SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Background The Department of Homeland Security requires certain individuals, such as employees and contractors, to undergo a background investigation prior to being granted access to DHS information and facilities. Some DHS components have delegated authority from the Office of Personnel Management as the Suitability Executive Agent and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence as the Security Executive Agent to conduct their own personnel security investigations. This system of records covers background investigations completed by those DHS components with delegated authority (e.g., CBP, ICE), and adjudications of background investigations for all DHS personnel.1 DHS is modifying and reissuing DHS/ ALL–023 Personnel Security Management SORN. DHS and its components and offices rely on this SORN for the collection and maintenance of records that pertain to personnel security management. The DHS/ALL–023 Personnel Security Management System of Records is the baseline system for personnel security activities, as led by the DHS Office of 1 Background investigations for all other components are conducted by the Department of Defense and fall under Personnel Vetting Records System, DUSDI 02–DoD, 83 FR 52420 (October 17, 2018). PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64511 the Chief Security Officer, for the Department. DHS is updating the purpose of this SORN to include: • Adding the use of personnel security records to assess eligibility for Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) Photographic identification cards. • Adding the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) as an authority for collection. • Updating the category of individuals to include those individuals who are seeking a credential that requires review of information contained in this system of records. • Updating the categories of records to include publicly available information, such as information obtained from social media, that may be collected as part of the background investigation process, as described in Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) Security Executive Agent Directive (SEAD) 5; address and phone number for individuals; polygraph records; fingerprints and fingerprint records; and information about an individual’s character reference(s). Additionally, DHS is updating the category of records to include information collected as part of the Department’s compliance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003. • Modifying routine uses E and F as required by OMB Memorandum M–17– 12, modifying routine use J to clarify when DHS may share information from this SORN with a potential or current employer; and adding routine use M to document sharing with the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) for the purpose of continuous evaluation. • Updating the retention schedule to conform to the new General Records Schedule 5.6. This notice also includes nonsubstantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. Consistent with DHS’s information sharing mission, information stored in the DHS/ALL–023 Personnel Management System of Records may be shared with other DHS Components that have a need to know the information to carry out their national security, law enforcement, immigration, intelligence, or other homeland security functions. In addition, DHS may share information with appropriate federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, foreign, or international government agencies consistent with the routine uses set forth in this system of records notice.
