Alteration to Existing Systems of Records
In accordance with the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a (e)(4)), we are issuing public notice of our intent to alter and make minor housekeeping changes to two existing systems of records, the Working File of the Appeals Council, HHS/SSA/OHA, 09-60-0004, and the Administrative Law Judge Working File on Claimant Cases System, HHS/ SSA/OHA, 09-60-0005, hereinafter referred to as the ALJ Working File, as follows: Expansion of the record storage medium in each system of records to include the maintenance of records in electronic form; Housekeeping changes that will result in corrections in the systems of records reference number; System name; Notification procedures; Record access procedures; and Contesting records procedures. We also propose to make housekeeping changes to the SSA Litigation Tracking System, HHS/SSA/LS, 09-60-0186 system of records to more accurately reflect the current functions of that system. The proposed changes will include corrections to the following sections of the notice of the SSA Litigation Tracking system of records: Systems of records reference number; System name; Notification procedures; Record access procedures; Contesting record procedures; and System manager. The proposed alteration and housekeeping changes are discussed in the Supplementary Information section below. We invite public comments on this proposal.
