SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MidAtlantic Fishery Management Council and the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission have initiated an amendment to the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass FMP, known as the ‘‘Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Commercial/ Recreational Allocation Amendment.’’ This amendment will consider potential modifications to the allocations of catch or landings between the commercial and recreational sectors for summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass. The commercial and recreational allocations for all three species were set in the mid1990s based on historical proportions of landings (for summer flounder and black sea bass) or catch (for scup) from each sector. In July 2018, the Marine Recreational Information Program released revisions to its time series of catch (harvest and discards) estimates. These revisions resulted in much higher recreational catch estimates compared to previous estimates, affecting the entire time series of data going back to 1981. Some changes have also been made to commercial catch data since the allocations were established. The current commercial and recreational allocation percentages for all three species do not reflect the current understanding of the recent and historic proportions of catch and landings from the two sectors. This amendment will consider whether changes to these allocations are warranted. Additional information and amendment documents are available at: http://www.mafmc.org/actions/sfsbsballocation-amendment. The Council and Commission will hold 11 public scoping hearings on this amendment, during which Council or Commission staff will brief the public on the contents of the amendment documents and alternatives under consideration, prior to opening the hearing for public comments.

Notice. DoD announces an early engagement opportunity regarding implementation of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 within the acquisition regulations. Early inputs should be submitted in writing via the Defense Acquisition Regulations System (DARS) website shown below. The website will be updated when early inputs will no longer be accepted. DATES: Submit early inputs via the DARS website at https:// www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/early_ engagement.html. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Send inquiries via email to osd.dfars@ mail.mil and reference ‘‘Early Engagement Opportunity: Implementation of NDAA for FY 2020’’ in the subject line. DoD is providing an opportunity for the public to provide early inputs on implementation of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 within the acquisition regulations. The public is invited to submit early inputs on sections of the NDAA for FY 2020 via the DARS website at https://www.acq.osd.mil/ dpap/dars/early_engagement.html. The website will be updated when early inputs will no longer be accepted.

AGENCY: Notice of a modified System of Records. ACTION: The OUSD(C) is modifying an existing System of Records titled, ‘‘Forms and Account Management Service (FAMS),’’ DCFO 01. FAMS will be the sole, web-based platform for the appointment and termination of Department Accountable Officials, appointment and termination of Key Signatories of financial documentation, and access management to a portfolio of information systems. During Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness (FIAR) audits of Department of Defense (DoD) Information Technology (IT) processes, numerous notices of findings and recommendations were issued related to vulnerabilities in managing Defense systems account access and appointment of accountable official positions. Findings identified gaps in properly handling and managing accounts for access and authority to act. Improper account management presents information security risks that could result in unauthorized access. Historically, many of these functions were performed in a decentralized manner and conducted manually without effective checks and balances on accuracy. Introduction of the new web-based platform will reduce and eliminate the use of paper forms as it will automate the request and approval processes and enable periodic validation and reconciliation of account records against actual account permissions. SUMMARY: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records Sfmt 4703 This notice is effective upon publication; however, comments on the Routine Uses will be accepted on or before February 13, 2020. The Routine Uses are effective at the close of the comment period. DATES: E:\FR\FM\14JAN1.SGM 14JAN1
