SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES (1) PBGC Is Proposing To Amend One General Routine Use in Its Prefatory Statement of General Routine Uses PBGC is proposing to amend one general routine use in its Prefatory Statement of General Routine Uses. During a routine review of the General Routine Uses, PBGC determined that the language contained in General Routine Use 1—Law Enforcement should be clarified to reflect that information maintained in a PBGC system of records may be disclosed to law enforcement investigating the potential or actual violation of a statute, regulation, rule or particular program. The language will be further amended to clarify that law enforcement includes tribal entities charged with law enforcement. The amended General Routine Use will read: ‘‘G1. Routine Use—Law Enforcement: A record from this system may be disclosed to law enforcement in the event the record is connected to a violation or potential violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature, and whether arising by general statute, regulation, rule, or order issued pursuant thereto. Such disclosure may be made to the appropriate agency, whether Federal, State, local, or tribal, or other public authority responsible for enforcing, investigating or prosecuting such violation or charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, or rule, regulation, or order issued pursuant VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:12 Feb 12, 2018 Jkt 244001 thereto, if PBGC determines that the records are both relevant and necessary to any enforcement, regulatory, investigative or prospective responsibility of the receiving entity.’’ (2) PBGC Is Proposing To Rescind PBGC–24, Participant Debt Collection Pursuant the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and as part of its ongoing improvement, integration and management efforts, PBGC is proposing to rescind the following system of records notice: PBGC–24, Participant Debt Collection (last published at 81 FR 63321 (September 14, 2016)). With regard to PBGC–24, the Agency will continue to collect and maintain records about individuals who may owe a debt to the Agency and will rely upon an existing PBGC system of records titled PBGC–13, Debt Collection—PBGC (last published at 81 FR 63311 (September 14, 2016)), which is also written for the purpose of collecting any and all debts that be owed to the PBGC. The primary difference between the two systems of records being that PBGC–13 and PBGC–24 have different system managers. Eliminating this notice will have no adverse impact on individuals; rather, its removal will promote the overall streamlining and management of PBGC Privacy Act system of records and reduce the likelihood of any public misunderstanding rooted in the existence of two similar notices. PBGC– 13 will be clarified and amended to reflect both the existing system manager and the former system manager of PBGC–24. (3) PBGC Is Proposing To Establish a New System of Records: PBGC–25, PBGC.GOV Comment Management System PBGC is proposing to establish a new system of records titled, ‘‘PBGC–25, PBGC.GOV Comment Management System—PBGC.’’ The proposed system of records furthers the Agency’s commitment to the E-Government Act of 2002 by promoting the use of electronic services, specifically, providing the public with access to proposed rulemaking and the ability to directly comment on those rules or any other area of concern directly to the Agency via comment field(s) on the PBGC.gov website. The public may also submit supporting materials related to their comments or other area of concern. This system of records may contain records of data points supplied by the user of the comment field, which may include names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, social security numbers, customer identification PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 numbers, user names, internet protocol (IP) addresses or any other information entered in the comment field. In addition, this system will contain comments individuals have submitted through Regulations.gov about PBGC. While this will be a new system of records, PBGC will continue to respect the privacy of individuals using the website and comment field by encouraging users to provide the least amount of information necessary to respond to rulemaking or initiate contact with the Agency. The collection and maintenance of these records is new. Prior to PBGC.gov, PBGC did not solicit, receive or collect rulemaking comments through its public website. (4) PBGC Is Proposing To Add Two Routine Uses to PBGC–2, Disbursements PBGC is proposing to add two routine uses to PBGC–2, Disbursements (last published at 81 FR 63301 (September 14, 2016)). PBGC is proposing the addition of routine use 3, which permits the disclosure of information in this system to the Office of Personnel Management, the Office of Management and Budget, or the Government Accountability Office. This addition will facilitate oversight of payments made from PBGC to various entities, as well as promote transparency and accountability during the payment process. Routine use 3 will read: ‘‘To the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), or the Government Accountability Office (GAO) when the information is required for program evaluation purposes.’’ PBGC is proposing the addition of routine use 4, which permits disclosure of information to consumer reporting agencies in order to facilitate and collect claims for money or property due to PBGC. New routine use 4 will read, ‘‘A record from this system may be disclosed to a consumer reporting agency in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).’’ (5) PBGC Is Proposing To Add a Routine Use to PBGC–3, Employee Payroll, Leave, and Attendance Records PBGC is proposing to add a routine use to PBGC–3: Employee Payroll, Leave, and Attendance Records (last published at 81 FR 63301 (September 14, 2016)). This routine use is necessary as it allows PBGC to collect claims for money or property. The new routine use will read, ‘‘A record from this system may be disclosed to a consumer reporting agency in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).’’ E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 30 / Tuesday, February 13, 2018 / Notices (6) PBGC Is Proposing To Clarify the Types of Plan Information Contained in the System, Amend Two Routine Uses and Add a Routine Use to PBGC–6, Plan Participant and Beneficiary Data PBGC is proposing the following revisions to PBGC–6, Plan Participant and Beneficiary Data (last published at 81 FR 63303 (September 14, 2016)): Clarification of the types of plan information contained in the system; amendment of two routine uses; and, addition of one new routine use. PBGC is proposing the clarification of the name of the type of plans records contained in the system of records. Currently, plan information is described as ‘‘pension plans.’’ PBGC would clarify the name of the type of plans to ‘‘retirement plans’’ in order to reflect the inclusion of plans that do not meet the definition of ‘‘pension plans.’’ PBGC is proposing the amendment of routine use 13, which currently permits disclosure to government agencies in order to verify payment eligibility. After review of the routine use and agency practices, we have determined that information needed to verify eligibility to receive payment may be held by third parties with whom PBGC has a contractual relationship. The amended portion of routine use 13 will permit disclosure and read, ‘‘a third party with whom PBGC has a contractual relationship.’’ This amendment will further the purpose of the Agency by ensuring payments are made only to individuals eligible to receive such payments. PBGC is proposing the amendment of routine use 16, which currently permits the disclosure of a beneficiary’s name and date of birth to the participant. PBGC wishes to disclose additional types of beneficiary information to the participant. Amended routine use 16 will read, ‘‘With the exception of third party social security numbers, all beneficiary information contained in the participant file (such as: Names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and dates of birth) provided by the subject of the record may be disclosed to the subject of the record, upon written request to the Disclosure Officer in accordance with the Record Access Procedure outlined below.’’ Under the existing routine use, PBGC withholds all information except the name and date of birth of a beneficiary that is contained in participant’s file, even though it was often the participant who provided the beneficiary’s personal information (as this information is required from the participant when naming their beneficiary). By allowing PBGC to disclose all information VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:12 Feb 12, 2018 Jkt 244001 regarding the beneficiary to the participant, except their social security number, the amended routine use will ensure that a participant can readily confirm or amend information about their beneficiary, while still protecting the beneficiary’s social security number. In addition, this routine use will improve customer service without sacrificing any individuals’ privacy interests. PBGC is proposing the addition of a routine use to PBGC–6. New routine use 18 will read, ‘‘A record from this system may be disclosed to a consumer reporting agency in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).’’ This routine use is necessary as it allows the disclosure of information to consumer reporting agencies in order to facilitate and collect claims for money or property due to PBGC. (7) PBGC Is Proposing To Add One Routine Use to PBGC–8, Employee Relations Files PBGC’s review of its system of records notices revealed the need to be able to disclose certain records from the PBGC system of records documenting employee grievances to union representatives. Accordingly, PBGC is proposing to add one additional routine use to PBGC–8; Employee Relations Files (last published at 81 FR 63304 (September 14, 2016), in furtherance of resolving a grievant’s complaint and limiting such disclosure to the extent that it is relevant to the subject matter involved in the union issue or proceeding and if disclosure would be in the interest of the subject individual. New routine use 3 will read: ‘‘A record from this system may be disclosed to a union representative, Hearing Examiner or Arbitrator for the purpose of representation or in order to conduct a hearing in connection with an employee’s grievance or appeal.’’ (8) PBGC Is Proposing To Amend the Name of the System of Record, Amend One Routine Use, Correct the Numbering of Published Routine Uses, and Add Two Routine Uses to PBGC– 9, Unclaimed Pensions PBGC’s review of its system of records notices revealed the need to limit the disclosure of certain information and permit the disclosure of other information from the PBGC system of records containing information on unclaimed retirement funds. PBGC is proposing to amend the name of the system, amend one routine use, correct the numbering of published routine uses and add two routine uses to PBGC–9: Unclaimed Pensions (last published at 81 FR 63306 (September 14, 2016)). PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6249 These changes are designed to ensure that the system name adequately reflects the information contained therein and to ensure that the Agency may fulfill its mission of paying benefits to participants or their beneficiaries while still protecting individual privacy rights. The new name of the system of record will be PBGC–9: Unclaimed Retirement Funds. In the last published version of this records notice, there were two routine uses number 7. PBGC is proposing to amend the first routine use 7 by removing language permitting the disclosure of the last known address of participants and beneficiaries. PBGC believes that not disclosing this information to the public protects the privacy rights of these individuals. Further, the information that will continue to be disclosed pursuant to routine use 7 is more than sufficient to make the public aware and potentially identify and locate individuals who may be owed a benefit payment. PBGC also proposes the correction of numbering by revising the latter routine use to 8. There are no further changes to this routine use and will be republished to read: 8. Names, social security numbers, last known addresses, dates of birth and death, employment history, and pay status of individuals covered by legal settlement agreements involving PBGC may be disclosed to entities covered by or created under those agreements. New routine use 9 will read: ‘‘Names, social security numbers, last known addresses, dates of birth, and benefit amounts owed may be disclosed to other government agencies under a Memorandum of Understanding or Interagency Agreement in order to locate missing participants.’’ New routine use 10 will read: ‘‘Names, social security numbers, dates of birth and death, name of plan sponsors, plan sponsor EIN/PN may be periodically disclosed to insurance companies where annuities have been purchased by a terminated plan.’’ (9) PBGC Is Proposing To Update and Add Ten Routine Uses to PBGC–12, Personnel Security Investigation Records PBGC’s review of its system of records notices revealed the need to disclose certain information from the PBGC system of records documenting personnel information to other branches and agencies of the Federal Government. PBGC is proposing to update and add ten routine uses to PBGC–12: Personnel Security Investigation Records (last published at 81 FR 63309 (September 14, 2016)), to E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 6250 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 30 / Tuesday, February 13, 2018 / Notices ensure consistency with the Federal Investigative Standards and to promote the efficiency of governmental hiring and investigations associated with hiring. The records in this system may be used to provide investigatory information for determinations concerning whether an individual is, or continues to be, suitable or fit for Government employment or military service; eligible for logical and physical access to federally controlled facilities and information systems; eligible to hold a sensitive position (including, but not limited to, eligibility for access to classified information); fit to perform work for or on behalf of the Government as an employee of a contractor; qualified for Government service; qualified to perform contractual services for the Government; and, loyal to the United States. The system is also used to document such determinations. In conducting a review of the system of records, it was determined that information regarding PBGC vendors may be included in the system. The category of vendor has been added to the category of individuals covered by the system and are included in the system of records’ purpose. PBGC proposes the clarification of the name of an office within a federal agency used as an example in routine use 2. The office charged with investigating the suitability of individuals in this system would be the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB), a component of the Office of Personnel Management. The clarified example in the routine use example will now include, ‘‘National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB).’’ New routine use 4 will read: ‘‘To designated officers and employees of agencies, offices, and other establishments in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government, having a need to evaluate qualifications, suitability, and loyalty to the United States Government and/or a security clearance or access determination.’’ New routine use 5 will read: ‘‘To designated officers and employees of agencies, offices, and other establishments in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government, when such agency, office, or establishment investigates an individual for purposes of granting a security clearance, or for the purpose of making a determination of qualifications, suitability, or loyalty to the United States Government, or access to classified information or restricted areas.’’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:12 Feb 12, 2018 Jkt 244001 New routine use 6 will read: ‘‘To designated officers and employees of agencies, offices, and other establishments in the executive, judicial, or legislative branches of the Federal Government, having the responsibility to grant clearances to make a determination regarding access to classified information or restricted areas, or to evaluate qualifications, suitability, or loyalty to the United States Government, in connection with performance of a service to the Federal Government under a contract or other agreement.’’ New routine use 7 will read: ‘‘To U.S. intelligence agencies for use in intelligence activities.’’ New routine use 8 will read: ‘‘To the appropriate Federal, State, local, tribal, or other public authority responsible for investigating, prosecuting, enforcing, or implementing a statute, rule, regulation, or order where OPM becomes aware of an indication of a violation or potential violation of civil or criminal law or regulation.’’ New routine use 9 will read: ‘‘To an agency, office, or other establishment in the executive, legislative, or judicial branches of the Federal Government, in response to its request, in connection with the hiring or retention of an employee, the issuance of a security clearance, the conducting of a security or suitability investigation of an individual, the classifying of jobs, the letting of a contract, or the issuance of a license, grant, or other benefit by the requesting agency, to the extent that the information is relevant and necessary to the requesting agency’s decision on the matter.’’ New routine use 10 will read: ‘‘To provide information to a congressional office from the record of an individual in response to an inquiry from the congressional office made at the request of that individual. However, to the extent these records may reveal the identity of an individual who has provided information pertaining to the investigation, the investigative file, or the parts thereof, are exempt from release.

PBGC is proposing the addition of a second system manager due to the proposed rescission of PBGC– 24: Participant Debt Collection. The consolidation of the two systems streamlines PBGC processes and eliminates redundancy. Adding the system manager for PBGC–24 ensures that the public has access to the individuals responsible for the collection and maintenance of records in that system. The section of the system of records notice entitled ‘‘System Manager(s) and Address’’ will be amended to included: Chief of Benefits Administration, Office of Benefits Administration, PBGC, 1200 K Street NW, Washington DC 20005. PBGC is proposing the addition of one routine for disclosure to a consumer reporting agency. This routine use is necessary as it allows PBGC to collect claims for money or property. New routine use 5 will read, ‘‘A record from this system may be disclosed to a consumer reporting agency in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).’’ (11) PBGC Is Proposing To Add One Routine Use to PBGC–14, My Plan Administration Account Records PBGC is proposing to add a routine use to PBGC–14: My Plan Administration Account Records (last published at 81 FR 63312 (September 14, 2016)). PBGC is proposing the addition to ensure that the Agency may fulfill its mission of locating and paying benefits to participants or their beneficiaries. New routine use 2 will read: ‘‘Names, addresses and phone numbers of plan sponsors, plan administrators, pension practitioners, actuaries and pension benefit professionals who submit plan information to My PAA may be disclosed to the public in order to ensure the public has access to contact information for those individuals submitting information regarding pension plans and those responsible for the administration of pension plans covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).’’ E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 30 / Tuesday, February 13, 2018 / Notices sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES (12) PBGC Is Proposing To Add Seven Routine Uses to PBGC–17, Office of Inspector General Investigative File System PBGC is proposing to add seven additional routine uses to PBGC–17: Office of Inspector General Investigative File System (last published at 81 FR 63315 (September 14, 2016)). During the review of the systems’ routine uses, it was determined that additional routine uses were necessary in order to ensure that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) continues to operate with efficiency and transparency. In addition, these new routine uses will facilitate the sharing of information between agencies in order to fulfill the mission of the OIG. New routine use 10 will read: ‘‘A record may be disclosed where there is an indication of a violation or a potential violation of law, rule, regulation or order whether civil, criminal, administrative or regulatory in nature, to the appropriate agency, whether federal, state, tribal or local, or to a securities self-regulatory organization, charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, or rule, regulation or order.’’ New routine use 11 will read: ‘‘A record may be disclosed to federal, state, tribal or local authorities in order to obtain information or records relevant to an Office of Inspector General investigation or inquiry.’’ New routine use 12 will read: ‘‘A record may be disclosed to a bar association, state accountancy board, or other federal, state, tribal, or local licensing or oversight authority; or professional association or selfregulatory authority to the extent that it performs similar functions (including the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board) for investigations or possible disciplinary action.’’ New routine use 13 will read: ‘‘A record may be disclosed to inform complainants, victims, and witnesses of the results of an investigation or inquiry.’’ New routine use 14 will read: ‘‘To the Department of Justice for the purpose of obtaining advice on investigatory matters or in order to refer information for the purpose of prosecution.’’ New routine use 15 will read: ‘‘To contractors, interns and experts who have been engaged to assist in an OIG investigation or in the performance of a service related to this system of records and require access to these records for the purpose of assisting the OIG in the efficient administration of its duties.

Concerning storage, the notice has been clarified to reflect that PBGC records may be maintained on back-up tapes, or on the PBGC or a contractorhosted network. Concerning retrievability, all methods of retrieval have been updated and verified. Concerning safeguards, minor grammatical corrections were made, and the entry was updated to reflect current agency policies regarding protection and security of these systems. Concerning retention and disposal, the entry was clarified to reflect that agency practices were in line with guidelines issued by the National Archives and Record Administration. Concerning notification, access and contesting or amending records, administrative changes reflect the current regulations governing the agency. Concerning record source categories, minor administrative changes were made to reflect the correct name of the offices providing records for these systems.

PENSION BENEFIT GUARANTY CORPORATION


Privacy Act of 1974; Systems of Records

AGENCY: Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.

ACTION: Notice of modified systems of records; notice of a rescinded 
system of records; notice of a new system of records.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, the Pension Benefit 
Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) proposes the following changes to its 
system of records notices to: Amend a general routine use, rescind a 
duplicative system of records, establish a new system of records for 
collection of data from the agency website, add or amend routine uses 
in ten systems of records, make clarifying changes to all nineteen 
systems of records notices, and republish all existing systems of 
records notices. The PBGC determined that the proposed changes were 
necessary after conducting the biennial review of its systems of 
records notices.

DATES: Comments are due by March 15, 2018. The revised and additional 
systems of records described herein will become effective 30 days after 
the date of publication, without further notice, unless comments 
results in a contrary determination and a notice is published to that 
effect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

(1) PBGC Is Proposing To Amend One General Routine Use in Its Prefatory 
Statement of General Routine Uses

    PBGC is proposing to amend one general routine use in its Prefatory 
Statement of General Routine Uses. During a routine review of the 
General Routine Uses, PBGC determined that the language contained in 
General Routine Use 1--Law Enforcement should be clarified to reflect 
that information maintained in a PBGC system of records may be 
disclosed to law enforcement investigating the potential or actual 
violation of a statute, regulation, rule or particular program. The 
language will be further amended to clarify that law enforcement 
includes tribal entities charged with law enforcement. The amended 
General Routine Use will read: ``G1. Routine Use--Law Enforcement: A 
record from this system may be disclosed to law enforcement in the 
event the record is connected to a violation or potential violation of 
law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature, and whether 
arising by general statute, regulation, rule, or order issued pursuant 
thereto. Such disclosure may be made to the appropriate agency, whether 
Federal, State, local, or tribal, or other public authority responsible 
for enforcing, investigating or prosecuting such violation or charged 
with enforcing or implementing the statute, or rule, regulation, or 
order issued pursuant thereto, if PBGC determines that the records are 
both relevant and necessary to any enforcement, regulatory, 
investigative or prospective responsibility of the receiving entity.''

(2) PBGC Is Proposing To Rescind PBGC-24, Participant Debt Collection

    Pursuant the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and as part of its 
ongoing improvement, integration and management efforts, PBGC is 
proposing to rescind the following system of records notice: PBGC-24, 
Participant Debt Collection (last published at 81 FR 63321 (September 
14, 2016)).
    With regard to PBGC-24, the Agency will continue to collect and 
maintain records about individuals who may owe a debt to the Agency and 
will rely upon an existing PBGC system of records titled PBGC-13, Debt 
Collection--PBGC (last published at 81 FR 63311 (September 14, 2016)), 
which is also written for the purpose of collecting any and all debts 
that be owed to the PBGC. The primary difference between the two 
systems of records being that PBGC-13 and PBGC-24 have different system 
managers.
    Eliminating this notice will have no adverse impact on individuals; 
rather, its removal will promote the overall streamlining and 
management of PBGC Privacy Act system of records and reduce the 
likelihood of any public misunderstanding rooted in the existence of 
two similar notices. PBGC-13 will be clarified and amended to reflect 
both the existing system manager and the former system manager of PBGC-
24.

(3) PBGC Is Proposing To Establish a New System of Records: PBGC-25, 
PBGC.GOV Comment Management System

    PBGC is proposing to establish a new system of records titled, 
``PBGC-25, PBGC.GOV Comment Management System--PBGC.'' The proposed 
system of records furthers the Agency's commitment to the E-Government 
Act of 2002 by promoting the use of electronic services, specifically, 
providing the public with access to proposed rulemaking and the ability 
to directly comment on those rules or any other area of concern 
directly to the Agency via comment field(s) on the PBGC.gov website. 
The public may also submit supporting materials related to their 
comments or other area of concern. This system of records may contain 
records of data points supplied by the user of the comment field, which 
may include names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, social 
security numbers, customer identification numbers, user names, internet 
protocol (IP) addresses or any other information entered in the comment 
field. In addition, this system will contain comments individuals have 
submitted through Regulations.gov about PBGC. While this will be a new 
system of records, PBGC will continue to respect the privacy of 
individuals using the website and comment field by encouraging users to 
provide the least amount of information necessary to respond to 
rulemaking or initiate contact with the Agency.
    The collection and maintenance of these records is new. Prior to 
PBGC.gov, PBGC did not solicit, receive or collect rulemaking comments 
through its public website.

(4) PBGC Is Proposing To Add Two Routine Uses to PBGC-2, Disbursements

    PBGC is proposing to add two routine uses to PBGC-2, Disbursements 
(last published at 81 FR 63301 (September 14, 2016)).
    PBGC is proposing the addition of routine use 3, which permits the 
disclosure of information in this system to the Office of Personnel 
Management, the Office of Management and Budget, or the Government 
Accountability Office. This addition will facilitate oversight of 
payments made from PBGC to various entities, as well as promote 
transparency and accountability during the payment process. Routine use 
3 will read: ``To the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB), or the Government Accountability Office 
(GAO) when the information is required for program evaluation 
purposes.''
    PBGC is proposing the addition of routine use 4, which permits 
disclosure of information to consumer reporting agencies in order to 
facilitate and collect claims for money or property due to PBGC. New 
routine use 4 will read, ``A record from this system may be disclosed 
to a consumer reporting agency in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).''

(5) PBGC Is Proposing To Add a Routine Use to PBGC-3, Employee Payroll, 
Leave, and Attendance Records

    PBGC is proposing to add a routine use to PBGC-3: Employee Payroll, 
Leave, and Attendance Records (last published at 81 FR 63301 (September 
14, 2016)). This routine use is necessary as it allows PBGC to collect 
claims for money or property. The new routine use will read, ``A record 
from this system may be disclosed to a consumer reporting agency in 
accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).''

[[Page 6249]]

(6) PBGC Is Proposing To Clarify the Types of Plan Information 
Contained in the System, Amend Two Routine Uses and Add a Routine Use 
to PBGC-6, Plan Participant and Beneficiary Data

    PBGC is proposing the following revisions to PBGC-6, Plan 
Participant and Beneficiary Data (last published at 81 FR 63303 
(September 14, 2016)): Clarification of the types of plan information 
contained in the system; amendment of two routine uses; and, addition 
of one new routine use.
    PBGC is proposing the clarification of the name of the type of 
plans records contained in the system of records. Currently, plan 
information is described as ``pension plans.'' PBGC would clarify the 
name of the type of plans to ``retirement plans'' in order to reflect 
the inclusion of plans that do not meet the definition of ``pension 
plans.''
    PBGC is proposing the amendment of routine use 13, which currently 
permits disclosure to government agencies in order to verify payment 
eligibility. After review of the routine use and agency practices, we 
have determined that information needed to verify eligibility to 
receive payment may be held by third parties with whom PBGC has a 
contractual relationship. The amended portion of routine use 13 will 
permit disclosure and read, ``a third party with whom PBGC has a 
contractual relationship.'' This amendment will further the purpose of 
the Agency by ensuring payments are made only to individuals eligible 
to receive such payments.
    PBGC is proposing the amendment of routine use 16, which currently 
permits the disclosure of a beneficiary's name and date of birth to the 
participant. PBGC wishes to disclose additional types of beneficiary 
information to the participant. Amended routine use 16 will read, 
``With the exception of third party social security numbers, all 
beneficiary information contained in the participant file (such as: 
Names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and dates of birth) 
provided by the subject of the record may be disclosed to the subject 
of the record, upon written request to the Disclosure Officer in 
accordance with the Record Access Procedure outlined below.'' Under the 
existing routine use, PBGC withholds all information except the name 
and date of birth of a beneficiary that is contained in participant's 
file, even though it was often the participant who provided the 
beneficiary's personal information (as this information is required 
from the participant when naming their beneficiary). By allowing PBGC 
to disclose all information regarding the beneficiary to the 
participant, except their social security number, the amended routine 
use will ensure that a participant can readily confirm or amend 
information about their beneficiary, while still protecting the 
beneficiary's social security number. In addition, this routine use 
will improve customer service without sacrificing any individuals' 
privacy interests.
    PBGC is proposing the addition of a routine use to PBGC-6. New 
routine use 18 will read, ``A record from this system may be disclosed 
to a consumer reporting agency in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).'' 
This routine use is necessary as it allows the disclosure of 
information to consumer reporting agencies in order to facilitate and 
collect claims for money or property due to PBGC.

(7) PBGC Is Proposing To Add One Routine Use to PBGC-8, Employee 
Relations Files

    PBGC's review of its system of records notices revealed the need to 
be able to disclose certain records from the PBGC system of records 
documenting employee grievances to union representatives. Accordingly, 
PBGC is proposing to add one additional routine use to PBGC-8; Employee 
Relations Files (last published at 81 FR 63304 (September 14, 2016), in 
furtherance of resolving a grievant's complaint and limiting such 
disclosure to the extent that it is relevant to the subject matter 
involved in the union issue or proceeding and if disclosure would be in 
the interest of the subject individual. New routine use 3 will read: 
``A record from this system may be disclosed to a union representative, 
Hearing Examiner or Arbitrator for the purpose of representation or in 
order to conduct a hearing in connection with an employee's grievance 
or appeal.''

(8) PBGC Is Proposing To Amend the Name of the System of Record, Amend 
One Routine Use, Correct the Numbering of Published Routine Uses, and 
Add Two Routine Uses to PBGC-9, Unclaimed Pensions

    PBGC's review of its system of records notices revealed the need to 
limit the disclosure of certain information and permit the disclosure 
of other information from the PBGC system of records containing 
information on unclaimed retirement funds. PBGC is proposing to amend 
the name of the system, amend one routine use, correct the numbering of 
published routine uses and add two routine uses to PBGC-9: Unclaimed 
Pensions (last published at 81 FR 63306 (September 14, 2016)). These 
changes are designed to ensure that the system name adequately reflects 
the information contained therein and to ensure that the Agency may 
fulfill its mission of paying benefits to participants or their 
beneficiaries while still protecting individual privacy rights. The new 
name of the system of record will be PBGC-9: Unclaimed Retirement 
Funds.
    In the last published version of this records notice, there were 
two routine uses number 7. PBGC is proposing to amend the first routine 
use 7 by removing language permitting the disclosure of the last known 
address of participants and beneficiaries. PBGC believes that not 
disclosing this information to the public protects the privacy rights 
of these individuals. Further, the information that will continue to be 
disclosed pursuant to routine use 7 is more than sufficient to make the 
public aware and potentially identify and locate individuals who may be 
owed a benefit payment.
    PBGC also proposes the correction of numbering by revising the 
latter routine use to 8. There are no further changes to this routine 
use and will be republished to read: 8. Names, social security numbers, 
last known addresses, dates of birth and death, employment history, and 
pay status of individuals covered by legal settlement agreements 
involving PBGC may be disclosed to entities covered by or created under 
those agreements.
    New routine use 9 will read: ``Names, social security numbers, last 
known addresses, dates of birth, and benefit amounts owed may be 
disclosed to other government agencies under a Memorandum of 
Understanding or Interagency Agreement in order to locate missing 
participants.''
    New routine use 10 will read: ``Names, social security numbers, 
dates of birth and death, name of plan sponsors, plan sponsor EIN/PN 
may be periodically disclosed to insurance companies where annuities 
have been purchased by a terminated plan.''

(9) PBGC Is Proposing To Update and Add Ten Routine Uses to PBGC-12, 
Personnel Security Investigation Records

    PBGC's review of its system of records notices revealed the need to 
disclose certain information from the PBGC system of records 
documenting personnel information to other branches and agencies of the 
Federal Government. PBGC is proposing to update and add ten routine 
uses to PBGC-12: Personnel Security Investigation Records (last 
published at 81 FR 63309 (September 14, 2016)), to

[[Page 6250]]

ensure consistency with the Federal Investigative Standards and to 
promote the efficiency of governmental hiring and investigations 
associated with hiring. The records in this system may be used to 
provide investigatory information for determinations concerning whether 
an individual is, or continues to be, suitable or fit for Government 
employment or military service; eligible for logical and physical 
access to federally controlled facilities and information systems; 
eligible to hold a sensitive position (including, but not limited to, 
eligibility for access to classified information); fit to perform work 
for or on behalf of the Government as an employee of a contractor; 
qualified for Government service; qualified to perform contractual 
services for the Government; and, loyal to the United States. The 
system is also used to document such determinations. In conducting a 
review of the system of records, it was determined that information 
regarding PBGC vendors may be included in the system. The category of 
vendor has been added to the category of individuals covered by the 
system and are included in the system of records' purpose.
    PBGC proposes the clarification of the name of an office within a 
federal agency used as an example in routine use 2. The office charged 
with investigating the suitability of individuals in this system would 
be the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB), a component of 
the Office of Personnel Management. The clarified example in the 
routine use example will now include, ``National Background 
Investigations Bureau (NBIB).''
    New routine use 4 will read: ``To designated officers and employees 
of agencies, offices, and other establishments in the executive, 
legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government, having a 
need to evaluate qualifications, suitability, and loyalty to the United 
States Government and/or a security clearance or access 
determination.''
    New routine use 5 will read: ``To designated officers and employees 
of agencies, offices, and other establishments in the executive, 
legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government, when such 
agency, office, or establishment investigates an individual for 
purposes of granting a security clearance, or for the purpose of making 
a determination of qualifications, suitability, or loyalty to the 
United States Government, or access to classified information or 
restricted areas.''
    New routine use 6 will read: ``To designated officers and employees 
of agencies, offices, and other establishments in the executive, 
judicial, or legislative branches of the Federal Government, having the 
responsibility to grant clearances to make a determination regarding 
access to classified information or restricted areas, or to evaluate 
qualifications, suitability, or loyalty to the United States 
Government, in connection with performance of a service to the Federal 
Government under a contract or other agreement.''
    New routine use 7 will read: ``To U.S. intelligence agencies for 
use in intelligence activities.''
    New routine use 8 will read: ``To the appropriate Federal, State, 
local, tribal, or other public authority responsible for investigating, 
prosecuting, enforcing, or implementing a statute, rule, regulation, or 
order where OPM becomes aware of an indication of a violation or 
potential violation of civil or criminal law or regulation.''
    New routine use 9 will read: ``To an agency, office, or other 
establishment in the executive, legislative, or judicial branches of 
the Federal Government, in response to its request, in connection with 
the hiring or retention of an employee, the issuance of a security 
clearance, the conducting of a security or suitability investigation of 
an individual, the classifying of jobs, the letting of a contract, or 
the issuance of a license, grant, or other benefit by the requesting 
agency, to the extent that the information is relevant and necessary to 
the requesting agency's decision on the matter.''
    New routine use 10 will read: ``To provide information to a 
congressional office from the record of an individual in response to an 
inquiry from the congressional office made at the request of that 
individual. However, to the extent these records may reveal the 
identity of an individual who has provided information pertaining to 
the investigation, the investigative file, or the parts thereof, are 
exempt from release. Further, requests for OPM records contained in 
this system will be referred to OPM.''
    New routine use 11 will read: ``To disclose information to 
contractors, experts, consultants, or students performing or working on 
a contract, service, or job for the PBGC.''
    New routine use 12 will read: ``To disclose results of 
investigations or individuals records to agencies, such as the 
Department of Labor, providing adjudicative support services to PBGC.''
    And, new routine use 13 will read: ``To provide criminal history 
record information to the FBI, to help ensure the accuracy and 
completeness of FBI and PBGC records.''

(10) PBGC Is Proposing To Amend the System Manager and Add One Routine 
Use to PBGC-13, Debt Collection

    PBGC is proposing to amend the system manager and add a routine use 
to PBGC-13: Debt Collection (last published at 81 FR 63311 (September 
14, 2016)). PBGC is proposing the addition of a second system manager 
due to the proposed rescission of PBGC-24: Participant Debt Collection. 
The consolidation of the two systems streamlines PBGC processes and 
eliminates redundancy. Adding the system manager for PBGC-24 ensures 
that the public has access to the individuals responsible for the 
collection and maintenance of records in that system.
    The section of the system of records notice entitled ``System 
Manager(s) and Address'' will be amended to included: Chief of Benefits 
Administration, Office of Benefits Administration, PBGC, 1200 K Street 
NW, Washington DC 20005.
    PBGC is proposing the addition of one routine for disclosure to a 
consumer reporting agency. This routine use is necessary as it allows 
PBGC to collect claims for money or property. New routine use 5 will 
read, ``A record from this system may be disclosed to a consumer 
reporting agency in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).''

(11) PBGC Is Proposing To Add One Routine Use to PBGC-14, My Plan 
Administration Account Records

    PBGC is proposing to add a routine use to PBGC-14: My Plan 
Administration Account Records (last published at 81 FR 63312 
(September 14, 2016)). PBGC is proposing the addition to ensure that 
the Agency may fulfill its mission of locating and paying benefits to 
participants or their beneficiaries. New routine use 2 will read: 
``Names, addresses and phone numbers of plan sponsors, plan 
administrators, pension practitioners, actuaries and pension benefit 
professionals who submit plan information to My PAA may be disclosed to 
the public in order to ensure the public has access to contact 
information for those individuals submitting information regarding 
pension plans and those responsible for the administration of pension 
plans covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 
(ERISA).''

(12) PBGC Is Proposing To Add Seven Routine Uses to PBGC-17, Office of 
Inspector General Investigative File System

    PBGC is proposing to add seven additional routine uses to PBGC-17: 
Office of Inspector General Investigative File System (last published 
at 81 FR 63315 (September 14, 2016)). During the review of the systems' 
routine uses, it was determined that additional routine uses were 
necessary in order to ensure that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) 
continues to operate with efficiency and transparency. In addition, 
these new routine uses will facilitate the sharing of information 
between agencies in order to fulfill the mission of the OIG.
    New routine use 10 will read: ``A record may be disclosed where 
there is an indication of a violation or a potential violation of law, 
rule, regulation or order whether civil, criminal, administrative or 
regulatory in nature, to the appropriate agency, whether federal, 
state, tribal or local, or to a securities self-regulatory 
organization, charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, or 
rule, regulation or order.''
    New routine use 11 will read: ``A record may be disclosed to 
federal, state, tribal or local authorities in order to obtain 
information or records relevant to an Office of Inspector General 
investigation or inquiry.''
    New routine use 12 will read: ``A record may be disclosed to a bar 
association, state accountancy board, or other federal, state, tribal, 
or local licensing or oversight authority; or professional association 
or self-regulatory authority to the extent that it performs similar 
functions (including the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board) for 
investigations or possible disciplinary action.''
    New routine use 13 will read: ``A record may be disclosed to inform 
complainants, victims, and witnesses of the results of an investigation 
or inquiry.''
    New routine use 14 will read: ``To the Department of Justice for 
the purpose of obtaining advice on investigatory matters or in order to 
refer information for the purpose of prosecution.''
    New routine use 15 will read: ``To contractors, interns and experts 
who have been engaged to assist in an OIG investigation or in the 
performance of a service related to this system of records and require 
access to these records for the purpose of assisting the OIG in the 
efficient administration of its duties. All recipients of these records 
shall be required to comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 
1974, as amended.''
    New routine use 16 will read: ``To the public when the matter under 
investigation has become public knowledge, or when the Inspector 
General determines that such disclosure is necessary to preserve 
confidence in the integrity of the OIG investigative process, to 
demonstrate the accountability of PBGC employees, or other individuals 
covered by this system, or when there exists a legitimate public 
interest, unless the Inspector General has determined that disclosure 
of specific information would constitute an unwarranted invasion of 
personal privacy.''
    And, new routine use 17 will read: ``A record from this system may 
be disclosed to a consumer reporting agency in accordance with 31 
U.S.C. 3711(e).''

(13) PBGC Is Proposing To Amend the Category of Records and Add a 
Routine Use to PBGC-19, Office of General Counsel Case Management 
System

    PBGC is proposing to amend the category of records contained in the 
system and add an additional routine use to PBGC-19: Office of General 
Counsel Case Management System (last published at 81 FR 63316 
(September 14, 2016)). During the review of the system of records, it 
was determined that additional categories of records exist in this 
system. PBGC proposes the amendment of the categories of records to 
include the following records: Draft and final versions of notes, 
disclosures and determinations made in accordance with the Freedom of 
Information Act and the Privacy Act of 1974; records and information 
obtained from other federal, state, local and tribal agencies and 
departments, including, but not limited to: Office of Personnel 
Management, Social Security Administration, Department of Treasury and 
Department of Justice; ethics inquiries; personnel records; financial 
records; and, individual tax returns.
    PBGC proposes the addition of a new routine use permitting the 
disclosure of information to a consumer reporting agency in order to 
collect a claim due to the agency. New routine use 11 will read, ``A 
record from this system may be disclosed to a consumer reporting agency 
in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3711(e).''

(14) PBGC Is Proposing To Make Clarifying Changes to Existing Systems 
of Records

    PBGC is proposing to correct and update the following sections in 
existing system of records notices: Security Classification; System 
Location; Categories of Individuals Covered by the System; Categories 
of Records in the System; Authority for Maintenance of the System; 
Purpose(s); Routine Uses of Records Maintained in the System, Including 
Categories of Users and the Purposes of Such Uses; Storage; 
Retrievability; Safeguards; Retention and Disposal; System Manager(s)

81 FR 63320 (September 14, 2016)). These corrections and amendments 
will make the system of records notices more accurate and easier to 
understand individually, and collectively.

(15) PBGC Is Proposing To Republish All Existing System of Records 
Notices

    PBGC annually reviews all system of records notices. There have 
been minor corrections, changes in system owners due to internal agency 
realignments, and administrative changes for consistency in the 
existing system of records notices. As such, PBGC proposes to republish 
all existing

[[Page 6252]]

system of records notices in order to clarify and correct information 
since the last publication.
    PBGC proposes to clarify references to law enforcement entities 
throughout the document to include tribal law enforcement agencies or 
departments.
    Concerning security classification, all systems have been labeled 
as unclassified. Concerning the safeguarding and disposal of all 
systems of records, PBGC follows Federal Law and Regulations, the 
National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) guidelines and best 
practices, as appropriate and current notices reflect those guidelines. 
Concerning the system location, the name of the agency was previously 
abbreviated, and the corrected location reflects a more accurate 
location of PBGC systems. Concerning authority for maintenance, all 
citations have been corrected and reflect the laws that govern the 
systems and collection of information for those systems. Concerning the 
routine uses for the systems, the numbering of the routine uses was 
corrected to reflect the proper numbering of all routine uses. 
Concerning the policies and practices for storing, retrieving, 
accessing, retaining and disposing of records, the notices reflect the 
current practices of the agency in keeping with the E-Government Act of 
2002 and current practices of the agency in regard to these systems. 
Concerning storage, the notice has been clarified to reflect that PBGC 
records may be maintained on back-up tapes, or on the PBGC or a 
contractor-hosted network. Concerning retrievability, all methods of 
retrieval have been updated and verified. Concerning safeguards, minor 
grammatical corrections were made, and the entry was updated to reflect 
current agency policies regarding protection and security of these 
systems. Concerning retention and disposal, the entry was clarified to 
reflect that agency practices were in line with guidelines issued by 
the National Archives and Record Administration. Concerning 
notification, access and contesting or amending records, administrative 
changes reflect the current regulations governing the agency. 
Concerning record source categories, minor administrative changes were 
made to reflect the correct name of the offices providing records for 
these systems.
    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), interested persons are invited to 
submit written comments on the proposal of these systems of records. A 
report on the proposed systems has been sent to Congress and the Office 
of Management and Budget for their evaluation.
    For the convenience of the public, PBGC's Prefatory Statement of 
General Routine Uses, the amended systems of records, and the new 
systems of records are published in full below with changes italicized.

    Issued in Washington, DC.
W. Thomas Reeder,
Director, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.

Prefatory Statement of General Routine Uses

    The following routine uses are incorporated by reference into 
various systems of records, as set forth below.
    G1. Routine Use--Law Enforcement: A record from this system may be 
disclosed to law enforcement in the event the record is connected to a 
violation or potential violation of law, whether civil, criminal or 
regulatory in nature, and whether arising by general statute, 
regulation, rule, or order issued pursuant thereto. Such disclosure may 
be made to the appropriate agency, whether federal, state, local, or 
tribal, or other public authority responsible for enforcing, 
investigating or prosecuting such violation or charged with enforcing 
or implementing the statute, or rule, regulation, or order issued 
pursuant thereto, if PBGC determines that the records are both relevant 
and necessary to any enforcement, regulatory, investigative or 
prospective responsibility of the receiving entity.
    G2. Routine Use--Disclosure When Requesting Information: A record 
from this system of records may be disclosed to a federal, state, 
tribal or local agency or to another public or private source 
maintaining civil, criminal, or other relevant enforcement information 
or other pertinent information if, and to the extent necessary, to 
obtain information relevant to a PBGC decision concerning the hiring or 
retention of an employee, the retention of a security clearance, or the 
letting of a contract.
    G3. Routine Use--Disclosure of Existence of Record Information: 
With the approval of the Director, Human Resources Department (or his 
or her designee), the fact that this system of records includes 
information relevant to a federal agency's decision in connection with 
the hiring or retention of an employee, the retention of a security 
clearance, the letting of a contract, or the issuance of a license, 
grant, or other benefit may be disclosed to that federal agency.
    G4. Routine Use--Disclosure in Litigation: A record from this 
system of records may be disclosed in a proceeding before a court or 
other adjudicative body in which PBGC, an employee of PBGC in his or 
her official capacity, an employee of PBGC in his or her individual 
capacity whom PBGC (or the Department of Justice (DOJ)) has agreed to 
represent is a party, or the United States or any other federal agency 
is a party and PBGC determines that it has an interest in the 
proceeding, and if PBGC determines that the record is relevant to the 
proceeding and that the use is compatible with the purpose for which 
PBGC collected the information.
    G5. Routine Use--Disclosure to DOJ in Litigation: When PBGC, an 
employee of PBGC in his or her official capacity, or an employee of 
PBGC in his or her individual capacity whom PBGC (or DOJ) has agreed to 
represent is a party to a proceeding before a court or other 
adjudicative body, or the United States or any other federal agency is 
a party and PBGC determines that it has an interest in the proceeding, 
a record from this system of records may be disclosed to DOJ if PBGC is 
consulting with DOJ regarding the proceeding or has decided that DOJ 
will represent PBGC, or its interest, in the proceeding and PBGC 
determines that the record is relevant to the proceeding and that the 
use is compatible with the purpose for which PBGC collected the 
information.
    G6. Routine Use--Disclosure to the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB): A record from this system of records may be disclosed to OMB in 
connection with the review of private relief legislation as set forth 
in OMB Circular No. A-19 at any stage of the legislative coordination

labor organization to properly perform its duties as the collective 
bargaining representative of PBGC employees in the bargaining unit.
    G9. Routine Use--Disclosure in Response to a Breach: A record from 
this system of records may be disclosed to appropriate agencies, 
entities, and persons when (1) PBGC suspects or has confirmed that 
there has been a breach of the system of records; (2) PBGC has 
determined that as a result of the suspected or confirmed breach there
