ACTION: Notice of a modified system of records. AGENCY: Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, the Department of the Interior (DOI) is issuing a public notice of its intent to modify the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) system of records, BSEE–01, Investigations Case Management System (CMS). DOI is publishing this revised system of records notice to propose a new breach routine use; modify four existing routine uses; update the system manager address; remove references to a cloud system; and provide general and administrative updates in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget Circular (OMB) A–108, Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act. DATES: This modified system will be effective upon publication. New or modified routine uses will be effective October 18, 2021. Submit comments on or before October 18, 2021. ADDRESSES: You may send comments identified by docket number [DOI– 2021–0007] by any of the following methods: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Rowena Dufford, Associate Privacy Officer, Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, 45600 Woodland Road, Sterling, VA 20166, privacy@bsee.gov or 703–787–1257. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background BSEE maintains the BSEE–01, Investigations Case Management System (CMS), system of records. The purpose of this system of records is to manage, track and report civil administrative investigations related to operations on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). BSEE conducts investigations on safety concerns, environmental risks and incidents which includes but is not limited to reportable injuries, the loss or damage of property, and possible violations of Federal laws and regulations. While BSEE conducts civil administrative investigations rather than criminal investigations the Bureau may make referrals of possible criminal activity to internal and external law enforcement organizations as appropriate for investigation. Records include known or suspected civil violations; information related to possible criminal activities; incidentrelated information and observations from other sources; protection efforts; information to justify funding requests and expenditures; investigator training; referrals and/or recommendations related to incident investigations; and evidence. Incident and non-incident data related to activity occurring on the OCS is collected in support of investigations, regulatory enforcement, homeland security, and security (physical, personnel, stability, environmental, and E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 178 / Friday, September 17, 2021 / Notices industrial) activities. This may include data documenting investigation activities, enforcement recommendations, recommendation results, property damage, injuries and fatalities, and analytical or statistical reports. CMS allows for BSEE management to make informed decisions on recommendations for enforcement, civil penalties, and other administrative actions. BSEE is publishing this notice to update the system manager address, revise the policies and practices for storage of records section, remove use of a cloud provider in the administrative, technical and physical safeguards section, and make administrative updates to comply with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–108, Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act. Additionally, BSEE is changing the routine uses from a numeric to an alphabetic list and modifying routine uses A, B, and I to provide additional clarification on external organizations or comply with Federal requirements. Routine use A was modified to further clarify disclosures to the Department of Justice or other Federal agencies when necessary in relation to litigation or judicial proceedings. Modified routine use B clarifies disclosures to a congressional office to respond to or resolve an individual’s request made to that office. Modified routine use I allows BSEE to share information with an expert, consultant, grantee, or contractor (including employees of the contractor) of DOI that performs services requiring access to these records on DOI’s behalf to carry out the purposes of the system. BSEE is also proposing to modify routine use J and add new routine use K to allow BSEE to share information with appropriate Federal agencies or entities when reasonably necessary to respond to a breach of personally identifiable information and to prevent, minimize, or remedy the risk of harm to individuals or the Federal Government, or assist an agency in locating individuals affected by a breach in accordance with OMB Memorandum M–17–12, Preparing for and Responding to a Breach of Personally Identifiable Information. This system contains investigatory records related to law enforcement activities that are exempt from certain provisions of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2). On January 10, 2020, DOI published a final rule in the Federal Register at 85 FR 1282 to amend the DOI Privacy Act regulations at 43 CFR 2.254. This allows DOI, on a case-by- VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:19 Sep 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 case basis, to withhold records from individuals seeking their records. II. Privacy Act The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, embodies fair information practice principles in a statutory framework governing the means by which Federal agencies collect, maintain, use, and disseminate individuals’ records. The Privacy Act applies to records about individuals that are maintained in a ‘‘system of records.’’ A ‘‘system of records’’ is a group of any records under the control of an agency from which information is retrieved by the name of an individual or by some identifying number, symbol, or other identifying particular assigned to the individual. The Privacy Act defines an individual as a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident. Individuals may request access to their own records that are maintained in a system of records in the possession or under the control of DOI by complying with DOI Privacy Act regulations at 43 CFR part 2, subpart K, and following the procedures outlined in the Records Access, Contesting Record, and Notification Procedures sections of this notice. The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish in the Federal Register a description denoting the existence and character of each system of records that the agency maintains and the routine uses of each system. The revised INTERIOR/BSEE–01, Investigations Case Management System, system of records notice is published in its entirety below. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DOI has provided a report of this system of records to OMB and to Congress. III. Public Participation You should be aware your entire comment including your personally identifiable information, such as your address, phone number, email address, or any other personal information in your comment, may be made publicly available at any time. While you may request to withhold your personally identifiable information from public review, we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    BSEE maintains the BSEE-01, Investigations Case Management System 
(CMS), system of records. The purpose of this system of records is to 
manage, track and report civil administrative investigations related to 
operations on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). BSEE conducts 
investigations on safety concerns, environmental risks and incidents 
which includes but is not limited to reportable injuries, the loss or 
damage of property, and possible violations of Federal laws and 
regulations.
    While BSEE conducts civil administrative investigations rather than 
criminal investigations the Bureau may make referrals of possible 
criminal activity to internal and external law enforcement 
organizations as appropriate for investigation. Records include known 
or suspected civil violations; information related to possible criminal 
activities; incident-related information and observations from other 
sources; protection efforts; information to justify funding requests 
and expenditures; investigator training; referrals and/or 
recommendations related to incident investigations; and evidence.
    Incident and non-incident data related to activity occurring on the 
OCS is collected in support of investigations, regulatory enforcement, 
homeland security, and security (physical, personnel, stability, 
environmental, and

[[Page 51915]]

industrial) activities. This may include data documenting investigation 
activities, enforcement recommendations, recommendation results, 
property damage, injuries and fatalities, and analytical or statistical 
reports. CMS allows for BSEE management to make informed decisions on 
recommendations for enforcement, civil penalties, and other 
administrative actions.
    BSEE is publishing this notice to update the system manager 
address, revise the policies and practices for storage of records 
section, remove use of a cloud provider in the administrative, 
technical and physical safeguards section, and make administrative 
updates to comply with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
Circular A-108, Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, 
and Publication under the Privacy Act.
    Additionally, BSEE is changing the routine uses from a numeric to 
an alphabetic list and modifying routine uses A, B, and I to provide 
additional clarification on external organizations or comply with 
Federal requirements. Routine use A was modified to further clarify 
disclosures to the Department of Justice or other Federal agencies when 
necessary in relation to litigation or judicial proceedings. Modified 
routine use B clarifies disclosures to a congressional office to 
respond to or resolve an individual's request made to that office. 
Modified routine use I allows BSEE to share information with an expert, 
consultant, grantee, or contractor (including employees of the 
contractor) of DOI that performs services requiring access to these 
records on DOI's behalf to carry out the purposes of the system. BSEE 
is also proposing to modify routine use J and add new routine use K to 
allow BSEE to share information with appropriate Federal agencies or 
entities when reasonably necessary to respond to a breach of personally 
identifiable information and to prevent, minimize, or remedy the risk 
of harm to individuals or the Federal Government, or assist an agency 
in locating individuals affected by a breach in accordance with OMB 
Memorandum M-17-12, Preparing for and Responding to a Breach of 
Personally Identifiable Information.
    This system contains investigatory records related to law 
enforcement activities that are exempt from certain provisions of the 
Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2). On January 10, 2020, DOI published a 
final rule in the Federal Register at 85 FR 1282 to amend the DOI 
Privacy Act regulations at 43 CFR 2.254. This allows DOI, on a case-by-
case basis, to withhold records from individuals seeking their records.

II. Privacy Act

    The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, embodies fair information 
practice principles in a statutory framework governing the means by 
which Federal agencies collect, maintain, use, and disseminate 
individuals' records. The Privacy Act applies to records about 
individuals that are maintained in a ``system of records.'' A ``system 
of records'' is a group of any records under the control of an agency 
from which information is retrieved by the name of an individual or by 
some identifying number, symbol, or other identifying particular 
assigned to the individual. The Privacy Act defines an individual as a 
United States citizen or lawful permanent resident. Individuals may 
request access to their own records that are maintained in a system of 
records in the possession or under the control of DOI by complying with 
DOI Privacy Act regulations at 43 CFR part 2, subpart K, and following 
the procedures outlined in the Records Access, Contesting Record, and 
Notification Procedures sections of this notice.
    The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish in the Federal 
Register a description denoting the existence and character of each 
system of records that the agency maintains and the routine uses of 
each system. The revised INTERIOR/BSEE-01, Investigations Case 
Management System, system of records notice is published in its 
entirety below. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DOI has provided a 
report of this system of records to OMB and to Congress.

III. Public Participation

    You should be aware your entire comment including your personally 
identifiable information, such as your address, phone number, email 
address, or any other personal information in your comment, may be made 
publicly available at any time. While you may request to withhold your 
personally identifiable information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee we will be able to do so.

employment opportunities requiring background checks.

DISCLOSURE TO CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCIES:
    None.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS:
    Records are stored in electronic media and paper files. All records 
are accessed only by authorized personnel who have a need to access the 
records in the performance of their official duties. Paper records are 
contained in file folders and stored in locked file cabinets. Records 
obtained in a paper format and converted into electronic files in CMS 
may be temporarily stored or accessed on DOI network computers, email 
systems, and approved removable hard drives.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETRIEVAL OF RECORDS:
    Information may be retrieved by first name, middle name, or last 
name, home and work addresses, personal and official phone numbers, 
personal and official email addresses, employer information, and 
associated case or activity number.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF RECORDS:
    Records in this system are maintained under BSEE Bucket 5--
Regulatory Oversight and Stewardship (N1-473-12-5), which has been 
approved by NARA. Records maintained under Item 5F(2)(a), Major 
Incident Investigative Records, include final reports that document 
major incidents requiring investigative panels and other reports 
selected as significant by BSEE, and have a permanent retention. 
Electronic records are transferred to NARA 15 years after cut-off, and 
hardcopy reports are transferred to NARA 25 years after cut-off. 
Records maintained under Item 5F(2)(b), All Other Incident 
Investigative and Related Records, include records that do not result 
in the appointment of a panel or are not selected as significant by 
BSEE. These records have a temporary disposition and are destroyed 25 
years after cut-off. Other administrative records are maintained under 
BSEE Bucket-1, Administrative Records (N1-473-12-001), which has been 
approved by NARA. Records maintained under Item IG(1), Administrative 
Function Files/Audits and Investigation Files, have a temporary 
disposition, and are cut off at the end of the fiscal year when 
activity is completed and destroyed 10 years after cut off. Approved 
disposition methods for temporary records include shredding or pulping 
paper records, and erasing or degaussing electronic records in 
accordance with NARA guidelines and Departmental policy.

ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS:
    The records contained in this system are safeguarded in accordance 
with 43 CFR 2.226 and other applicable security rules and policies. 
During normal hours of operation, paper records are maintained in 
locked file cabinets under the control of authorized personnel. 
Computerized records systems follow the National Institute of Standards 
and Technology standards as developed to comply with the Privacy Act of 
1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a; Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-
3521; Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014, 44 U.S.C. 
3551-3558; and the Federal Information Processing Standards 199: 
Standards for Security Categorization of Federal Information and 
Information Systems. Computer servers in which electronic records are 
stored are located in secured contractor facilities with physical, 
technical and administrative levels of security to prevent unauthorized 
access to the network and information assets. Security controls include 
encryption, firewalls, audit logs, and network system security 
monitoring.
    Access to records in the system is limited to authorized personnel 
who have a need to access the records in the performance of their 
official duties. Electronic data is protected through user 
identification such as usernames, passwords, database permissions and 
software controls. These security measures establish different access 
levels for different types of users. Each user's access is restricted 
to only the functions and data necessary to perform their job 
responsibilities.
    System administrators and authorized users are trained and required 
to follow established internal security protocols, complete all 
security, privacy, and records management training, and sign the DOI 
Rules of Behavior. Contract employees with access to the system must 
also complete mandatory security and privacy training, sign DOI Rules 
of Behavior, and are monitored by their Contracting Officer 
Representative and the agency Security Manager.

RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES:
    DOI has exempted portions of this system from the access procedures 
of the Privacy Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2). DOI will make 
access determinations on a case by case basis.
    An individual requesting records on himself or herself should send 
a signed, written inquiry to the System Manager identified above. The 
request should describe the records sought as specifically as possible. 
The request envelope and letter should both be

[[Page 51918]]

clearly marked ``PRIVACY ACT REQUEST FOR ACCESS.'' A request for access 
must meet the requirements of 43 CFR 2.238.

CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES:
    DOI has exempted portions of this system from the amendment 
procedures of the Privacy Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2). DOI will 
make amendment determinations on a case by case basis.
    An individual requesting corrections or the removal of material 
from his or her records should send a signed, written request to the 
System Manager identified above. A request for corrections or removal 
must meet the requirements of 43 CFR 2.246.

NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES:
    DOI has exempted portions of this system from the notification 
procedures of the Privacy Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2). DOI will 
make notification determinations on a case by case basis.
    An individual requesting notification of the existence of records 
on himself or herself should send a signed, written inquiry to the 
System Manager identified above. The request envelope and letter should 
both be clearly marked ``PRIVACY ACT INQUIRY.'' A request for 
notification must meet the requirements of 43 CFR 2.235.

EXEMPTIONS PROMULGATED FOR THE SYSTEM:
    This system contains civil and administrative law enforcement 
investigatory records that are exempt from certain provisions of the 
Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2). Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2) of 
the Privacy Act, DOI has exempted portions of this system from the 
following subsections of the Privacy Act: (c)(3), (d), (e)(1), 
(e)(4)(G), (H) and (I), and (f). In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(b), 
(c) and (e), DOI promulgated a rule, which was published in the Federal 
Register at 85 FR 1282 (January 10, 2020), to amend the DOI Privacy Act 
regulations at 43 CFR 2.254 to claim exemptions for this system.
    Additionally, the CMS may contain records from numerous sources 
compiled for investigatory purposes. To the extent that copies of 
records from other source systems of records are exempt from certain 
provisions of the Privacy Act, DOI claims the same exemptions for those 
records that are claimed for the original primary systems of records 
from which they originated.
    The exemptions from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act may 
be waived on a case-by-case basis where a release would not interfere 
with or adversely affect investigations or enforcement activities.
