Privacy Act of 1974; Matching Program, 7714-7715 [2021-02071]

Download as PDF 7714 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 19 / Monday, February 1, 2021 / Notices conducting research, education, and outreach programs. Grant monies are available for funding activities that help obtain the objectives of the Sea Grant Program. Both single and multi-project grants are awarded, with the latter representing approximately 80 percent of the total grant program. In addition to other standard grant application requirements, three forms are required with the grants. The Sea Grant Control Form (NOAA Form 90–1) is used to identify the organizations and personnel who would be involved in the grant and briefly summarize the proposed activities under the grant. The Project Record Form (NOAA Form 90–2), which collects summary data on projects, helps the National Sea Grant Office (NSGO) evaluate the proposals during its funding decisions. The Sea Grant Budget Form (NOAA Form 90–4) provides information similar to, but more detailed than, standardized budget forms SF–424A or SF–424C, and allows the NSGO to determine whether or not the breakdown cost of multi-project grant awards is reasonable. Collectively, the data supplied in these documents form the basis for many of NSGO’s responses to the Administration, the Congress, other agencies, and to the public about the scope of Sea Grant activities. The National Sea Grant College Program Act (33 U.S.C. 1126) also provides for the designation of a public or private institution of higher education, institute, laboratory, or State or local agency as a Sea Grant college or Sea Grant institute. Applications are required for designation of Sea Grant Colleges and Sea Grant Institutes, although no forms are required. The data the collection provides helps the National Sea Grant Office determine the suitability of the applicant for meeting the standards and conditions for being a Sea Grant College as set forth in 33 U.S.C. 1126 and 15 CFR 918.5. The NSGO proposes two revisions to this information collection. The NOAA Form 90–2 is currently collected using an Excel spreadsheet (100% of use cases). The NSGO intends to migrate the Excel spreadsheet to an online webform that is hosted on Sea Grant’s Planning, Implementation and Evaluation Resource (PIER) database. The online webform would provide an additional and alternative method of information collection, but not eliminate the option for an Excel-based collection. During implementation (testing Q2/3–FY21; rollout Q4–FY21), the webform will likely require cosmetic modifications on the form structure, but no additional data fields will be added. Such modifications will be driven by software VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:57 Jan 29, 2021 Jkt 253001 requirements and improvements to information management and the user interface. This modification would enable synchronization of existing PIER data, so that time of user entry and data quality control is minimized. Additionally, two new information fields will be added that are required to better resolve two existing data fields, while one field will be eliminated. Such revisions will be reflected on both the Excel-based forms and the webform. Affected Public: Academic and notfor-profit institutions; individuals or households; business or other for-profit organizations; State, Local, or Tribal government. Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to Obtain or Retain Benefits. Legal Authority: Sea Grant legislation, 33 U.S.C. 1121–1131. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view the Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100–503), regulates the use of computer matching agreements by Federal agencies when records in a system of records are matched with other Federal, state, or local government records. Among other things, it requires Federal agencies involved in computer matching agreements to publish a notice in the Federal Register regarding the establishment of the matching program. This agreement will be in effect for a period of 18 months, with a provision SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 19 / Monday, February 1, 2021 / Notices for a one-time extension for a period not to exceed 12 months.

AmeriCorps will provide SSA with a data file including each applicant’s and potential education award recipient’s social security number, first and last names, and date of birth. SSA will conduct a match on the identifying information. If the match does not return a result verifying the individual’s citizenship status, AmeriCorps will contact the individual or the grant recipient program that selected the individual to verify the results in accordance with the requirements of 5 U.S.C. 552a(p) and applicable OMB guidelines. The affected individual will have an opportunity to contest the accuracy of the information provided by SSA. The applicant will have at least 30 days from the date of the notice to provide clear and convincing evidence of the accuracy of the social security number, proof of U.S. citizenship, or both. Applicants will be informed at the time of application that information provided on the application is subject to verification through a computer matching program. The application package will contain a privacy certification notice that the applicant must sign authorizing AmeriCorps to verify the information provided. For transferees of education awards, at the time an award is transferred, AmeriCorps will provide individual notice that the SSN is subject to verification through a computer matching program. AmeriCorps will send a privacy notice to the transferee, and in the case of a minor, to the parent or legal guardian. The transferee, parent, or legal guardian must sign the privacy certification authorizing AmeriCorps to verify the information provided. AmeriCorps will furnish a copy of this notice to both Houses of Congress and the Office of Management and Budget. Participating Agencies: Participants in this computer matching program are the Social Security Administration (source agency) and the Corporation for National and Community Service (recipient agency). Authority for Conducting the Matching Program: This agreement is executed in compliance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (5 U.S.C. 552a), VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:57 Jan 29, 2021 Jkt 253001 and the regulations and guidance promulgated under the Act. SSA’s legal authority to enter into this agreement is section 1106 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1306) and the regulations promulgated pursuant to that section (20 CFR part 401). The authority for SSA’s disclosure of record information is 5 U.S.C. 552a (b)(3). Section 146(a)(3) of the NCSA (42 U.S.C. 12602(a)) sets forth the eligibility requirements for an individual to receive an Education Award from the National Service Trust upon successful completion of a term of service in an approved national service position. Section 1711 of the Serve America Act (Pub. L. 111–13) directs AmeriCorps to enter into a data matching agreement to verify statements made by an individual declaring that such individual is in compliance with section 146(a)(3) of the NCSA by comparing information provided by the individual with information relevant to such a declaration in the possession of another Federal agency. In accordance with the study AmeriCorps completed pursuant to section 1711 of the Serve America Act, AmeriCorps determined that a data matching program with SSA is the most effective means to verify an individual’s statement that he or she is in compliance with section 146(a)(3) of the NCSA. Purpose(s): The computer match between AmeriCorps and SSA will enable AmeriCorps to verify the social security numbers of individuals applying to serve in approved national service positions and those designated to receive national service education awards under the National and Community Service Act of 1990 (NCSA) and verify statements made by those individuals regarding their citizenship status.
