Notice of Order of Investigation and Hearing. AGENCY: Jkt 256001 AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission (FTC). ACTION: Notice of modified systems of records. The FTC is making technical revisions to several of the notices that it has published under the Privacy Act of 1974 to describe its systems of records. This action is intended to make these notices clearer, more accurate, and upto-date. DATES: This notice shall become final and effective on January 7, 2022. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: G. Richard Gold, Attorney, Office of the General Counsel, FTC, 600 SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20580, (202) 326–3355. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To inform the public, the FTC publishes in the Federal Register and posts on its website a ‘‘system of records notice’’ (SORN) for each system of records that the FTC currently maintains within the meaning of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a (‘‘Privacy Act’’ or ‘‘Act’’). See https://www.ftc.gov/ about-ftc/foia/foia-reading-rooms/ privacy-act-systems. The Privacy Act protects records about individuals in systems of records collected and maintained by Federal agencies. (A system is not a ‘‘system of records’’ under the Act unless the agency maintains and retrieves records in the system by the relevant individual’s name or other personally assigned identifier.) Each Federal agency, including the FTC, must publish a SORN that describes the records maintained in each of its Privacy Act systems, including the categories of individuals that the records in the system are about where and how the agency maintains these records, and how individuals can find out whether an agency system contains any records about them or request access to their records, if any. The FTC, for example, maintains 40 systems of records under the Act. Some of these systems contain records about the FTC’s own employees, such as personnel and payroll files. Other FTC systems contain records about members of the public, such as public comments, consumer complaints, or phone numbers submitted to the FTC’s Do Not Call Registry. The FTC’s SORNs discussed in this notice apply only to the FTC’s own Privacy Act record systems. They do not cover Privacy Act records that other Federal agencies may collect and maintain in their own systems. Likewise, the FTC’s SORNs and the Privacy Act of 1974 do not cover personal records that private businesses or other non-FTC entities may collect, which may be covered by other privacy laws. On June 12, 2008, the FTC republished and updated all of its SORNs, describing all of the agency’s systems of records covered by the Privacy Act in a single document for ease of use and reference. See 73 FR 33592. To ensure the SORNs remain accurate, FTC staff reviews each SORN on a periodic basis. As a result of this systematic review, the FTC made revisions to several of its SORNs on April 17, 2009 (74 FR 17863), August 27, 2010 (75 FR 52749), February 23, 2015 (80 FR 9460), November 2, 2017 E:\FR\FM\07JAN1.SGM 07JAN1 965 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 5 / Friday, January 7, 2022 / Notices tkelley on DSK125TN23PROD with NOTICE (82 FR 50871), November 6, 2018 (83 FR 55541), April 19, 2019 (84 FR 16493) and March 23, 2020 (85 FR 16361). Based on a periodic review of its SORNs, the FTC is publishing these additional technical revisions, to ensure that the FTC’s SORNs and Appendices remain clear, accurate, and up-to-date: • First, the FTC is amending several SORNs to clarify or update information about the applicable records disposition schedules published or approved by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). These schedules determine how long agency records in each system should be retained and destroyed. • Second, the FTC is amending multiple SORNs to make other technical changes (e.g., updating the official title of the system manager, the authority for maintenance of the system, and the policies and practices for storage of records). • Third, the FTC is republishing the full text of each of the above SORNs, incorporating the technical amendments, for the convenience of the reader and in accordance with OMB Circular A–108 (2016), which reorganized the format and content for SORNs published by Federal agencies. The FTC is not substantively adding or amending any routine uses of its Privacy Act system records. Accordingly, the FTC is not required to provide prior public comment or notice to OMB or Congress for these technical amendments, which are final upon publication. See 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11) and 552a(r); OMB Circular A–108, supra. A SORN-by-SORN summary, including a more detailed description of each SORN and how it is being amended, appears below, followed by the full text of the SORNs, as amended. I. Federal Trade Commission Law Enforcement Systems of Records FTC–I–2 (Disciplinary Action Investigatory Files—FTC). This SORN covers records compiled to determine whether the FTC should refer an individual practicing before the FTC to appropriate authorities for alleged ethical or other misconduct. The Commission has updated the System Manager from formerly being the Deputy General Counsel for Legal Counsel to now being the Principal Deputy General Counsel. We have also updated the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records. FTC–I–3 (Informal Advisory Opinion Request and Response Files—FTC). This SORN covers the records of individuals who have requested informal advisory opinions from the FTC staff and records VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Jan 06, 2022 Jkt 256001 of the responses to such requests. We have updated the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records. FTC–I–4 (Clearance Applications and Response Files—FTC). This SORN covers records of individuals who have requested clearance to participate or appear on behalf of other parties in FTC matters, and records of the FTC’s responses to such requests. We have updated the title for the System Manager from Deputy General Counsel to Designated Agency Ethics Official. We have also updated the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records. FTC–I–6 (Public Records—FTC). This SORN covers the FTC’s system of public records, which includes comments submitted by consumers and others in rulemakings, workshops, or other FTC proceedings. The FTC makes these public records routinely available for public inspection and copying, including by posting copies of such records on the internet. Most public comments are collected for the FTC by the government-wide Federal Docket Management System (FDMS), through www.regulations.gov, which is now maintained and operated on behalf of all Federal agencies by the General Services Administration (GSA). The FTC’s SORN has been updated to show that the GSA is the inter-agency service provider for FDMS and that FDMS is covered by a GSA SORN. We have also updated the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records. II. Federal Trade Commission Personnel Systems of Records FTC–II–7 (Ethics Program Records— FTC). This SORN covers annual financial statements and other filings or requests made by FTC officials and employees under the FTC’s ethics program.

The corresponding DOT SORN is DOT/ALL 8 (Employee Transportation Facilitation). See 80 FR 64493–64495 (2015). The Commission has updated the official title of the FTC system manager. The Commission is also updating the section on Retention and Disposal to cite the applicable General Records Schedule that was recently approved by NARA for governmentwide use. VII. FTC Miscellaneous Systems of Records FTC–VII–3 (Computer Systems User Identification and Access Records— FTC). This SORN covers records that the FTC maintains on individual users of computer systems operated by the FTC or on its behalf in order to monitor and control their usage of such systems. The FTC has updated the Authority for Maintenance of the System. FTC–VII–6 (Document Management and Retrieval System—FTC). This SORN covers legacy and current electronic data collections of FTC memoranda and other agency records that may be managed by and retrieved by the author’s name or other personal identifiers. We have updated the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records. FTC Systems of Records Notices In light of the updated SORN template set forth in the revised OMB Circular A–108 (2016), the FTC is reprinting the entire text of each amended SORN when necessary for the public’s benefit, to read as follows: I.

Proposed Project Evaluating the Association between Serum Concentrations of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) and Symptoms and Diagnoses of Selected Acute Viral Illnesses—New—Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background and Brief Description Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large, diverse group of thousands of chemicals that have been used extensively in a wide range of industrial and consumer applications. Epidemiological studies have evaluated the associations between PFAS exposure and health effects in humans. Evidence from these studies in occupationally exposed populations, residential populations exposed to higher levels of PFAS in drinking water, and studies in the general population suggest associations between PFAS and several health outcomes. Exposure to PFAS is nearly ubiquitous in the United States. Epidemiological studies suggest that PFAS exposure may impact the immune system and susceptibility to viral infections. However, there is little consistency in the results of studies on PFAS exposure and infectious disease. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID– 19) pandemic presents a unique concern and opportunity to explore this association. If PFAS affect the immune system, it is possible that they could affect susceptibility to infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS–CoV–2), the virus that causes COVID–19, or could affect severity of COVID–19 symptoms. In 2019 and 2020, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) conducted statistically based biomonitoring PFAS exposure assessments (EAs) in eight communities that had documented exposures to PFAS in drinking water. ATSDR also supported two EAs that were designed to test the PFAS Exposure Assessment Technical Tools (PEATT). PFAS concentrations were measured in serum collected from EA and PEATT assessment participants, and a questionnaire was administered to gather information to characterize each individual’s exposure. These communities were investigated under ‘‘Per- or Polyfluoroalkyl Substances Exposure Assessments [PFAS EAs]’’ (OMB Control No. 0923–0059, expiration date 06/30/2022). During the same period, ATSDR initiated a health study at the Pease International Tradeport that included measurement of PFAS serum levels and collection of information about individual exposures in participants under ‘‘Human Health Effects of Drinking Water Exposures to Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) at Pease International Tradeport, Portsmouth, NH (The Pease Study)’’ (OMB Control No. 0923–0061, expiration date 08/31/2022).

FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION


Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

ACTION: Notice of modified systems of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FTC is making technical revisions to several of the 
notices that it has published under the Privacy Act of 1974 to describe 
its systems of records. This action is intended to make these notices 
clearer, more accurate, and up-to-date.

DATES: This notice shall become final and effective on January 7, 2022.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: G. Richard Gold, Attorney, Office of 
the General Counsel, FTC, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 
20580, (202) 326-3355.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To inform the public, the FTC publishes in 
the Federal Register and posts on its website a ``system of records 
notice'' (SORN) for each system of records that the FTC currently 
maintains within the meaning of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 
U.S.C. 552a (``Privacy Act'' or ``Act''). See https://www.ftc.gov/about-ftc/foia/foia-reading-rooms/privacy-act-systems. The Privacy Act 
protects records about individuals in systems of records collected and 
maintained by Federal agencies. (A system is not a ``system of 
records'' under the Act unless the agency maintains and retrieves 
records in the system by the relevant individual's name or other 
personally assigned identifier.) Each Federal agency, including the 
FTC, must publish a SORN that describes the records maintained in each 
of its Privacy Act systems, including the categories of individuals 
that the records in the system are about where and how the agency 
maintains these records, and how individuals can find out whether an 
agency system contains any records about them or request access to 
their records, if any. The FTC, for example, maintains 40 systems of 
records under the Act. Some of these systems contain records about the 
FTC's own employees, such as personnel and payroll files. Other FTC 
systems contain records about members of the public, such as public 
comments, consumer complaints, or phone numbers submitted to the FTC's 
Do Not Call Registry.
    The FTC's SORNs discussed in this notice apply only to the FTC's 
own Privacy Act record systems. They do not cover Privacy Act records 
that other Federal agencies may collect and maintain in their own 
systems. Likewise, the FTC's SORNs and the Privacy Act of 1974 do not 
cover personal records that private businesses or other non-FTC 
entities may collect, which may be covered by other privacy laws.
    On June 12, 2008, the FTC republished and updated all of its SORNs, 
describing all of the agency's systems of records covered by the 
Privacy Act in a single document for ease of use and reference. See 73 
FR 33592. To ensure the SORNs remain accurate, FTC staff reviews each 
SORN on a periodic basis. As a result of this systematic review, the 
FTC made revisions to several of its SORNs on April 17, 2009 (74 FR 
17863), August 27, 2010 (75 FR 52749), February 23, 2015 (80 FR 9460), 
November 2, 2017

[[Page 965]]

(82 FR 50871), November 6, 2018 (83 FR 55541), April 19, 2019 (84 FR 
16493) and March 23, 2020 (85 FR 16361).
    Based on a periodic review of its SORNs, the FTC is publishing 
these additional technical revisions, to ensure that the FTC's SORNs 
and Appendices remain clear, accurate, and up-to-date:
     First, the FTC is amending several SORNs to clarify or 
update information about the applicable records disposition schedules 
published or approved by the National Archives and Records 
Administration (NARA). These schedules determine how long agency 
records in each system should be retained and destroyed.
     Second, the FTC is amending multiple SORNs to make other 
technical changes (e.g., updating the official title of the system 
manager, the authority for maintenance of the system, and the policies 
and practices for storage of records).
     Third, the FTC is republishing the full text of each of 
the above SORNs, incorporating the technical amendments, for the 
convenience of the reader and in accordance with OMB Circular A-108 
(2016), which reorganized the format and content for SORNs published by 
Federal agencies.
    The FTC is not substantively adding or amending any routine uses of 
its Privacy Act system records. Accordingly, the FTC is not required to 
provide prior public comment or notice to OMB or Congress for these 
technical amendments, which are final upon publication. See 5 U.S.C. 
552a(e)(11) and 552a(r); OMB Circular A-108, supra.
    A SORN-by-SORN summary, including a more detailed description of 
each SORN and how it is being amended, appears below, followed by the 
full text of the SORNs, as amended.

I. Federal Trade Commission Law Enforcement Systems of Records

    FTC-I-2 (Disciplinary Action Investigatory Files--FTC). This SORN 
covers records compiled to determine whether the FTC should refer an 
individual practicing before the FTC to appropriate authorities for 
alleged ethical or other misconduct. The Commission has updated the 
System Manager from formerly being the Deputy General Counsel for Legal 
Counsel to now being the Principal Deputy General Counsel. We have also 
updated the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records.
    FTC-I-3 (Informal Advisory Opinion Request and Response Files--
FTC). This SORN covers the records of individuals who have requested 
informal advisory opinions from the FTC staff and records of the 
responses to such requests. We have updated the section for Policies 
and Practices for Storage of Records.
    FTC-I-4 (Clearance Applications and Response Files--FTC). This SORN 
covers records of individuals who have requested clearance to 
participate or appear on behalf of other parties in FTC matters, and 
records of the FTC's responses to such requests. We have updated the 
title for the System Manager from Deputy General Counsel to Designated 
Agency Ethics Official. We have also updated the section for Policies 
and Practices for Storage of Records.
    FTC-I-6 (Public Records--FTC). This SORN covers the FTC's system of 
public records, which includes comments submitted by consumers and 
others in rulemakings, workshops, or other FTC proceedings. The FTC 
makes these public records routinely available for public inspection 
and copying, including by posting copies of such records on the 
internet. Most public comments are collected for the FTC by the 
government-wide Federal Docket Management System (FDMS), through 
www.regulations.gov, which is now maintained and operated on behalf of 
all Federal agencies by the General Services Administration (GSA). The 
FTC's SORN has been updated to show that the GSA is the inter-agency 
service provider for FDMS and that FDMS is covered by a GSA SORN. We 
have also updated the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of 
Records.

II. Federal Trade Commission Personnel Systems of Records

    FTC-II-7 (Ethics Program Records--FTC). This SORN covers annual 
financial statements and other filings or requests made by FTC 
officials and employees under the FTC's ethics program. The Commission 
is updating the section on Retention and Disposal to cite the 
applicable General Records Schedule that was recently approved by NARA 
for government-wide use.
    FTC-II-9 (Claimants Under Federal Tort Claims Act and Military 
Personnel and Civilian Employees' Claims Act--FTC). This SORN covers 
records generated by tort claims and other claims filed with the FTC by 
its employees or others under the named statutes. The FTC is updating 
the section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records.

III. Federal Trade Commission Financial Systems of Records

    FTC-III-5 (Employee Transportation Program Records--FTC). This SORN 
covers records relating to FTC employee transportation programs, 
including programs administered by the Department of Transportation 
(DOT) that cover certain commuting costs. The corresponding DOT SORN is 
DOT/ALL 8 (Employee Transportation Facilitation). See 80 FR 64493-64495 
(2015). The Commission has updated the official title of the FTC system 
manager. The Commission is also updating the section on Retention and 
Disposal to cite the applicable General Records Schedule that was 
recently approved by NARA for government-wide use.

VII. FTC Miscellaneous Systems of Records

    FTC-VII-3 (Computer Systems User Identification and Access 
Records--FTC). This SORN covers records that the FTC maintains on 
individual users of computer systems operated by the FTC or on its 
behalf in order to monitor and control their usage of such systems. The 
FTC has updated the Authority for Maintenance of the System.
    FTC-VII-6 (Document Management and Retrieval System--FTC). This 
SORN covers legacy and current electronic data collections of FTC 
memoranda and other agency records that may be managed by and retrieved 
by the author's name or other personal identifiers. We have updated the 
section for Policies and Practices for Storage of Records.

FTC Systems of Records Notices

    Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. 41 et seq.; Executive Order 
10450; Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552; 16 CFR 4.9.

PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM:
    To make appropriate portions of the records in FTC matters 
available to the public; to enable members of the public to review and 
comment on or respond to such comments; to maintain records of 
Commission activities related to those matters.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    Participants in Commission investigations, rulemaking, advisory, 
and law enforcement proceedings; parties requesting formal advisory

applicable ethics-related laws, rules, and Executive Orders.

PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM:
    To meet Federal requirements regarding the filing of employment and 
financial interest statements; and to assist senior Commission 
employees and members of the General Counsel's Office to review 
statements of employment and financial interests to ascertain whether a 
conflict of interest or apparent conflict of interest exists and, if

non-Federal sources; to comply with other ethics program requirements 
under Federal law, policy and regulation.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    Commission officials and employees required by FTC regulations to 
file statements of employment and financial interests, to enter into 
ethics agreements, or to obtain clearance or approval for travel 
reimbursements or outside employment. This system corresponds to the 
systems described and covered by the Government-wide system of record 
notices (SORNs) issued by the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) for 
agency ethics program records. See OGE/GOVT-1 (Executive Branch 
Personnel Public Financial disclosure Reports and Other Name-Retrieved 
Ethics Program Records); OGE/GOVT-2 (Executive Branch Confidential 
Financial Disclosure Reports). Visit OGE's website, www.oge.gov, for 
more information.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    Statements of employment and financial interests (containing name, 
organization, statement of personal and family holdings and other 
interests in business enterprises and real property, listings of 
creditors and outside employment, opinions of counsel, and other 
information related to conflict of interest disclosures and 
determinations); ethics agreements; and other disclosure forms. This 
system also includes FTC employee requests for and documentation of 
ethics clearance or approval of travel reimbursements or outside 
employment, as well as other name-retrieved ethics records on FTC 
employees.

RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES:
    The subject individual or a designated person, such as a trustee, 
attorney, accountant, banker, or relative; federal officials who review 
the statements to make conflict of interest determinations; and persons 
alleging conflict of interests or violations of other ethics laws and 
persons contacted during any investigation of the allegations.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES 
OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:
    Records in this system may be disclosed for any of the routine uses 
set forth in OGE/GOVT-1 and OGE/GOVT-2, as applicable. In addition, 
records in this system may be disclosed to a source when necessary to 
obtain information relevant to a conflict of interest investigation or 
determination.

Administration General Records Schedule for ethics program records, 
these records are generally retained for a period of six years after 
filing, or for such other period of time as is provided for in that 
schedule for certain specified types of ethics records. In cases where 
records are filed by, or with respect to, a nominee for an appointment 
requiring confirmation by the Senate when the nominee is not appointed 
and Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates who are not elected, 
the records are generally destroyed one year after the date the 
individual ceased being under Senate consideration for appointment or 
is no longer a candidate for office. However, if any records are needed 
in an ongoing investigation, they will be retained until no longer 
needed in the investigation. Destruction is by shredding, use of burn 
bags, or electronic deletion.

ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS:
    Access is restricted to agency personnel and contractors whose 
responsibilities require access. Paper records are maintained in 
lockable file cabinets and offices. Access to electronic records is 
controlled by ``user ID'' and password combination and other access and 
network controls (e.g., firewalls). FTC buildings are guarded and

III. Federal Trade Commission Financial Systems of Records

SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER:
    Employee Transportation Program Records--FTC (FTC-III-5).

SECURITY CLASSIFICATION:
    Unclassified.

SYSTEM LOCATION:
    Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, 
DC 20580. For other locations where records may be maintained or 
accessed, see Appendix III (Locations of FTC Buildings and Regional 
Offices), available on the FTC's website at https://www.ftc.gov/about-ftc/foia/foia-reading-rooms/privacy-act-systems and at 80 FR 9460, 9465 
(Feb. 23, 2015).

SYSTEM MANAGER(S):
    Chief Administrative Services Officer, Office of the Chief 
Administrative Services Officer, Office of the Executive Director, 
Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 
20580, email: [email protected].

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:
    5 U.S.C. 7905 note; Public Law 103-172; Executive Order 13150.

PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM:
    Transit subsidy records are collected and maintained to implement 
Federal law encouraging Federal employees to use public transportation 
for commuting to and from work. Such records are used to authorize 
subsidies for qualified FTC employees to help cover such commuting 
costs; to ensure the accurate and timely disbursement of subsidies to 
such employees; and to audit and otherwise detect or prevent fraud or 
abuse, if any, of such subsidies. Other employee transportation program 
records may be collected and maintained to administer those programs, 
including for building security purposes (e.g., drivers' license 
numbers maintained for individuals who have been issued garage parking 
permits).

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    Past and present FTC employees who have applied for public 
transportation subsidies to commute for work, or who may apply to 
participate in other employee transportation-related programs (e.g., 
parking garage permits) that the DOT or FTC may administer from time to 
time, if any.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    Data that the FTC may compile, generate, and maintain in connection 
with reviewing and approving transit subsidy applications filed by 
eligible FTC employees with the online system operated by Department of 
Transportation (DOT), which administers and distributes Federal transit 
subsidies.
    This FTC system notice applies to application data about FTC 
employees that the FTC may access from DOT's system, or that the FTC 
may itself generate, in reviewing and approving transit subsidies 
requested by its employees, or to audit and verify transit 
disbursements made to such employees, to the extent the FTC maintains 
and retrieves this data from its own system of records by employee name 
or other identifier assigned to such individuals. This system notice 
does not cover the transit application data compiled and maintained by 
DOT, which is covered by DOT's system notice. See DOT/ALL 8 (Employee 
Transportation Facilitation), or any successor system notice for that 
system, for the categories of records maintained in DOT's system.

RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES:
    Past and current FTC employees who have applied to participate in 
the subsidy program; FTC offices; Department of Transportation.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES 
OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:
    Records in this system:
    (1) May be disclosed to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) 
for purposes of processing and distributing subsidies to FTC employees 
and verifying employee compliance with program rules, and may be used 
and disclosed by DOT under the routine uses set forth in the applicable 
DOT system notice, DOT/ALL 8 (Employee Transportation Facilitation), or 
any successor system notice for that system; and
    (2) May be disclosed to other investigatory or law enforcement 
authorities, where necessary, to investigate, prosecute, discipline, or 
pursue other appropriate action against suspected program fraud or 
abuse, if any.
    For other ways that the Privacy Act permits the FTC to use or 
disclose system records outside the agency, see Appendix I (Authorized 
Disclosures and Routine Uses Applicable to All FTC Privacy Act Systems 
of Records), available on the FTC's website at https://www.ftc.gov/about-ftc/foia/foia-reading-rooms/privacy-act-systems and at 83 FR 
55542-55543 (Nov. 6, 2018).
