SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This ICR seeks PRA authority for the Peace Corps Volunteer Authorization for Examination and/or Treatment information collection. The Sam Farr and Nick Castle Peace Corps Reform Act of 2018 (Farr-Castle), modified various aspects of the Peace Corps, including changes to the provision of health care to volunteers. Entitlement to disability compensation payments does not commence until the day after the date of termination of service as a volunteer. Farr-Castle directs the Secretary of the Department of Labor to authorize the Director of the Peace Corps to furnish medical benefits to a volunteer, injured during the volunteer’s period of service for a period of 120 days following the termination of such service, set forth in 5 U.S.C. 8142(c)(3)). In view of the provisions required by this bill, OWCP and the Peace Corps have collaborated to initiate a new form CA–15, Peace Corps Volunteer Authorization for Examination and/or Treatment. The form will authorize medical treatment for recently terminated Peace Corps volunteers who require medical treatment for injuries/exposure sustained in the performance of their volunteer service. Issuance of this form will solely be at the discretion of the Peace Corps and will bridge a gap between the occurrences of an initial injury, disease exposure ensuring that the recently terminated volunteers receive prompt medical care, immediately, for a period of 120 days following separation from service. Peace Corps Volunteers and the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act authorize this information collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8142 and 5 U.S.C. 8101. This proposed information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless the OMB, under the PRA, approves it and displays a currently valid OMB control number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a valid OMB control number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on August 7, 2019 (84 FR 38671).

[[Page 3422]]


ACTION: Notice of a new system of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, and Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-108, notice is hereby given that the 
Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), a 
component within the United States Department of Justice (DOJ or 
Department), proposes to develop a new system of records notice titled 
COPS Management System: NexGen (CMS:NxG), JUSTICE/COPS-003. The COPS 
Office proposes to establish this system of records to consolidate its 
various business databases, applications, and web applications under 
one umbrella to support the grant-making and grant management processes 
from the pre-award phase, including posting solicitations and 
administering applications for COPS Office funding, to the post-award 
phase, including budget modifications and award monitoring activities. 
Previously, grant-making and grant management was handled by a legacy 
system covered under the DOJ-003 Correspondence Management Systems 
(CMS) SORN. Because certain aspects of NexGen are more consistent with 
a separate system of records, COPS is issuing a new SORN to make that 
clear.

DATES: In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), this System of 
Records is effective upon publication, subject to a 30-day period in 
which to comment on the routine uses, described below. Please submit 
any comments by February 20, 2020.

ADDRESSES: The public, OMB, and Congress are invited to submit any 
comments by mail to the United States Department of Justice, Office of 
Privacy and Civil Liberties, ATTN: Privacy Analyst, 145 N St. NE, Suite 
8W. 300, Washington, DC 20002; by facsimile at 202-307-0693; or by 
email at [email protected]. To ensure proper handling, 
please reference the above-listed CPCLO Order No. on your 
correspondence.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark Gowen, Information System 
Security Officer, COPS Office, 145 N Street NE, Washington, DC 20530; 
by email at [email protected], or by phone at (202) 305-8840.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The COPS Office advances the practice of 
community policing in America's state, local, territorial, and tribal 
law enforcement agencies through information and grant resources. 
CMS:NxG provides authorized internal users with the capability to 
effectively run queries on various data elements, review and score 
applications, select successful applicants for COPS Office funding, 
generate award documents for successful applicants, sign off on awards, 
and obligate award funds. CMS:NxG is also used by authorized internal 
users to update, modify, and maintain files for unsuccessful 
applicants, and award files for past and current award recipients.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), the Department has provided a 
report to OMB and Congress on this new system of records.
