• An explanation of why you believe
the Department would have information
on you,
• Specify when you believe the
records would have been created,
• If your request is seeking records
pertaining to another living individual,
you must include a statement from that
individual certifying his/her agreement
for you to access his/her records.
Without this bulleted information
CBP may not be able to conduct an
effective search, and your request may
be denied due to lack of specificity or
lack of compliance with applicable
regulations.
RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES:

See ‘‘Notification procedure’’ above.
CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES:

See ‘‘Notification procedure’’ above.
RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES:

The system contains certain data
received on individuals, passengers and
crewmembers that arrive in, depart
from, or transit through the U.S. This
system also contains information
collected from carriers that operate
vessels, vehicles, aircraft and/or trains
that enter or exit the U.S. and from the
individuals upon crossing the U.S.
border.
Basic information is obtained from
individuals, the individual’s attorney/
representative, CBP officials, and other
federal, state, local, and foreign
agencies.
EXEMPTIONS CLAIMED FOR THE SYSTEM:

No exemption shall be asserted with
respect to information maintained in the
system that is collected from a person or
submitted on behalf of a person, if that
person, or his or her agent, seeks access
or amendment of such information.
This system, however, may contain
information related to an ongoing law
enforcement investigation because the
information regarding a person’s travel
and border crossing was disclosed to
appropriate law enforcement in
conformance with the above routine
uses. As such pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552

exemption from (c)(3), (e)(8), and (g) of
the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, as
is necessary and appropriate to protect
this information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background
Pursuant to the savings clause in the
Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public
Law 107–296, Section 1512, 116 Stat.
2310 (November 25, 2002), the
Department of Homeland Security
(DHS)/United States Coast Guard
(USCG) have relied on preexisting
Privacy Act systems of records notices
for the collection and maintenance of
records that concern active duty,
reserve, and retired active duty and
retired reserve, as well as eligible
dependent’s military pay and personnel
processing.
As part of its efforts to streamline and
consolidate its record systems, DHS is
updating and reissuing a USCG system
of records under the Privacy Act (5
U.S.C. 552a) that deals with active duty,
reserve, retired active duty, and retired
reserve, as well as eligible dependent’s
military pay and personnel processing.
This record system will allow DHS/
USCG to collect and maintain records
regarding military pay. The collection
and maintenance of this information
will assist DHS/USCG in meeting its
obligation pay active duty, reserve,
retired active duty, and retired reserve
military personnel, as well as eligible
dependents for their service.
In accordance with the Privacy Act of
1974, and as part of the DHS Privacy
Office’s ongoing effort to review and
update legacy system of record notices
DHS is giving notice that it proposes to
add a system of records to its inventory

II. Privacy Act
The Privacy Act embodies fair
information principles in a statutory
framework governing the means by
which the United States Government
collects, maintains, uses, and
disseminates individuals’ information.
The Privacy Act applies to information
that is maintained in a ‘‘system of
records.’’ A ‘‘system of records’’ is a
group of any records under the control
of an agency for which information is
retrieved by the name of an individual
or by some identifying number, symbol,
or other identifying particular assigned
to the individual. In the Privacy Act, an
individual is defined to encompass
United States citizens and lawful
permanent residents. As a matter of
policy, DHS extends administrative
Privacy Act protections to all
individuals where systems of records
maintain information on U.S. citizens,
lawful permanent residents, and
visitors. Individuals may request access
to their own records that are maintained
in a system of records in the possession
or under the control of DHS by

VerDate Aug<31>2005

Jkt 217001

complying with DHS Privacy Act
regulations, 6 CFR part 5.
The Privacy Act requires each agency
to publish in the Federal Register a
description denoting the type and
character of each system of records that
the agency maintains, and the routine
uses that are contained in each system
in order to make agency record keeping
practices transparent, to notify
individuals regarding the use of their
records, and to assist individuals to
more easily find such files within the
agency. Below is the description of the
Military Pay and Personnel System of
Records.
III. Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act
This system of records contains
individually identifiable health
information. The Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act of
1996, applies to most of such health
information. Department of Defense
6025.18–R may place additional
procedural requirements on the uses
and disclosures of such information
beyond those found in the Privacy Act
of 1974 or mentioned in this system of
records notice.
In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r),
DHS has provided a report of this new
system of records to the Office of
Management and Budget and to
Congress.
