Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
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 Defense proposes to delete a system of records, DGC 20, DoD Presidential Appointee Vetting File, last published at 65 FR 75246 on December 1, 2000. This system of records was originally created to facilitate the White House Presidential Appointee vetting process by assisting potential nominees as they completed the vetting documents. Based on a recent review of DGC 20, DoD Presidential Appointee Vetting File, it was determined that this system of records is now appropriately covered under and is maintained in accordance with the government-wide Office of Government Ethics system of records notice OGE/GOVT-1, Executive Branch Personnel Public Financial Disclosure Reports and Other Name-Retrieved Ethics Program Records (December 9, 2013, 78 FR 73863). Accordingly, DGC 20 is duplicative and can be deleted.
