Proposed Addition of a Routine Use to NSF Systems of Records
Document Number: 07-4049
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-08-20
Agency: National Science Foundation, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, the National Science Foundation is altering its existing systems of records in accordance with OMB Memorandum M-07-16, ``Safeguarding Against and Responding to the Breach of Personally Identifiable Information.'' M-07-16 calls on agencies to publish a routine use for appropriate systems specifically applying to the disclosure of information in connection with response and remedial efforts in the event of a data breach. A Federal agency's ability to respond quickly and effectively in the event of a breach of Federal data is critical to its efforts to prevent or minimize any consequent harm. An effective response may necessitate disclosure of information regarding the breach to those individuals affected by it, as well as to persons and entities in a position to cooperate, either by assisting in notification to affected individuals or playing a role in preventing or minimizing harms from the breach. The information to be disclosed to such persons and entities may be subject to the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a. The Privacy Act prohibits the disclosure of any record in a system of records absent the written consent of the subject individual, unless the disclosure falls within one of the twelve statutory exceptions, including a routine use, 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3). As described in the President's Identity Theft Task Force's Strategic Plan, all agencies should publish a routine use for their systems of records allowing for the disclosure of information in the course of responding to a breach of Federal data. See Appendix B of the Identity Theft Task Force report (http://www.identity theft.gov/ reports/StrategicPlan.pdf). Such a routine use will serve to protect the interests of the individuals whose information is at issue by allowing agencies to take appropriate steps to facilitate a timely and effective response, thereby improving their ability to prevent, minimize, or remedy any harm resulting from a compromise of data maintained in their systems of records. Accordingly, NSF proposes to add the following routine use to each of its Systems of Records Notices listed below:

Retirement Systems Modernization
Document Number: E7-16256
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-08-17
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing proposed rules to authorize alternative provisions for processing retirement and health and life insurance applications, notices, elections, and records under the agency's Retirement Systems Modernization (RSM) project. The RSM project is OPM's strategic e-Gov initiative to improve the quality and timeliness of services to employees and annuitants covered by the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS), as well as the Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (FEGLI), the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) and Retired Federal Employees Health Benefits (RFEHB) Programs, by modernizing business processes and the technology that supports them. Certain regulatory provisions governing the processing of benefits under CSRS, FERS, FEGLI, FEHB and RFEHB are incompatible with the effort to modernize retirement and insurance applications and claims processing. Therefore, exceptions from these provisions need to be authorized.
