Privacy Act of 1974; Publication of Notices of Systems of Records
Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Agency publishes this notice of its intention to establish twelve systems of records. Nine of these systems consist of an electronic case tracking system and associated paper or electronic files, and the remaining systems, NLRB-22, NLRB-26, and NLRB-31, consist of electronic case tracking systems only. The electronic case tracking systems and associated paper or electronic files permit the accurate and timely collection, retrieval, and retention of information maintained by offices of the Agency, regarding those offices' handling of matters before them, including unfair labor practice, representation, or Freedom of Information Act cases. All persons are advised that, in the absence of submitted comments considered by the Agency as warranting modification of the notices as here proposed, it is the intention of the Agency that the notices shall be effective upon expiration of the comment period without further action.
Privacy Act of 1974; Implementation
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proposes to exempt three systems of records and portions of four other systems of records from certain provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, pursuant to Section (k)(2) of that Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2), and to amend existing Privacy Act regulations for clarity.
Debt Collection Procedures
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is issuing interim regulations with a request for comments concerning the procedures used to collect debts that are owed to the NLRB. These interim regulations conform to the legislative changes enacted in the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (DCIA) and the amended procedures presented in the Federal Claims Collection Standards (FCCS) issued by the Department of the Treasury (Treasury) and the Department of Justice (DOJ). These regulations are intended to improve the NLRB's collection of debts owed to the United States.
