Background In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of Transportation (DOT)/Office of the Secretary of Transportation (OST) proposes to rescind the current system of records notices for DOT/RITA–012 and DOT/FHWA–221, and issue a DOT system of records titled, ‘‘DOT/ALL–27 Training Programs.’’ The Department of Transportation provides training courses to its employees, contractors, and others. The Department wishes to create a new system of records for training program registration and participation information, including information pertaining to training course participants, instructors and course developers, and others involved in training course creation, management, and delivery. The Department will use this information to monitor and manage registration in training courses, track and record participation and completion in DOT training courses, schedule courses, assess the effectiveness of training, identify training trends and needs, and schedule training classes and programs. This system of records excludes records associated with training provided by entities other than DOT and training records covered by the Office of Personnel Management’s Government-wide System of Records Notice, OPM/GOVT–1, ‘‘General Personnel Records.’’ Because DOTprovided training records will be covered by this Department-wide notice, individual notices covering particular DOT offices are not necessary; therefore, this notice also rescinds DOT/RITA– 012, ‘‘TSI Online Catalog and Learning Management System’’ and DOT/FHWA– 221, ‘‘National Highway Institute website (NHIW) and Course Management and Tracking System (CMTS)’’. The records covered by DOT/ RITA–012 and DOT/FHWA–221 will be managed according to the new DOT/ ALL–27. The routine uses are compatible with the purposes for which the information was collected. Individuals whose personally identifiable information (PII) is in this system of records have provided it to DOT to enable DOT to E:\FR\FM\27NON1.SGM 27NON1
