Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Transportation, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) 007 Pre-Employment Screening Program
Document Number: 2012-17597
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-07-19
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Transportation proposes to update and reissue a Department of Transportation system of records notice titled Department of Transportation/Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration007 Pre- Employment Screening Program. The updated system of records consists of information that is created and used by the Department's Pre-Employment Screening program to provide commercial drivers and persons conducting pre-employment screening services for the motor carrier industry electronic access to driver history reports extracted from the Department's Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). As a result of biennial review of this system, the Privacy Office has made the five major modifications to the systems of records. The category of records identified as ``Financial Transaction Records'' in the previously published System of Records Notice for this system has been removed as the Department does not maintain these records. The ``Access Transaction Records'' record category also has been revised to clarify the types of information maintained about the two categories of users permitted to request access to records for the purposes of pre- employment screening. The routine uses have been updated to clarify disclosure of Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) records to industry service providers directly involved in the hiring of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers on behalf of motor carriers and/ or CMV drivers and the routine use concerning the sharing of CMV driver access transaction records with Validation Authorities (e.g. Lexis- Nexis). The system owner information has been modified to omit the contact information for the MCMIS and Freedom of Information Act systems of records and, instead, include only contact information for the PSP system of records. 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 Transportation's inventory of record systems.
