SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Background The Department of the Interior (DOI), Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians (OST) maintains the Individual Indian Money (IIM) Trust Fund—Interior, OS–02 system of records. This system assists OST in meeting the fiduciary responsibilities set forth in the American Indian Trust Fund Management Reform Act of 1994, including management of the receipt, investment, disbursement and administration of money held in trust for individual Indians and Alaskan Natives (or their heirs), and Indian Tribes. The OST provides trust services and information for Indian trust funds program management and oversees the implementation of trust reforms, trust accounting and coordination of trust policies intra-bureau-wide related to the management of Indian trust funds and assets. The system also provides litigation support by analyzing and reconciling the historical collection, distribution, and disbursement of income from IIM accounts, Indian trust land, and other revenue sources. The system also supports DOI land consolidation activities of fractionated lands and annual tribal trust evaluations for Tribes who compact trust programs, functions, services, and activities under Public Law 93–638 Self-Governance Compacts on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior. OST is publishing this revised notice to (1) update the system location, (2) propose new and modified routine uses, (3) update the categories of records and categories of individuals covered by the system, and (4) provide general and PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44321 administrative updates to remaining sections to accurately reflect the management and scope of the system in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–108, ‘‘Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act.’’ OST is proposing to modify existing routine uses to provide clarity and transparency, and reflect updates consistent with standard DOI routine uses. Routine uses A, B, G and L have been modified to provide additional clarification on external organizations and circumstances where disclosures are proper and necessary to facilitate the management of the IIM system. Routine use A was modified to further clarify disclosures to the Department of Justice or other Federal agencies when necessary in relation to litigation or judicial proceedings. Routine use B was modified to clarify disclosures to a congressional office to respond to or resolve an individual’s request made to that office. Routine use G facilitates sharing with other government and tribal organizations pursuant to a court order or discovery request. Modified routine use L was revised to separate the sharing of information with the Department of the Treasury to recover debts owed to the United States into new proposed routine use W to distinguish the purpose of the sharing of information and promote greater transparency. Modified routine use I and new routine use J allow DOI to share information with appropriate Federal agencies or entities when reasonably necessary to respond to a breach of personally identifiable information and to prevent, minimize, or remedy the risk of harm to individuals or the Federal Government, or assist an agency in locating individuals affected by a breach in accordance with OMB Memorandum M–17–12, ‘‘Preparing for and Responding to a Breach of Personally Identifiable Information.’’ OST is proposing new routine uses to facilitate the sharing of information with agencies and organizations to ensure the efficient and effective management of the IIM system, or to carry out a statutory responsibility of the DOI or Federal Government. Proposed routine use V facilitates sharing of information with the Executive Office of the President to resolve issues concerning an individual’s records when requested by the subject individual. Proposed routine use W allows sharing of information with the Department of the Treasury to recover debts owed to the United States. E:\FR\FM\23AUN1.SGM 23AUN1
