Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2014-25834
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-30
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to add a new system of records, DPFPA 05, entitled ``Computer Aided Dispatch and Records Management System (CAD/RMS)'' to its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This system is used to record incident details related to PFPA investigations or inquiries into incidents under PFPA jurisdiction. Records may be used to develop threat analysis products, reports, and assessments on groups and individuals that have harmed, or have attempted harm; made direct or indirect threats; have a specific interest in high ranking Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) personnel, the DoD workforce, or the Pentagon Facilities; or have engaged in organized criminal activity that would impact the Pentagon Facilities. These records are also used to document incident updates (if additional evidence is gathered following initial contact).
Privacy Act of 1974; Implementation
Document Number: 2014-25833
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-30
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The Office of the Secretary of Defense is exempting those records contained in DPFPA 05, entitled ``Computer Aided Dispatch and Records Management System (CAD/RMS),'' pertaining to investigatory material compiled for law enforcement purposes (under (j)(2) of the Act) to enable OSD to conduct certain investigations and relay law enforcement information without compromise of the information, and protect investigative techniques and efforts employed, as well as investigatory material compiled for law enforcement purposes (under (k)(2) of the Act), other than material within the scope of subsection (k)(2) of the Privacy Act to enable the protection of identities of confidential sources who might not otherwise come forward and who furnished information under an express promise that the sources' identity would be held in confidence. The exemption will allow DoD to provide protection against notification of investigatory material including certain reciprocal investigations which might alert a subject to the fact that an investigation of that individual is taking place, and the disclosure of which would weaken the on-going investigation, reveal investigatory techniques, and place confidential informants in jeopardy who furnished information under an express promise that the sources' identity would be held in confidence. Further, requiring OSD to grant access to records and amend these records would unfairly impede the investigation of allegations of unlawful activities. To require OSD to confirm or deny the existence of a record pertaining to a requesting individual may in itself provide an answer to that individual relating to an on-going investigation. The investigation of possible unlawful activities would be jeopardized by agency rules requiring verification of record, disclosure of the record to the subject, and record amendment procedures.
Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2014-25820

Date: 2014-10-30

The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to alter a system of records, DWHS E05, entitled ``Mandatory Declassification Review Files'', in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This system is used to process requests and/or appeals from individuals for the mandatory review of classified documents for the purposes of releasing declassified material to the public; and to provide a research resource of historical data on release of records to ensure consistency in subsequent actions. Data developed from this system is used for the annual report required by the applicable Executive Order(s) governing classified National Security Information. This data also serves management needs, by providing information about the number of requests; the type or category of records required; and the average processing time.
