[Docket No. DOT-OST-2018-0215]
Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal
Aviation Administration, (DOT/FAA) 833 Quarters Management Information
System (QMIS) System of Records
AGENCY: Office of the Departmental Chief Information Officer, Office of
the Secretary of Transportation, DOT.
ACTION: Rescindment of a System of Records Notice.
SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of
Transportation is proposing to retire a Department of Transportation
system of records titled, `Department of Transportation/Federal
Aviation Administration (DOT/FAA) 833 Quarters Management Information
System (QMIS) System of Records,' which covered employees occupying FAA
owned or leased housing. The FAA uses the DOI iQMS to support business
activities formerly managed in QMIS. See (https://www.doi.gov/sites/doi.gov/files/uploads/iqmis_pia_final_06.13.2018.pdf). iQMIS is not a
system of records because records cannot be retrieved by an
individual's name or other unique identifier. Users retrieve records by
housing installation name and housing unit number. Rent collected from
the employee/tenant through payroll deduction actions are processed
through the DOI's Federal
Personnel and Payroll System (FPPS) which is a federal shared service
system. DOT records in FPPS are maintained under the DOT/ALL 19--
Federal Personnel and Payroll System (FPPS)--73 FR 66285--November 7,
DATES: The FAA stopped operating the QMIS system in 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974,
5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of Transportation (DOT)/Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) proposes to retire DOT system of records titled,
``Department of Transportation/Federal Aviation Administration (DOT/
FAA) 833 Quarters Management Information System.'' Covered individuals
in the system of records were; employees occupying FAA owned or leased
housing and employees and agencies that lease FAA housing in Alaska.
Records were used to establish regional rental rates for quarters;
maintain status of housing; and maintain up-to-date list of persons.
Additionally, records were used to establish and terminate payroll
deductions for collection of housing occupying FAA units rent through
request to the appropriate payroll office. Records for this system were
destroyed in accordance with GRS 15, Housing Records. Records from the
FAA's QMIS were not transferred to DOI. Eliminating this system of
records notice will have no adverse impact on individuals, but will
promote the overall streamlining and management of DOT Privacy Act
systems of records.
System Name and Number: Department of Transportation (DOT/FAA) 833
Quarters Management Information System.
History: The full notice was published in the Federal Register on
April 11, 2000 (65 FR 19525).
Issued in Washington, DC, on December 20, 2018.

Departmental Chief Privacy Officer.
