DOCUMENT ACTION: Notice of the establishment of a new system of records.
Privacy Act of 1974: Establishment of a New System of Records: Child Care Subsidy Program (SEC-41)
DATES: The new system will become effective September 19, 2000 unless further notice is given. The Commission will publish a new notice if the effective date is delayed to review comments or if changes are made based on comments received. To be assured of consideration, comments must be received on or before September 11, 2000.
In accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC or Commission) gives notice of a new Privacy Act system of records: ``Child Care Subsidy Program (SEC41).'' This system will contain personal information submitted by lower income employees who apply for child care tuition subsidy.
Systems of records,
The Commission is proposing to delete its
current ``Personnel Management Security Files (SEC41)'' and reserve
the system number ``SEC41.'' The current SEC41 consists merely of
copies of some records in, and, thus, duplicates, ``Personnel
Investigations Records (OPM/Central9)'' \1\ of the United States [[Page 49038]]
Office of Personnel Management. Under 5 CFR 736.104(b), requests for these investigative records ``are to be submitted to the Office of Personnel Management, Federal Investigations Processing Center, FOI/PA, Boyers, Pennsylvania 16018.''
\1\ Describing the system location, OPM/Central9 states, in part:
b. Decentralized segments: Copies of these records may exist temporarily in agencies on current employees, former employees, or on contractor employees. These copies may be located in the personnel security office or other designated offices responsible for suitability, security clearance, access, or hiring determination on an individual. (``Agency'' as used throughout this system is deemed to include Legislative and Judicial branch establishments as well as those in the Executive Branch).
In addition, the Commission is proposing to establish a new system of records, entitled ``Child Care Subsidy Program (SEC41).'' This system will contain personal information submitted by lower income employees who apply for child care tuition subsidy. This information will be considered in determining eligibility for and the amount of the subsidy. This data will come from application forms and supporting records submitted by employees.
The Commission has submitted a report of the new system of records to the U.S. House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Office of Management and Budget, under 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) and Appendix I to OMB Circular A130, ``Federal Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals,'' as amended on February 20, 1996 (61 FR 6435).
Accordingly, the Commission is adding a new system of records to read as follows.
