Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2014-26930
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-11-14
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy
The Department of the Navy proposes to alter the system of records, N06150-5, entitled ``Millennium Cohort Study'' in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This system will create a probability-based database of service members and veterans who have, or have not, deployed overseas so that various longitudinal health and research studies may be conducted over a 67-year period. The database will be used: a. To systematically collect population-based demographic and health data to evaluate the health of Armed Forces personnel throughout their careers and after leaving the service. b. To evaluate the impact of operational deployments on various measures of health over time including medically unexplained symptoms and chronic diseases to include cancer, heart disease and diabetes. c. To serve as a foundation upon which other routinely captured medical and deployment data may be added to answer future questions regarding the health risks of operational deployment, occupations, and general service in the Armed Forces. d. To examine characteristics of service in the Armed Forces associated with common clinician-diagnosed diseases and with scores on several standardized self-reported health inventories for physical and psychological functional status. e. To provide a data repository and available representative Armed Forces cohort that future investigators and policy makers might use to study important aspects of service in the Armed Forces including disease outcomes among an Armed Forces cohort. In addition to revealing changes in veterans' health status over time, the Millennium Cohort Study will serve as a data repository, providing a solid foundation upon which additional epidemiological studies may be constructed. f. To access the associations of military service on the health and well-being of military families, and to compare the adjusted probabilities of new onset diseases and conditions among military spouses.''
Finding of No Significant Impact and Final Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Army 2020 Force Structure Realignment
Document Number: 2014-26724
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-11-14
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army
The Department of the Army announces the availability of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FNSI) for implementation of force structure realignment to reduce the Army active duty end-strength from 562,000 at the end of Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 to 420,000 by FY 2020. The Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Army 2020 Force Structure Realignment (SPEA) supplements the 2013 Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA). After reviewing the SPEA and comments received during the public review period, the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army, G-3/5/7 has signed the FNSI that concluded there will be no significant environmental impacts, other than socioeconomic impacts, likely to result from the implementation of the Proposed Action under the alternative analyzed. Although there could be significant socioeconomic impacts, these alone do not require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement; therefore, one will not be prepared. Force restructure decisions reducing the Army active duty end- strength from 562,000 to 490,000 were supported by the 2013 PEA. The SPEA builds on the foundation of the 2013 PEA and assesses the impacts of a potential reduction of an additional 70,000 Soldiers and associated Army civilian employees (Army employees), from the end- strength of 490,000 Soldiers analyzed in the 2013 PEA to an active component end-strength of 420,000. The information in the SPEA will be used to support a series of decisions in the coming years regarding how the force is to be further realigned. An electronic version of the FNSI and SPEA is available for download at: http://aec.army.mil/Services/Support/NEPA/Documents.aspx.
