Privacy Act of 1974; Report of an Altered System of Records; Sanitation Facilities Construction Individual Applicant Records; System Number 09-17-0004
Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4), the IHS has amended and is publishing the proposed alteration of a SOR, System No. 09-17-0004, ``Sanitation Facilities Construction Individual Applicant (SFCIA) Records.'' Under the provisions of the Indian Sanitation Facilities Act, Public Law 86- 121 (42 U.S.C. 2004a), IHS is charged with carrying out the functions to determine basic individual and home eligibility for sanitation services. The primary change to this SOR notice is to delete the reference to the Social Security Numbers (SSNs) under the Categories of Records; Retrievability; Notification; Record Access; and Contesting Record Procedures to comply with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum (M)07-16, Safeguarding Against and Responding to the Breach of Personally Identifiable Information (May 22, 2007); and the HHS Directive Memorandum of October 6, 2008 to all Operating Division Heads to develop and execute a plan to eliminate the unnecessary collection and use of SSNs.
