Bureau of Land Management

Privacy Act of 1974; Amendments to Existing Systems of Records

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Proposed amendment of existing Privacy Act systems of records.


SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), 
the Bureau of Land Management of the Department of the Interior is 
issuing public notice of its intent to amend 27 existing Privacy Act 
system of records notices to add a new routine use to authorize the 
disclosure of records to individuals involved in responding to a breach 
of Federal data.

DATES: Comments must be received by May 12, 2008.

ADDRESSES: Any persons interested in commenting on these proposed 
amendments may do so by submitting comments in writing to the Bureau of 
Land Management, Privacy Act Program Manager, Laura F. Bell, 1849 C 
Street, NW., 750 LS, WO 560, Washington, DC 20240, or e-mail: 
[email protected].

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bureau of Land Management, Privacy Act 
Program Manager, Laura F. Bell, U.S. Department of the Interior, 1849 C 
Street, NW., 750 LS, WO 560, Washington, DC 20240, or e-mail: 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 22, 2007, in a memorandum for the 
heads of Executive Departments and Agencies entitled ``Safeguarding 
Against and Responding to the Breach of Personally Identifiable 
Information,'' the Office of Management and Budget directed agencies to 
develop and publish a routine use for disclosure of information in 
connection with response and remedial efforts in the event of a data 
breach. This routine use will serve to protect the interests of the 
individual, whose information is at issue by allowing agencies to take 
appropriate steps to facilitate a timely and effective response to the 
breach, thereby improving its ability to prevent, minimize, or remedy 
any harm resulting from a compromise of data maintained in its systems 
of records. Accordingly, the Bureau of Land Management of the 
Department of the Interior is proposing to add a new routine use to 
authorize disclosure to appropriate agencies, entities, and persons, of 
information maintained in the following systems in the event of a data 
breach. These amendments will be effective as proposed at the end of 
the comment period unless comments are received which would require a 
contrary determination. The Department will publish a revised notice if 
changes are made based upon a review of comments received.

    Dated: March 3, 2008.
Laura F. Bell,
Bureau of Land Management Privacy Act Program Manager.
