contract, the Department shall require the contractor to agree to 
establish and maintain safeguards to protect the security and 
confidentiality of the disclosed records.
    (7) Research Disclosure. The Department may disclose records to a

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS:

system.

    The records are retrieved by the applicant's or nominee's name and 
year of application or nomination, as applicable.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF RECORDS:
    The Department shall submit a retention and disposition schedule 
that covers the records contained in this system to the National

ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS:
    All physical access to the Department site where this system of 
records is maintained and the sites of the Department's staff and

ability to access and alter records within the system.
