In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency008 Disaster Recovery Assistance Files System of Records.'' This system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency to collect and maintain records on applicants for its Disaster Assistance programs that provide financial and other tangible assistance to survivors of Presidentially-declared disasters. As a result of a biennial review of this system, this system of records notice has been updated as follows: Legal authorities have been added to account for all assistance that applicants may be eligible for and receive from FEMA; categories of records and record source categories reference and reflect new FEMA form numbers and account for all relevant records of assistance received from FEMA and other entities; categories of individuals more accurately reflect the individuals covered by the various programs covered by this system and explain that, although anyone may apply for the Individuals and Households Program (IHP) assistance, there are citizenship requirements tied to IHP eligibility; the purpose has been clarified to include other assistance programs in addition to IHP and to also include customer satisfaction assessments; routine uses have been revised to name tribal government agencies as potential recipients to comport with section 1110 of the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013 (Pub. L. 113-2); ensure recipients of information are identified in a consistent manner; expand the universe of potential recipients identified in current routine uses; incorporate congressionally mandated routine uses per 42 U.S.C. 5714(f)(2) as to sharing information with the States; and to delete the requirement that all routine use requests be made in writing; changes have been made to the retention and disposal of the records; and the record source categories have been updated to reflect housing forms not previously listed. Additionally, this notice includes non-substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. This updated system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.

P25 Compliance Assessment Program for Communications Equipment
Document Number: 2013-09805
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-04-25
Agency: Department of Homeland Security
The Department of Homeland Security is seeking Expressions of Interest from laboratory accreditation bodies, which are International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) Full Members and signatories to the ILAC mutual recognition arrangements (MRAs) and which are capable of providing accreditation services for laboratories participating in the Project 25 (P25) Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP). P25 is a standard which enables interoperability among digital two- way land mobile radio communications products created by and for public safety professionals. P25 CAP is a formal, independent process for ensuring that communications equipment that is declared by the manufacturer to be P25 compliant in fact meets P25 standards. Accreditation of the test laboratories that carry out the compliance assessment is currently conducted by P25 CAP itself, but DHS is considering a transition to compliance assessment by third-party laboratory accreditation organizations. As a first step in the process, the DHS is gauging interest from laboratory accreditation bodies. This Request for Expressions of Interest (REI) is for information and planning purposes only. It is not a broad agency announcement, Request for Proposals or Quotations, or other form of solicitation for bids, and it is not a commitment or obligation by DHS to make award of any contractual instrument or make any payment.

Document Number: 2013-09723
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-24
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor, Department of Homeland Security
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Labor (DOL) (jointly referred to as the Departments) are amending regulations governing certification for the employment of nonimmigrant workers in temporary or seasonal non-agricultural employment. This interim final rule revises how DOL provides the consultation that DHS has determined is necessary to adjudicate H-2B petitions by revising the methodology by which DOL calculates the prevailing wages to be paid to H-2B workers and U.S. workers recruited in connection with the application for certification; the prevailing wage is then used in petitioning DHS to employ nonimmigrant workers in H-2B status. DOL and DHS are jointly issuing this rule in response to the court's order in Comit[eacute] de Apoyo a los Trabajadores Agricolas v. Solis, which vacated portions of DOL's current prevailing wage rate regulation, and to ensure that there is no question that the rule is in effect nationwide in light of other outstanding litigation. This rule also contains certain revisions to DHS's H-2B rule to clarify that DHS is the Executive Branch agency charged with making determinations regarding eligibility for H-2B classification, after consulting with DOL for its advice about matters with which DOL has expertise, particularly, in this case, questions about the methodology for setting the prevailing wage in the H-2B program.
