Amendment of such records could also impose a highly impracticable administrative burden by requiring investigations to be continuously reinvestigated. (6) Exemption (k)(7). Personnel investigations and vetting records may contain evaluation material used to determine potential for promotion in the armed services. In some cases, such records may contain information pertaining to the identity of a source who furnished information to the Government under an express promise that the source’s identity would be held in confidence (or prior to the effective date of the Privacy Act, under an implied promise). Application of exemption (k)(7) for such records may be necessary because access to, amendment of, or release of the accounting of disclosures of such records could identify these confidential sources who might not have otherwise come forward to assist the Government, hinder the Government’s ability to obtain information from future confidential sources, and result in an unwarranted invasion of the privacy of others. Amendment of such records could also impose a highly impracticable administrative burden by requiring investigations to be continuously reinvestigated. (B) Subsections (d)(3) and (4). These subsections are inapplicable to the extent an exemption is claimed from (d)(1) and (2). Moreover, applying the amendment appeal procedures toward background investigation and vetting records could impose a highly impracticable administrative burden by requiring investigations to be continuously reinvestigated. (C) Subsection (e)(1). In the collection of information for authorized vetting purposes, it is not always possible to conclusively determine the relevance and necessity of particular information in the early stages of the investigation or adjudication. In some instances, it will be only after the collected information is evaluated in light of other information that its relevance and necessity for effective investigation and adjudication can be assessed. Collection of such information permits more informed decision-making by the Department when making required suitability, eligibility, fitness, and credentialing determinations. Accordingly, application of exemptions (k)(1), (k)(2), (k)(3), (k)(5), (k)(6), and (k)(7) may be necessary. (iv) Exempt records from other systems. In addition, in the course of VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:09 Oct 16, 2018 Jkt 247001 carrying out personnel vetting, including records checks for continuous vetting, exempt records from other systems of records may in turn become part of the records maintained in this system. To the extent that copies of exempt records from those other systems of records are maintained into this system, the DoD claims the same exemptions for the records from those other systems that are entered into this system, as claimed for the original primary system of which they are a part.

Background, Purpose and Legal Basis On April 12, 2017, we published a notice in the Federal Register entitled, ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ announcing a temporary deviation from the regulations, with request for comments (see 82 FR 17562). This temporary deviation commenced at 8 a.m. on April 24, 2017, and concluded at 7:59 a.m. on October 21, 2017. The purpose of the deviation was to test the newly installed remote operation system of the DELAIR Memorial Railroad Bridge across the Delaware River, mile 104.6, at Pennsauken Township, NJ, owned and operated by Conrail Shared Assets. The installation of the remote operation system did not change the operational schedule of the bridge. On June 30, 2017, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ (see 82 FR 29800). This proposed regulation will allow the bridge to be remotely operated from the Conrail South Jersey dispatch center in Mount Laurel, NJ, instead of being operated by an on-site bridge tender. This proposed regulation will not change the operating schedule of the bridge. The original comment period closed on August 18, 2017. During the initial test deviation performed from 8 a.m. on April 24, 2017, through 7:59 a.m. on October 21, 2017, the bridge owner identified deficiencies in the remote operation center procedures, bridge to vessel communications, and equipment redundancy. Comments concerning these deficiencies were submitted to the docket and provided to the Coast Guard and bridge owner by representatives from the Mariners’ Advisory Committee for the Bay and River Delaware. On October 18, 2017, we published a notice in the Federal Register entitled, ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ announcing a second temporary deviation from the regulations, with request for comments (see 82 FR 48419). This temporary deviation commenced at 8 a.m. on October 21, 2017, and concluded at 7:59 a.m. on April 19, 2018. This notice included a request for comments and related material to reach the Coast Guard on or before January 15, 2018. On December 6, 2017, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking; reopening of comment period; entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ in the Federal Register (see 82 FR E:\FR\FM\17OCR1.SGM 17OCR1 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES 52320 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 201 / Wednesday, October 17, 2018 / Rules and Regulations 57561).

This notice included a request for comments and related material to reach the Coast Guard on or before March 2, 2018. The Coast Guard reviewed 26 comments posted to the docket and six reports with supporting documentation submitted by the bridge owner during the initial and second temporary deviations concerning the remote operation system of the DELAIR Memorial Railroad Bridge. Through this review, the Coast Guard found that further testing and evaluation of the remote operation system of the drawbridge was necessary before making a decision on the proposed regulation. On April 26, 2018, we published a notice in the Federal Register entitled, ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ announcing a third temporary deviation from the regulations, with request for comments (see 83 FR 18226). This temporary deviation commenced at 8 a.m. on April 19, 2018, and is scheduled to conclude at 7:59 a.m. on October 16, 2018. This notice included a request for comments and related material to reach the Coast Guard on or before August 17, 2018. On May 4, 2018, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking; reopening comment period; entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ in the Federal Register (see 83 FR 19659). This notice included a request for comments and related material to reach the Coast Guard on or before August 17, 2018. During the third temporary deviation, the following changes were implemented: (1) The on-site bridge tender was removed from the bridge, (2) qualified personnel would return and operate the bridge within 60 minutes if the remote operation system is VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:09 Oct 16, 2018 Jkt 247001 considered in a failed condition, and (3) comments concerning the utility and value of the automated identification system (AIS) were requested. The Coast Guard received no comments posted to the docket during the third temporary deviation; however, the Coast Guard did receive two reports with supporting documentation submitted by the bridge owner. The Coast Guard is conducting an evaluation of the proposed rulemaking and has decided to publish a temporary deviation to allow the DELAIR Memorial Railroad Bridge across the Delaware River, mile 104.6, at Pennsauken Township, NJ, to continue to be remotely operated from the Conrail South Jersey dispatch center in Mount Laurel, NJ, instead of being operated by an on-site bridge tender, to allow sufficient time for the evaluation to be completed. The operating schedule published in 33 CFR 117.716 will not change with the remote operation of the bridge. II. Temporary Deviation From Regulations The operating schedule is published in 33 CFR 117.716. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will be remotely operated from the Conrail South Jersey dispatch center in Mount Laurel, NJ, instead of being operated by an on-site bridge tender. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating methods immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: October 12, 2018. Hal R. Pitts, Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

NJ, owned and operated by Conrail Shared Assets. The installation of 
the remote operation system did not change the operational schedule of 
the bridge.
    On June 30, 2017, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking
