Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-130, notice is hereby given that the Department of the Army proposes to alter a system of records, A0037- 104-3 USMA, entitled ``USMA Cadet Account System,'' last published at 65 FR 3219, January 20, 2000. This system of records exists to enable Cadets to receive income (salary, scholarship, individual deposits, etc.) and pay for expenses (uniforms, books, a computer, activity fees, etc.) while attending the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point. The program is managed by the USMA Treasurer who is charged with ensuring all cadets meet their USMA financial obligations. This revision reflects considerable administrative changes that in sum warrant an alteration to the system of records notice. There are two significant changes: The categories of records has been updated to provide additional details on the information collected; and the applicable DoD Routine Uses have been incorporated in the notice to provide clarity for the public. There are also modifications to the system name, authorities, purpose, storage, retrievability, safeguards, notification and record access procedures, contesting record procedures, and records source categories to improve readability and update the notice to meet current departmental standards.
