This system has been modified in an effort to align with other DHS and government-wide System of Records Notices (SORN) and to prevent duplication.

Cantor, (202) 343– Jkt 247001 PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1717, Privacy@hq.dhs.gov, Acting Chief Privacy Officer, Privacy Office, Department of Homeland Security, Washington, DC 20528–0655. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The DHS Administrative Grievance Records System is a system of records relating to grievances filed by DHS employees under the Administrative Grievance System or under a negotiated grievance procedure. The system contains all documents related to each grievance in the central personnel or administrative office in DHS Headquarters or of the component, or its field offices, where the grievance originated. This system of records will create greater consistency across the Department in the category of individuals, category of records, and routine uses of administrative grievance records. Changes to the system of records include name and scope of system of records, categories of covered individuals, categories of covered records, routine uses, and the schedule for retention and disposal. With respect to the last category, a change has been made to establish that all of the Department’s grievance records are to be disposed of no less than four (4) years but less than seven (7) after the closing of a case. DHS is modifying and reissuing a current DHS system of records titled, ‘‘DHS/ALL–018 Grievances, Appeals, and Disciplinary Action Records System of Records.’’ The system of records is now renamed ‘‘DHS/ALL–018 Administrative Grievance Records.’’ This system of records allows DHS to collect, maintain, and store administrative grievance information related to grievances filed by current and former DHS personnel. The records are used by the Department to resolve employee concerns about working conditions, the administration of collective bargaining agreements, employee/supervisor relations, work processes, or other similar issues. The name and scope of this modified system of records has been changed. Further, this system of records has been modified in an effort to not duplicate other DHS and government-wide system of records. This SORN no longer covers records of disciplinary actions or appeals, which could be covered by other SORNs depending on the type of inquiry, action, or appeal (e.g., DHS/ ALL–020 Department of Homeland Security Internal Affairs, OPM/GOVT–1 General Personnel Records; OPM/ GOVT–3 Records of Adverse Actions, Performance Based Reduction in Grade and Removal Actions, and Termination E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1
