FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Teri Barnett, Departmental Privacy Officer, U.S. Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Room 7112, Washington, DC 20240, DOI_Privacy@ios.doi.gov or (202) 208–1605. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a, DOI is rescinding the DOI–84, National Business Center Datamart, system of records notice from its inventory because it is no longer needed as the records are covered under INTERIOR/ DOI–85, Payroll, Attendance, Retirement, and Leave Records, 83 FR 34156 (July 19, 2018). The National Business Center Datamart system provided a data repository with capability to query data and produce reports in support of fiscal and payroll processing from two Privacy Act systems, INTERIOR/DOI–85, Payroll, Attendance, Retirement, and Leave Records, and INTERIOR/DOI–90, Federal Financial System, 64 FR 46930 (August 27, 1999). The Federal Financial System has been retired and is no longer used to process or maintain financial information. DOI is publishing a rescindment notice for the INTERIOR/ DOI–90, Federal Financial System, system notice elsewhere in the Federal Register. Since the Federal Financial System is retired and Datamart no longer processes financial data from that system, DOI has determined that the DOI–84, National Business Center Datamart, system of records notice is no longer necessary as it does not identify any additional categories of individuals, categories of records, or routine uses for personnel payroll processing records beyond those included in the current INTERIOR/DOI–85, Payroll, Attendance, Retirement, and Leave Records, system of records notice. This rescindment will eliminate an unnecessary duplicate notice and is in accordance with the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Sep 07, 2021 Jkt 253001 Privacy Act of 1974 and the Office of Management and Budget Circular A– 108, Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act. Rescinding the DOI–84, National Business Center Datamart, system of records notice will have no adverse impacts on individuals as the personnel payroll records are covered under the current INTERIOR/DOI–85, Payroll, Attendance, Retirement, and Leave Records, system of records notice. This rescindment will also promote the overall streamlining and management of DOI Privacy Act systems of records. SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER: Interior, National Business Center Datamart, DOI–84.

The Commission made these determinations pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)). It completed and filed its determinations in these reviews on September 1, 2021. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 5229 (September 2021), entitled Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe from China: Investigation Nos. 701–TA–469 and 731–TA–1168 (Second Review).
