Additionally, a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for VSPTS-Net will be posted on the Department's privacy Web site (see http://www.dhs.gov/privacy and follow the link to ``Privacy Impact Assessments.'') Due to urgent homeland security and law enforcement mission needs, VSPTS-Net is currently in operation. Recognizing that ICE is publishing a notice of system of records for an existing system, ICE will carefully consider public comments, apply appropriate revisions, and republish the VSPR notice of system of records within 180 days of receipt of comments. A proposed rulemaking is also published in this issue of the Federal Register in which the Department proposes to exempt portions of this system of records from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act because of criminal, civil and administrative enforcement requirements.
