the hiring, appointment, or retention of an 
employee; issuance of a security clearance; execution of a security or 
suitability investigation; or classification of a job.
    F. To the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)

    H. To any appropriate Federal, state, or local agency or entity to:
    1. Permit a decision as to access, amendment or correction of 
records to be made in consultation with or by that agency; or
    2. Verify the identity of an individual or the accuracy of 
information submitted by an individual who has requested access to or 
amendment or correction of records.
    I. To NARA, Office of Government Information Services (OGIS), to 
the extent necessary to fulfill its responsibilities in 5 U.S.C. 
552(h), to review administrative agency policies, procedures, and 
compliance with the FOIA, and to facilitate OGIS's offering of 
mediation services to resolve disputes between persons making FOIA 
requests and administrative agencies.
    J. To appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when: CIGIE 
suspects or has confirmed that there has been a breach of the system of 
records; CIGIE has determined that as a result of the suspected or 
confirmed breach there is a risk of harm to individuals, CIGIE 
(including its information systems, programs, and operations), the

such agencies, entities, and persons is reasonably necessary to assist 
in connection with CIGIE's efforts to respond to the suspected or 
confirmed breach or to prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm.

(including its information systems, programs, and operations), the
