Department of Defense June 15, 2016 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Privacy Act of 1974; Implementation
Document Number: 2016-14183
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-06-15
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The Office of the Secretary of Defense is exempting those records contained in DMDC 24 DoD, entitled ``Defense Information System for Security (DISS),'' when investigatory material is compiled solely for the purpose of determining suitability, eligibility, or qualifications for Federal civilian employment, military service, Federal contracts, or access to classified information, but only to the extent that such material would reveal the identity of a confidential source. This direct final rule establishes a new exemption to the Office of the Secretary Privacy Program. The Defense Information System for Security is the new DoD enterprise-wide information system for personnel security; it provides a common, comprehensive medium to request, record, document, and identify personnel security actions within the Department including: Determinations of eligibility and access to classified information, national security, suitability and/or fitness for employment, and HSPD-12 determination for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) to access government facilities and systems, submitting adverse information, verification of investigation and or adjudicative status, support of continuous evaluation and insider threat detection, prevention, and mitigation activities. DISS consists of two applications, the Case Adjudication Tracking system (CATS) and the Joint Verification System (JVS). CATS is used by the DoD Adjudicative Community for the purpose of recording eligibility determinations. JVS is used by DoD Security Managers and Industry Facility Security Officers for the purpose of verifying eligibility, recording access determinations, submitting incidents for subsequent adjudication, and visit requests from the field (worldwide). The records may also be used as a management tool for statistical analyses, tracking, reporting, evaluating program effectiveness, and conducting research. This direct final rule is consistent with the rule currently published regarding DMDC 11, Investigative Records Repository.

Update to Notice of Intent to the Joint Environmental Impact Statement and Environmental Impact Report for Development of the Oro Verde Solar Project
Document Number: 2016-14125
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-06-15
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force
The United States Air Force (USAF) is issuing this notice to update the public on changes to the joint Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for development of the Oro Verde Solar Project (OVSP). The Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare a joint project-level EIS/EIR for the Oro Verde Solar Project was originally published in the Federal Register on May 29, 2013 (FR Doc. 2013-12751). Public and agency meetings were held to discuss the project on June 11, 2013, at Club Muroc on Edwards AFB; June 12, 2013, at the Mojave Veterans Hall at 15580 O Street in Mojave, California; and June 13, 2013, at the Hummel Community Hall at 2500 20th Street West in Rosamond, California. Since the publication of the NOI, the Air Force is no longer partnering with the originally selected project developer for the Oro Verde Solar Project. However, the Air Force is continuing with completion of an EIS/EIR at a broader programmatic level to support future project implementation. The Air Force has retitled this project the Edwards AFB Solar EUL Project Programmatic EIS/EIR. The programmatic analysis will provide future potential developers and the public with an early understanding of environmental impacts and benefits of the proposed action, and will assist in framing the scope of any subsequent site-specific Air Force actions.
