Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records-Investigatory Material Compiled for Personnel Security, Suitability, Positive Identification Verification and Access Control for the Department of Education Security Tracking and Reporting System (EDSTAR)
Document Number: E7-23059
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-11-27
Agency: Department of Education
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (Privacy Act), the Department of Education (Department), publishes this notice to amend and rename the system of records entitled ``Investigatory Material Compiled for Personnel Security and Suitability Purposes'' (18-05-17) as ``Investigatory Material Compiled for Personnel Security, Suitability, Positive Identification Verification and Access Control for the Department of Education Security Tracking and Reporting System (EDSTAR)'' (18-05-17) and to delete the system of records entitled ``Identification Media Records'' (18-05-16). The Department is taking these actions because these systems of records have been merged into and consolidated with the EDSTAR system of records. EDSTAR is designed to implement the requirements of Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-12. HSPD-12 is a Presidential directive that requires the promulgation of a Federal standard to ensure a common, governmentwide standard for secure and reliable forms of Personal Identity Verification (PIV). On February 25, 2005, the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST's) Computer Security Division issued Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201, entitled ``Personal Identity Verification of Federal Employees and Contractors'', in order to satisfy the requirements of HSPD-12 to improve the identification and authentication of Federal employees and contractors for access to Federal facilities and information systems. The Department maintains records in EDSTAR for the purpose of making individual positive identification verification, adjudication determinations concerning suitability for Federal employment and contract positions, decisions concerning access to the Department's facilities and information systems, and information related to the issuance of PIV and FIPS compliant identification media and access to restricted areas. Because many of these records are currently covered by the systems of records entitled ``Identification Media Records'' (18-05-16) and ``Investigatory Material Compiled for Personnel Security and Suitability Purposes'' (18-05-17), the Department is merging and consolidating these systems of records by amending and renaming the ``Investigatory Material Compiled for Personnel Security and Suitability Purposes'' (18-05-17) system as EDSTAR and deleting the system of records for ``Identification Media Records'' (18-05-16).
