SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PDPDCS contains records on individuals who are recipients of funding (scholars 1) from grants awarded to institutions of higher education (IHEs) and other eligible entities (grantees) by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS), Office of Special Education Programs’ (OSEP) Personnel Development to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities Program (Personnel Development Program), the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), Office of Indian Education’s (OIE) Professional Development discretionary grant program, and the OSERS, Rehabilitation Services Administration’s (RSA) Rehabilitation Long-Term Training (RLTT) discretionary grant program. The PDPDCS allows the Department to fulfill its responsibility for ensuring grantee and scholar compliance with program requirements. The system also affords registered Department officials read-only access to scholar records to monitor compliance and respond to inquiries. Through the affected programs, IHEs and other eligible entities provide Department funds to individuals who agree to perform a service obligation. Scholars who do not satisfy their service obligation or other applicable program requirements must repay all or a part of the funding received in accordance with program regulations. The modified system of records announced in this notice is required to track scholars’ enrollment, employment, and fulfillment of the terms of their service obligations. The PDPDCS system of records is being modified to include records on 1 The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) refer to individuals receiving OSEP and RSA grant funds, respectively, as ‘‘scholars.’’ The Office of Indian Education (OIE) refers to individuals receiving OIE grant funds as ‘‘participants.’’ For purposes of this Notice of a Modified System of Records and this Rescindment of a System of Records Notice, the term ‘‘scholars’’ is used to describe individuals receiving grant funds from OSEP, RSA, or OIE. PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 scholars from grants awarded to IHEs and other eligible entities by OESE, OIE’s Professional Development, and OSERS, RSA’s RLTT discretionary grant programs. As described below, RSA will adopt the PDPDCS to collect data on its training programs. There is no existing system of records for the RSA to track the progress toward completion of a scholar’s service obligation. The Department is modifying the section entitled ‘‘SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER’’ from ‘‘Special Education— Individual Reporting on Regulatory Compliance Related to the Personnel Development Program’s Service Obligation and the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA)’’ (18–16–04) to ‘‘Personnel Development Program Data Collection System (PDPDCS)’’ (18–16–04). The Department is modifying the section entitled ‘‘SECURITY CLASSIFICATION’’ to indicate that the system is unclassified. The Department is modifying the section entitled ‘‘SYSTEM LOCATION(S)’’ to reflect the current names and addresses of the contractor and subcontractor who maintain the records in the system. The Department is modifying the section entitled ‘‘SYSTEM MANAGER(S)’’ to update the title, business address, and contact information of the Department official in Research to Practice Division, OSEP, OSERS, who will serve as the system manager. The Department is modifying the sections entitled ‘‘AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM,’’ ‘‘PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM,’’ ‘‘CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM,’’ ‘‘CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM,’’ ‘‘RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES,’’ and ‘‘POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS’’ to account for the OIE and RSA records being integrated into the PDPDCS system, in addition to the previously maintained OSEP records. The section entitled ‘‘PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM’’ is further being updated to broaden the purposes to include additional purposes of serving as a resource for program improvement and grant monitoring and, informing program and budgetary planning. Additionally, the Department is modifying the section entitled ‘‘CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM’’ to specify that the record on the number of years a scholar needs to work to satisfy the service obligation must be ‘‘in eligible employment;’’ the Department may ask questions to IHEs, as well as scholars, about topics related E:\FR\FM\10JYN1.SGM 10JYN1 jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 132 / Wednesday, July 10, 2019 / Notices to program performance measures; program performance measures may include certification status; and, the Department’s contractor will maintain periodic back-ups of records on a webbased data server that collects data on scholars from grantees, scholars, and their employers. The Department is also modifying the section entitled ‘‘RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES’’ to update the references to the contractor and subcontractor who implement the web-based data collection system and to clarify that record source categories also may include persons or entities who provide data to the Department under the routine uses set forth in the notice. Additionally, the Department is modifying this section to remove language requiring IHEs and other eligible entities to provide information on scholars who they determine will not fulfill their service obligations because it is the Department’s ultimate responsibility to make this determination and this system of records will generate sufficient information for the Department to do so. Finally, the Department is modifying this section to update the name and location of the Department’s accounts receivable group to ‘‘Accounts Receivables and Bank Management Group’’ and the ‘‘Office of Finance and Operations,’’ respectively. The Department is also modifying the section entitled ‘‘POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS’’ to update references to the Department’s contractor and subcontractor; to indicate that a campus and building security system protects hard copy records; and, to explain that the Department’s subcontractor maintains the electronic records on its secure server. The Department is modifying routine use (1) entitled ‘‘Program Purposes’’ to account for the OIE and RSA records being integrated into the PDPDCS system; and, to expand routine use (1)(b) to allow for disclosures to grantees for monitoring, enforcement, or technical assistance related to scholar employment. The Department is modifying routine use (2) entitled ‘‘Disclosure in the Course of Responding to Breach of Data’’ to permit the Department to disclose records from this system of records in response to a suspected or confirmed breach of the system of records; and, to explain that such disclosures are limited to circumstances where the Department determines that as a result of the suspected or confirmed breach, there is a risk of harm to individuals, the Department (including VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Jul 09, 2019 Jkt 247001 its information systems, programs, and operations), the Federal Government, or national security. The Department is modifying routine use (3) entitled ‘‘Contract Disclosure’’ to remove language that referenced imposing safeguard requirements on the contractor ‘‘before entering into’’ the contract and that were required under subsection (m) of the Privacy Act. The modified language clarifies that the Department will require, as part of applicable Department contracts, contractors to whom disclosures are made under this routine use to agree to establish and maintain safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of the disclosed records. The Department is removing routine use (4) entitled ‘‘Disclosure for Use by Other Law Enforcement Agencies’’ because the system of records is not used in a law enforcement capacity. The Department is modifying newly renumbered routine use (5) entitled ‘‘Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Disclosure’’ to insert the word ‘‘person’’ in place of the word ‘‘individual,’’ to avoid any public confusion that may have been caused by the Department’s prior use of the word ‘‘individual’’ given that this term is defined in the Privacy Act and to clarify that references to ‘‘litigation’’ cover both judicial or administrative litigation. The Department modified newly renumbered routine use (9) entitled ‘‘Research Disclosure’’ to remove language that referenced Privacy Act safeguards and to clarify that researchers to whom disclosures are made will be required to agree to establish and maintain safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of the disclosed records. Pursuant to the requirements in Office of Management and Budget Memorandum M–17–12 entitled ‘‘Preparing for and Responding to a Breach of Personally Identifiable Information,’’ the Department added routine use (10) entitled ‘‘Disclosure in Assisting Another Agency in Responding to a Breach of Data’’ in order to permit the Department to disclose records from this system of records in the course of assisting another Federal agency or entity in responding to a breach of data. The Department is modifying the section entitled ‘‘ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS’’ to specify which Department personnel have access to the system to monitor system improvements and upgrades; to specify a limited number of contractor and subcontractor personnel who have administrative rights, including read PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32891 and write access, to the system; and, to explain that the system is maintained in accordance with applicable National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards. The Department is modifying the sections entitled ‘‘RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES,’’ ‘‘CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES,’’ and ‘‘NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES’’ to define and discuss the ‘‘necessary particulars’’ needed to access, contest, or be notified of a record. Finally, the Department is adding a section entitled ‘‘HISTORY’’ to comply with the requirements in Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A–108. In addition, the ‘‘Indian Education— Individual Reporting on Regulatory Compliance Related to the Indian Education Professional Development program’s Service Obligation and the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA)’’ (18–14–05) system of records was first published in the Federal Register on January 25, 2011 (76 FR 4334–4338); and, contains records on individuals who are recipients of financial assistance from grants awarded by OESE, OIE’s Professional Development program. The Department is rescinding this system of records, with plans for the system’s functions and records to be integrated into the PDPDCS.

DISCLOSURE TO CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCIES: The Department may disclose to a consumer reporting agency information regarding a claim by the Department that the head of the Department has determined to be valid and overdue. Such information is limited to—(1) the name, address, taxpayer identification number, and other information necessary to establish the identity of the individual responsible for the claim; (2) the amount, status, and history of the claim; and (3) the program under which the claim arose. The Department may disclose the information specified in this paragraph under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(12) and the procedures contained in 31 U.S.C. 3711(e). A consumer reporting agency to which these disclosures may be made is defined in 31 U.S.C. 3701(a)(3). jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS: Westat, the Department’s subcontractor through the AnLar contract, maintains hard copy records of information about OSEP, OIE and RSA scholars in locked file cabinets that are located within locked offices protected by a campus and building security system; and, maintains electronic records with information about OSEP, OIE, and RSA scholars on its secure server. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Jul 09, 2019 Jkt 247001 POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETRIEVAL OF RECORDS: Records in this system are indexed by a unique number assigned by the PDPDCS to each individual. POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF RECORDS: These records will be maintained and disposed of in accordance with the records retention and disposition authority approved by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Until NARA approves a retention and disposition schedule for these records, the Department will not destroy or delete any records. ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS: Access to the records is limited to authorized personnel only. All physical access to the Department’s site, and to the sites of the Department’s contractor and subcontractor, where this system of records is maintained, is controlled and monitored by security personnel. The computer system employed by the Department offers a high degree of resistance to tampering and circumvention. This security system limits data access to Department and contract staff on a ‘‘need to know’’ basis, and controls individual users’ ability to access and alter records within the system. Only Contracting Officer Representatives (CORs) assigned to the PDPDCS contract by the Department have ‘‘read only’’ access to the PDPDCS to monitor the improvements and upgrades to the system. A limited number of contractor and subcontractor personnel have administrative rights, including read and write access, to the system. The contractor and subcontractor established secure procedures at their sites to ensure confidentiality of data. Their systems are required to ensure that information identifying individuals is in files physically separated from other research data. The contractor and subcontractor will maintain security of the complete set of all master data files and documentation. Access to individually identifying data is strictly controlled. At each site all hard copy data is kept in locked file cabinets during nonworking hours, and work on hard copy data will take place in a single room, except for data entry. Physical security of electronic data is also maintained. Security features that protect electronic project data include: Password-protected accounts that authorize users to access only specific network directories and network software on the contractor’s and subcontractor’s systems; and user rights PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and directory and file attributes that limit those who can access particular directories and files and determine how they can edit them. All security for the system is maintained in accordance with Moderate data sensitivity controls as defined in National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800–53 Revision 4, ‘‘Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations.’’ RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES: If you wish to gain access to your record in the system of records, contact the system manager at the address listed above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PDPDCS contains records on individuals 
who are recipients of funding (scholars \1\) from grants awarded to 
institutions of higher education (IHEs) and other eligible entities 
(grantees) by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative 
Services (OSERS), Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP) 
Personnel Development to Improve Services and Results for Children with 
Disabilities Program (Personnel Development Program), the Office of 
Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), Office of Indian Education's 
(OIE) Professional Development discretionary grant program, and the 
OSERS, Rehabilitation Services Administration's (RSA) Rehabilitation 
Long-Term Training (RLTT) discretionary grant program.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and the 
Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) refer to individuals 
receiving OSEP and RSA grant funds, respectively, as ``scholars.'' 
The Office of Indian Education (OIE) refers to individuals receiving 
OIE grant funds as ``participants.'' For purposes of this Notice of 
a Modified System of Records and this Rescindment of a System of 
Records Notice, the term ``scholars'' is used to describe 
individuals receiving grant funds from OSEP, RSA, or OIE.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The PDPDCS allows the Department to fulfill its responsibility for 
ensuring grantee and scholar compliance with program requirements. The 
system also affords registered Department officials read-only access to 
scholar records to monitor compliance and respond to inquiries.
    Through the affected programs, IHEs and other eligible entities 
provide Department funds to individuals who agree to perform a service 
obligation. Scholars who do not satisfy their service obligation or 
other applicable program requirements must repay all or a part of the 
funding received in accordance with program regulations. The modified 
system of records announced in this notice is required to track 
scholars' enrollment, employment, and fulfillment of the terms of their 
service obligations.
    The PDPDCS system of records is being modified to include records 
on scholars from grants awarded to IHEs and other eligible entities by 
OESE, OIE's Professional Development, and OSERS, RSA's RLTT 
discretionary grant programs. As described below, RSA will adopt the 
PDPDCS to collect data on its training programs. There is no existing 
system of records for the RSA to track the progress toward completion 
of a scholar's service obligation.
    The Department is modifying the section entitled ``SYSTEM NAME AND 
NUMBER'' from ``Special Education--Individual Reporting on Regulatory 
Compliance Related to the Personnel Development Program's Service 
Obligation and the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 
(GPRA)'' (18-16-04) to ``Personnel Development Program Data Collection 
System (PDPDCS)'' (18-16-04).
    The Department is modifying the section entitled ``SECURITY 
CLASSIFICATION'' to indicate that the system is unclassified.
    The Department is modifying the section entitled ``SYSTEM 
LOCATION(S)'' to reflect the current names and addresses of the 
contractor and subcontractor who maintain the records in the system.
    The Department is modifying the section entitled ``SYSTEM 
MANAGER(S)'' to update the title, business address, and contact 
information of the Department official in Research to Practice 
Division, OSEP, OSERS, who will serve as the system manager.
    The Department is modifying the sections entitled ``AUTHORITY FOR 
MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM,'' ``PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM,'' ``CATEGORIES 
OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM,'' ``CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE 
SYSTEM,'' ``RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES,'' and ``POLICIES AND PRACTICES 
FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS'' to account for the OIE and RSA records being 
integrated into the PDPDCS system, in addition to the previously 
maintained OSEP records.
    The section entitled ``PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM'' is further being 
updated to broaden the purposes to include additional purposes of 
serving as a resource for program improvement and grant monitoring and, 
informing program and budgetary planning.
    Additionally, the Department is modifying the section entitled 
``CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM'' to specify that the record on 
the number of years a scholar needs to work to satisfy the service 
obligation must be ``in eligible employment;'' the Department may ask 
questions to IHEs, as well as scholars, about topics related

[[Page 32891]]

to program performance measures; program performance measures may 
include certification status; and, the Department's contractor will 
maintain periodic back-ups of records on a web-based data server that 
collects data on scholars from grantees, scholars, and their employers.
    The Department is also modifying the section entitled ``RECORD 
SOURCE CATEGORIES'' to update the references to the contractor and 
subcontractor who implement the web-based data collection system and to 
clarify that record source categories also may include persons or 
entities who provide data to the Department under the routine uses set 
forth in the notice. Additionally, the Department is modifying this 
section to remove language requiring IHEs and other eligible entities 
to provide information on scholars who they determine will not fulfill 
their service obligations because it is the Department's ultimate 
responsibility to make this determination and this system of records 
will generate sufficient information for the Department to do so. 
Finally, the Department is modifying this section to update the name 
and location of the Department's accounts receivable group to 
``Accounts Receivables and Bank Management Group'' and the ``Office of 
Finance and Operations,'' respectively.
    The Department is also modifying the section entitled ``POLICIES 
AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS'' to update references to the 
Department's contractor and subcontractor; to indicate that a campus 
and building security system protects hard copy records; and, to 
explain that the Department's subcontractor maintains the electronic 
records on its secure server.
    The Department is modifying routine use (1) entitled ``Program 
Purposes'' to account for the OIE and RSA records being integrated into 
the PDPDCS system; and, to expand routine use (1)(b) to allow for 
disclosures to grantees for monitoring, enforcement, or technical 
assistance related to scholar employment.
    The Department is modifying routine use (2) entitled ``Disclosure 
in the Course of Responding to Breach of Data'' to permit the 
Department to disclose records from this system of records in response 
to a suspected or confirmed breach of the system of records; and, to 
explain that such disclosures are limited to circumstances where the 
Department determines that as a result of the suspected or confirmed 
breach, there is a risk of harm to individuals, the Department 
(including its information systems, programs, and operations), the 
Federal Government, or national security.
    The Department is modifying routine use (3) entitled ``Contract 
Disclosure'' to remove language that referenced imposing safeguard 
requirements on the contractor ``before entering into'' the contract 
and that were required under subsection (m) of the Privacy Act. The 
modified language clarifies that the Department will require, as part 
of applicable Department contracts, contractors to whom disclosures are 
made under this routine use to agree to establish and maintain 
safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of the disclosed 
records.
    The Department is removing routine use (4) entitled ``Disclosure 
for Use by Other Law Enforcement Agencies'' because the system of 
records is not used in a law enforcement capacity.
    The Department is modifying newly renumbered routine use (5) 
entitled ``Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) 
Disclosure'' to insert the word ``person'' in place of the word 
``individual,'' to avoid any public confusion that may have been caused 
by the Department's prior use of the word ``individual'' given that 
this term is defined in the Privacy Act and to clarify that references 
to ``litigation'' cover both judicial or administrative litigation.
    The Department modified newly renumbered routine use (9) entitled 
``Research Disclosure'' to remove language that referenced Privacy Act 
safeguards and to clarify that researchers to whom disclosures are made 
will be required to agree to establish and maintain safeguards to 
protect the security and confidentiality of the disclosed records.
    Pursuant to the requirements in Office of Management and Budget 
Memorandum M-17-12 entitled ``Preparing for and Responding to a Breach 
of Personally Identifiable Information,'' the Department added routine 
use (10) entitled ``Disclosure in Assisting Another Agency in 
Responding to a Breach of Data'' in order to permit the Department to 
disclose records from this system of records in the course of assisting 
another Federal agency or entity in responding to a breach of data.
    The Department is modifying the section entitled ``ADMINISTRATIVE, 
TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS'' to specify which Department 
personnel have access to the system to monitor system improvements and 
upgrades; to specify a limited number of contractor and subcontractor 
personnel who have administrative rights, including read and write 
access, to the system; and, to explain that the system is maintained in 
accordance with applicable National Institute of Standards and 
Technology (NIST) standards.
    The Department is modifying the sections entitled ``RECORD ACCESS 
PROCEDURES,'' ``CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES,'' and ``NOTIFICATION 
PROCEDURES'' to define and discuss the ``necessary particulars'' needed 
to access, contest, or be notified of a record.
    Finally, the Department is adding a section entitled ``HISTORY'' to 
comply with the requirements in Office of Management and Budget 
Circular No. A-108.
    In addition, the ``Indian Education--Individual Reporting on 
Regulatory Compliance Related to the Indian Education Professional 
Development program's Service Obligation and the Government Performance 
and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA)'' (18-14-05) system of records was first 
published in the Federal Register on January 25, 2011 (76 FR 4334-
4338); and, contains records on individuals who are recipients of 
financial assistance from grants awarded by OESE, OIE's Professional 
Development program. The Department is rescinding this system of 
records, with plans for the system's functions and records to be 
integrated into the PDPDCS.

Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA) and the related regulations in 34 CFR 
part 263, subpart A.
    For the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), this system 
of records is authorized by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended 
by title IV of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), 
which requires program performance measurement and authorizes service 
obligation, as well as related regulations in 34 CFR parts 385 and 386, 
et seq.

PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM:
    The information in this system is used for the following purposes: 
Managing all aspects of the Federal service obligation requirements for 
those scholars who receive Federal funds through respective OSEP, RSA, 
and OIE grant programs including debt referrals to the Department's 
Accounts Receivable and Bank Management Group (ARBMG); providing 
accountability for resources expended under the OSEP, OIE, and RSA 
training and personnel development programs in response to the 
Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA); serving as a resource 
for program improvement and grant monitoring; and informing program and 
budgetary planning.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    This system contains records on individuals who are recipients of 
Department funds from grants awarded to institutions of higher 
education (IHEs) and other eligible entities by OSEP's Personnel 
Development Program, OIE's Professional Development discretionary grant 
program, and RSA's Rehabilitation Long-Term Training (RLTT) 
discretionary grant program.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    This system consists of records about scholars who receive funding 
from OSEP, OIE, and RSA training grants. Information in this system 
includes contact information for the grantee; the grant identification 
number; each scholar's name, Social Security number (SSN), address, 
telephone number, email address, and alternate contact information; 
name and contact information of a person through whom the scholar can 
be contacted; the number of years the scholar needs to work in eligible 
employment to satisfy the service obligation; the total amount of 
funding received; the time period during which the scholar must satisfy 
the service obligation; eligible employment to fulfill the service 
obligation; contact information for employers; and, as applicable, all 
other obligations of the scholar under the regulations. Employers will 
be asked to verify the employment information provided by the scholar. 
In addition, IHEs and scholars may be asked questions about topics 
related to program performance measures (e.g., specific areas of 
training, certification status, reasons for leaving the program before 
completion, gender, ethnic origin, and education history). The 
contractor maintains periodic back-ups on a web-based data server that 
collects data on scholars from grantees, scholars, and their employers.
    This system of records does not cover records maintained in the 
Department's system of records notice entitled ``Education's Central 
Automated Processing System (EDCAPS)'' (18-04-04) as part of the 
Department's receivables management function.

RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES:
    For OSEP grants awarded prior to FY 2005 and OIE grants awarded 
prior to FY 2009, collection of information from IHEs and other 
eligible entities is limited to identifying information about

[[Page 32893]]

scholars, their service obligation, and the amount of funding received.
    The information for OSEP grants awarded for FY 2005 and after, OIE 
grants awarded for FY 2009 and after, and RSA grants will be collected 
from grantees, scholars, and scholars' employers primarily through a 
web-based data collection system implemented by AnLar, a contractor of 
the Department, and Westat, a subcontractor of the Department.
    Through this system, information related to tracking scholars' 
enrollment, employment, and fulfillment of the terms of the service 
obligation and to evaluating progress on the performance measures for 
the Personnel Development Program will be collected from grantees, 
scholars, and the scholars' employers. When OSEP, OIE, or RSA 
determines that a scholar will not fulfill the service obligation and 
must instead repay some or all of the scholarship funds disbursed to 
the scholar, OSEP, OIE, or RSA, respectively, will forward applicable 
information to the Department's Accounts Receivables and Bank 
Management Group in the Office of Finance and Operations.
    Additionally, the Department may collect records from other persons 
or entities from which data is obtained under the routine uses set 
forth below.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES 
OF USERS AND PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:

employees of an entity with whom the Department contracts when 
disclosure is necessary for an employee of the entity to perform a 
function pursuant to the Department's contract with the entity. As part 
of such a contract, the Department shall require the contractor to 
agree to establish and maintain safeguards to protect the security and 
confidentiality of the disclosed records.
    (4) Enforcement Disclosure. In the event that information in this 
system of records indicates, either on its face or in connection with 
other information, a violation or potential violation of any applicable 
statute, regulation, or order of a competent authority, the Department 
may disclose the relevant records to the appropriate agency, whether 
foreign, Federal, State, Tribal, or local, charged with the

necessary to assist the recipient agency or entity in (a) responding to 
a suspected or confirmed breach; or (b) preventing, minimizing, or 
remedying the risk of harm to individuals, the recipient agency or 
entity (including its information systems, programs, and operations), 
the Federal Government, or national security, resulting from a 
suspected or confirmed breach.

DISCLOSURE TO CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCIES:
    The Department may disclose to a consumer reporting agency 
information regarding a claim by the Department that the head of the 
Department has determined to be valid and overdue. Such information is 
limited to--(1) the name, address, taxpayer identification number, and 
other information necessary to establish the identity of the individual 
responsible for the claim; (2) the amount, status, and history of the 
claim; and (3) the program under which the claim arose. The Department 
may disclose the information specified in this paragraph under 5 U.S.C. 
552a(b)(12) and the procedures contained in 31 U.S.C. 3711(e). A 
consumer reporting agency to which these disclosures may be made is 
defined in 31 U.S.C. 3701(a)(3).

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS:
    Westat, the Department's subcontractor through the AnLar contract, 
maintains hard copy records of information about OSEP, OIE and RSA 
scholars in locked file cabinets that are located within locked offices 
protected by a campus and building security system; and, maintains 
electronic records with information about OSEP, OIE, and RSA scholars 
on its secure server.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETRIEVAL OF RECORDS:
    Records in this system are indexed by a unique number assigned by 
the PDPDCS to each individual.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF RECORDS:
    These records will be maintained and disposed of in accordance with 
the records retention and disposition authority approved by the 
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Until NARA 
approves a retention and disposition schedule for these records, the 
Department will not destroy or delete any records.

ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS:
    Access to the records is limited to authorized personnel only. All 
physical access to the Department's site, and to the sites of the 
Department's contractor and subcontractor, where this system of records 
is maintained, is controlled and monitored by security personnel.
    The computer system employed by the Department offers a high degree 
of resistance to tampering and circumvention. This security system 
limits data access to Department and contract staff on a ``need to 
know'' basis, and controls individual users' ability to access and 
alter records within the system. Only Contracting Officer 
Representatives (CORs) assigned to the PDPDCS contract by the 
Department have ``read only'' access to the PDPDCS to monitor the 
improvements and upgrades to the system. A limited number of contractor 
and subcontractor personnel have administrative rights, including read 
and write access, to the system.
    The contractor and subcontractor established secure procedures at 
their sites to ensure confidentiality of data. Their systems are 
required to ensure that information identifying individuals is in files 
physically separated from other research data. The contractor and 
subcontractor will maintain security of the complete set of all master 
data files and documentation. Access to individually identifying data 
is strictly controlled. At each site all hard copy data is kept in 
locked file cabinets during nonworking hours, and work on hard copy 
data will take place in a single room, except for data entry. Physical 
security of electronic data is also maintained. Security features that 
protect electronic project data include: Password-protected accounts 
that authorize users to access only specific network directories and 
network software on the contractor's and subcontractor's systems; and 
user rights and directory and file attributes that limit those who can 
access particular directories and files and determine how they can edit 
them.
    All security for the system is maintained in accordance with 
Moderate data sensitivity controls as defined in National Institute of 
Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53 Revision 4, 
``Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and 
Organizations.''
