Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2016-24369
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-10-07
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
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, DHRA 12 DoD, entitled ``Defense Injury and Unemployment Compensation System,'' last published at 79 FR 19872, April 10, 2014. This system of records exists to administer Federal Employees Compensation Act claims in which individuals seek monetary, medical, and similar benefits for injuries or deaths sustained while performing assigned duties. Maintaining this record is necessary to provide counsel and assistance to employees regarding their entitlements and to conduct audits of such entitlements with concerned State Employment Security Agencies. This update reflects administrative changes that in sum warrant an alteration to the systems of records notice. Information collected on the individual has been reduced by eliminating the Occupational Safety and Health Act initial notification report from the record; accordingly, the reference has been removed from the categories of records and the purpose sections of the notice. The source authority, 5 U.S.C. 85, Unemployment Compensation, has been included as the DoD policy is derived from this statute. Further, the applicable DoD Routine Uses have been incorporated in the notice to provide clarity for the public. There are also modifications to system identifier, system name, system location, retention and disposal, system manager(s) and address, and notification procedure.

Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2016-24331
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-10-07
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
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 DUSDP 11, entitled ``POW/Missing Personnel Office Files,'' last published at 62 FR 40051, July 25, 1997. This system of records exists to collect information concerning DoD personnel and U.S. citizens who are known or may be prisoners of war or officially missing in order to provide the fullest possible accounting for our missing personnel to their families and the nation. The data is also used to produce studies and analytical reports for agencies that develop policies with respect to American military members and civilians designated as missing or prisoners of war as a result of campaigns or wars involving the U.S. Military. This update reflects considerable administrative changes that in sum warrant an alteration to the system of records notice. In this notice, references to specific wars and conflicts has been removed from the categories of individuals to clarify who may be a subject of these records. The records are no longer retrieved by Social Security Number (SSN), therefore a statement has been added to the category of records and reference to the SSN has been removed from the retrievability section. Additionally, the applicable DoD Routine Uses have been incorporated in the notice to provide clarity for the public. Further, the system name, system location, authorities, storage, purpose, safeguards, retention and disposal, system manager(s) and address, notification procedure, record access procedures, and record source categories were updated to ensure the information is accurate and current. Finally, the exemptions claimed for this system were reviewed and determined to remain applicable and current.
