Family Advocacy Case Records
Notice is hereby given that the Department of State proposes to create a new system of records, pursuant to the provision of the Privacy Act of 1974 as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a) and Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A-130, Appendix I. The Department's report was filed with the Office of Management and Budget on December 29, 2008. It is proposed that the system be named ``Family Advocacy Case Records System.'' The system description will specify that Family Advocacy Case Record System maintains records concerning alleged, suspected or established child abuse or neglect or domestic violence on individuals who have been the subject of the Department of State's Family Advocacy Program, including individuals who are or were under the authority of a Chief of Mission at a post abroad. Individuals whose information is continued in the system of records may include children who are alleged to have been the subject of abuse or neglect, family members of such children, alleged perpetrators of such abuse or neglect and those involved with allegations of domestic violence. Any persons interested in commenting on the new Family Advocacy Case Records system of records may do so by submitting comments in writing to Margaret P. Grafeld, Director, Office of Information Programs and Service, A/ISS/IPS, SA-2, 515 22nd Street, NW., Department of State, Washington, DC 20522-8001. The new system of records for the Family Advocacy Case Records will be effective, unless comments are received 40 days from the date of publication that result in a contrary determination. This new system description will read as set forth below.
