The United States Postal Service® (Postal Service) is proposing to modify a General Privacy Act System of Records (SOR) to support an initiative that promotes innovation by issuing challenges and soliciting responses from participants through a crowd sourced solution. SUMMARY: These revisions will become effective without further notice on September 16, 2021, unless, in response to comments received on or before that date result in a contrary determination. ADDRESSES: Comments may be submitted via email to the Privacy and Records Management Office, United States Postal Service Headquarters (privacy@usps.gov).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is in accordance with the Privacy Act requirement that agencies publish their systems of records in the Federal Register when there is a revision, change, or addition, or when the agency establishes a new system of records. The Postal Service is proposing revisions to an existing system of records (SOR) to khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Aug 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 support innovation in its operations by way of crowd sourced solutions. I. Background The Postal Service is seeking to reduce the cost and enhance the value of proposed solutions to problems faced by the organization that promote efficient and effective operation. As part of this initiative, USPS is soliciting collaborative methods to develop models, infrastructure, and innovation platforms to enhance USPS’s capabilities. The objectives of this initiative will advance the mission of USPS by: • Supporting USPS Technology Development and Applications • Providing the ability to award prizes competitively to stimulate innovation II. Rationale for Changes to USPS Privacy Act Systems of Records The Postal Service is proposing to modify USPS SOR 400.000, Supplier and Tenant Records in support of an innovative approach for gathering feedback and ideas regarding challenges faced and topics of interest. USPS routinely encounters challenging science, technology, and engineering problems in the ordinary course of providing postal services. USPS is working with another federal agency with expertise in solving problems by way of crowd sourced solutions. USPS seeks to utilize that expertise to aid it in formulating and conducting challenges for crowd sourced solutions with the purpose of identifying problem sets that have objectives suitable for generating innovative solutions using a distributed innovation model. USPS will further this objective by sponsoring competitions and challenges to generate innovative solutions. Two new purposes have been added to USPS SOR 400.000, Supplier and Tenant Records, along with a new Category of Records and a record retention and disposal policy that pertain to records maintained by the crowd sourced initiative. The Postal Service will also change the name of the SOR from ‘‘USPS SOR 400.000, Supplier and Tenant Records’’ to ‘‘USPS SOR 400.000, Supplier Records, Tenant Records, and Records related to other Agreements’’ to reflect the scope of information that will be maintained by this system of records. III. Description of the Modified System of Records Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, or arguments on this proposal. A report of the proposed revisions to this SOR has been sent to PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46027 Congress and to the Office of Management and Budget for their evaluations. The Postal Service does not expect this modified system of records to have any adverse effect on individual privacy rights. Accordingly, for the reasons stated above, the Postal Service proposes revisions to this system of records as follows: SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER: USPS 400.000 Supplier Records, Tenant Records, and Records related to other Agreements. SECURITY CLASSIFICATION: None. SYSTEM LOCATION: USPS Headquarters; supply management offices; facilities service offices; area and district facilities, and contractor sites. SYSTEM MANAGER(S) AND ADDRESS: For contracting records: Vice President, Supply Management, United States Postal Service, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Washington, DC 20260. For contractor fingerprint screening records: Chief Postal Inspector, Inspection Service, United States Postal Service, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Washington, DC 20260. For real property owner and tenant records: Vice President, Facilities, United States Postal Service, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Washington, DC 20260. AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM: 39 U.S.C. 401 and 411. PURPOSE(S): 1. To administer contracts. 2. To determine supplier suitability for assignments requiring access to mail. 3. To adjudicate claims by owners and tenants of real property acquired by USPS. 4. To facilitate registration for participation in innovative challenges sponsored by USPS. 5. To provide an interactive forum that promotes innovation by challenging participants to gather ideas and relevant feedback about selected problems and topics using crowd sourced solutions. CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM: Suppliers; prospective suppliers; owners and tenants of real property purchased or leased by USPS; participants in challenges sponsored by USPS. CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM: 1. Supplier information: Records related to suppliers, such as supplier E:\FR\FM\17AUN1.SGM 17AUN1
