Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
Consistent with the Defense Health Agency's creation on October 1, 2013, the existing system of records, DHA 20 DoD, entitled ``Department of Defense Suicide Event Report (DoDSER) System,'' is being realigned to the Defense Health Agency's compilation of Privacy Act System of Records Notices (SORNs). The realignment of this system requires a change in its system identifier to reflect the numbering system used by the Defense Health Agency. The Defense Health Agency also proposes to alter this system of records. This system establishes, collects, and maintains integrated DoD enterprise and survey data to be used for direct reporting of Reportable Events involving individuals on active duty or serving in the Reserves, supporting ongoing population-based health surveillance activities and public health within DoD, and for analysis. Surveillance activities include the systematic collection, analysis, interpretation, and reporting of outcome-specific data for use in planning and development of best practices, education, public health within DoD, and training on protocols for identifying, responding to, and managing individuals at increased risk of suicide; and implementation, evaluation, and prevention of suicide behaviors and Reportable Events within the DoD.

Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to alter a system of records, DMDC 04, entitled ``Emergency Evacuation Tracking and Repatriation.'' Repatriation centers will use this information to track and account for individuals evacuated from emergency situations due to military operations, political situations, natural disasters, or other potentially dangerous circumstances. Repatriation centers assist evacuees in securing requested relocation services, and recording and recovering relocation costs.
