DOCUMENT ACTION: Notice to establish a system of records.
Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records Notice
DATES: Effective December 27, 2010. Written comments should be submitted on or before the effective date. DOT/OST may publish an amended SORN in light of any comments received.
The Department of Transportation's Office of the Secretary of Transportation (DOT/OST) proposes to establish a DOTwide system of records under the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) to cover emergency contact records that are not covered by the governmentwide System of Records Notice (SORN) of the Office of Personnel Management, OPM/GOVT1. (OPM/GOVT1 covers some but not all employee contact records that are maintained outside the Official Personnel File, does not cover agencies' emergencyprogramrelated contact records, and does not cover contact information about contractor personnel.) The DOTwide system, known as the Emergency Contact Records system (ECR), is more thoroughly detailed below.
Privacy Act; Systems of Records
I. DOT Emergency Contact Records
This System of Records Notice covers all Privacy Act systems within
DOT that maintain emergency contact records about DOT personnel
(including employees, detailees and contractor personnel), other than
those covered by OPM/GOVT1. Examples of such systems include, but are not limited to, the following:
The Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) governs the means by which the United States Government collects, maintains, and uses personally identifiable information (PII) in a system of records. A ``system of records'' is a group of any records under the control of a Federal agency from which information about individuals is retrieved by name or other personal identifier.
The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish in the Federal Register a system of records notice (SORN) identifying and describing each system of records the agency maintains, including the purposes for which the agency uses PII in the system, the routine uses for which the agency discloses such information outside the agency, and how individuals to whom a Privacy Act record pertains can exercise their rights under the Privacy Act (e.g., to determine if the system contains information about them).
In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), a report on the establishment
of this system of records has been sent to Congress and to the Office of Management and Budget.
System Number: DOT/ALL 22
