Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2020-06914
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-04-02
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) is modifying the System of Records, Mandatory Declassification Review Files, DWHS E05. This system was established to verify and declassify record requests from the public and to provide a resource to research historical data. Without the ability to review and declassify data in the Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR) Files System of Records, information in the system would not be releasable to the public and the DoD would not comply with the applicable regulations and laws. Updates to this system include administrative changes required by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-108, ``Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act,'' revised December 23, 2016. This modification includes changes to the system name, authorities, purpose, categories of records, routine uses, storage of records, retention and disposal of records, safeguards, records access procedures, contesting record procedures, notification procedures, and exemptions sections. In addition, the only exemption claimed for the system, (k)(1), is being deleted, since the system does not contain classified information. The records undergoing MDR are stored in a separate system, which is not a Privacy Act System of Records.
Notice of Intent To Prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report for the Sacramento Weir Component (Yolo County, California) of the American River Watershed Common Features Project, as Authorized Under the Water Resources Development Act of 2016
Document Number: 2020-06812
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-04-01
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Sacramento District, and the Central Valley Flood Protection Board is preparing a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (Draft Supplemental EIS/EIR) for the Sacramento Weir widening component of the American River Watershed Common Features (ARCF) Levee Improvement Project authorized by the Water Resources Development Act of 2016. This Draft Supplemental EIS/EIR supplements the ARCF General Reevaluation Report (GRR) Final EIS/EIR. The Proposed Action includes constructing a 1,500-foot-long passive weir, with associated levee, roadway, rail bridge, and fish passage improvements adjacent to the existing Sacramento Weir at the junction of the Sacramento River and Sacramento Bypass. Conceptual components of the Proposed Action were analyzed in the ARCF GRR Final EIS/EIR but some elements of the Proposed Action (passive weir design and fish passage structure) were not analyzed in the ARCF GRR Final EIS/EIR because final designs are still in progress. USACE has now developed two alternative project designs in sufficient detail to analyze their environmental effects: A passive weir structure with a crest elevation at 26 feet on the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88) (the Proposed Action), and a passive weir structure with a crest elevation at 26 feet NAVD88, with stop logs to raise the crest elevation to 29.8 feet NAVD88 (the Higher Weir Elevation Alternative). Both design alternatives would reduce the flood risk in and around the cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento by conveying additional Sacramento River flow during flood events into the Sacramento and Yolo Bypasses.
Notice of Intent To Prepare a Draft Supplemental Joint Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report for the 2007 Folsom Dam Safety and Flood Damage Reduction Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report
Document Number: 2020-06811
Type: Notice

Agency: Department of Defense
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District (USACE) intends to prepare a Draft Supplemental Joint Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the 2007 Folsom Dam Safety and Flood Damage Reduction EIS/EIR (2007 EIS/EIR) and the 2017 Folsom Dam Raise Project Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (2017 SEIS/EIR). USACE will serve as lead National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) agency and the Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB) will serve as lead agency for compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Folsom Dam Safety and Flood Damage Reduction Project (hereafter referred to as the Project) was originally authorized in the 2004 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act (EWDAA) and was later reauthorized in the 2007 Water Resources Development Act (WRDA). The Project is authorized for four components: (1) Emergency spillway gate modifications. (2) Raising the right and left wings of the main dam, Mormon Island Auxiliary Dam (MIAD), and the reservoir Dikes 1 through 8 by 3.5 feet. (3) Temperature control shutter automation and reconfiguration. (4) Downstream ecosystem restoration of Bushy Lake and Woodlake. This Draft Supplemental Joint EIS/EIR will address components of the authorized Project not previously addressed in the 2017 Folsom Dam Raise Project Final SEIS/EIR. Specifically, these components include construction of a new Dike 3, use of onsite borrow and multiple disposal locations including MIAD West and South and potential off-site locations, use of a rock crushing plant at MIAD East, use of on-site concrete batch plants for the Right Wing Dam and Left Wing Dam, and a detailed comprehensive plan for mitigation and restoration upon completion of construction. The flood risk management components of the Project will enhance the utilization of the existing surcharge flood storage space (temporary water storage space utilized during low- frequency flood events), and will increase the surcharge flood storage capacity of the reservoir.

Death Gratuity
Document Number: 2020-06694
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-04-01
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy
This final rule removes the Department of the Navy (DON) regulation requiring the Secretary of the Navy to pay a death gratuity between $800 and $3,000 upon the death of a member of the naval service while on active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty training. That benefit is enumerated in both U.S. Code and the Department of Defense (DoD) Financial Management Regulation. The DoD and DON have robust procedures for responding to the death of a service member. This part has been determined to be duplicative of statute and internal policy, thus it should be removed from the CFR.

Type: Notice
Date: 2020-03-18
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy
The United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy (Navy), after carefully weighing the strategic, operational, and environmental consequences of the Proposed Action, announces its decision to select Alternative 3 (Preferred Alternative) from the Fallon Range Training Complex (FRTC) Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Environmental), dated January 2020.

The Navy selected Alternative 3 because it best meets the purpose of and need for modernization while minimizing impacts on public access and land use. The Navy will implement management practices, monitoring, and mitigation measures to reduce potential impacts of the FRTC modernization.
Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2020-05504
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-03-17
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) proposes to add a System of Records titled, ``Defense Repository for Common Enterprise Data (DRCED),'' DUSDC 01. This system will automate financial and business transactions, perform cost-management analysis, produce oversight and audit reports, and provide critical data linking to improve performance of mission objectives. Congress mandated the creation of this system through the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018 and then codified it by statute as ``Defense Business Systems: Business Process Reengineering; Enterprise Architecture; Management.'' The DRCED's purpose is to improve the Department's defense business enterprise by synchronizing and normalizing data for affordability, performance, and mission readiness. To achieve this, the DRCED will optimize technology to provide an enterprise solution for integrating and analyzing targeted data from existing Department systems to develop timely, actionable, and insightful conclusions in support of national strategies. Also, DRCED is capable of creating predictive analytic models based upon specific data streams to equip decision makers with critical data necessary for execution of fiscal and operational requirements.

National Guard Bureau Privacy Program
Document Number: 2020-05049
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-03-17
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning the National Guard Bureau Privacy Program. On April 11, 2019, the Department of Defense published a revised DoD-level Privacy Program rule, which contains the necessary information for an agency-wide privacy program regulation under the Privacy Act and now serves as the single Privacy Program rule for the Department. That revised Privacy Program rule also includes all DoD component exemption rules. Therefore, this part is now unnecessary and may be removed from the CFR.
