Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-130, notice is hereby given that the Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to alter a system of records, DUSDA 14, entitled ``Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation Information Management System,'' last published at 74 FR 66959, December 17, 2009. This system of records exists to enable the Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation (SMART) program officials to select qualified scholarship applicants and monitor their progress through the program. This update reflects considerable administrative changes that in sum warrant an alteration to the systems of records notice. The categories of records were updated to delineate the information maintained in the records. The purpose was revised to advise individuals that the data may be used for statistical analysis, reporting, research, and evaluation of the program's effectiveness. Additionally, the applicable DoD Routine Uses have been incorporated in the notice to provide clarity for the public. Lastly, the system name, system location, categories of individuals, authorities, storage, retrievability, safeguards, retention and disposal, system manager(s) and address, notification procedures, record access procedures, contesting record procedures, and record source categories have also been updated to ensure the information is accurate and current.
This final rule removes Department of Defense (DoD) Subchapter R concerning organizational charters. The rules in this subchapter address DoD organizational processes for Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs (ASD(RA)), Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA), and Defense Legal Services Agency (DLSA). It has been determined that there is no need to codify the rules in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) because these documents will not create a mandate applicable to persons outside of the DoD.
Presentation of DoD-Related Scientific and Technical Papers at Meetings
This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning the presentation of DoD-related scientific and technical papers at meetings. The codified rule is outdated and no longer accurate or applicable as written. The codified rule contains internal guidance relating to how and when DoD scientific and technical papers in the possession or under the control of DoD can be presented at meetings. The rule does not impose obligations on members of the public. Therefore, 32 CFR part 249 can be removed from the CFR.
Sale or Rental of Sexually Explicit Material on DoD Property
This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning sale or rental of sexually explicit material on Department of Defense (DoD) property. The codified rule does not impose any duty or obligation on the public that is not already imposed by statute. The rule paraphrases and does not substantially deviate from 10 U.S.C. 2495b, which establishes the prohibition on selling or renting sexually explicit material on DoD property. Also, the codified rule delegates internal authorities and establishes procedures for administering the statute, neither of which have public impact. Consequently, Federal Register rulemaking is not necessary under the Administrative Procedure Act.
Management and Mobilization of Regular and Reserve Retired Military Members
This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning the management and mobilization of regular and reserve retired military members. This rule does not create the DoD's authority to recall retired members, but it directs how DoD can deploy those members once recalled into active service. Accordingly, the codified rule deals with agency management/personnel, and has been determined to not require rulemaking. Alternatively, this rule is covered by the notice-and- comment exception for military affairs, because the rule governs the uniquely military decision of how best to employ and deploy assets. Therefore, this CFR part can be removed.
