their amended systems of records in the Federal Register when there is 
a revision, change, or addition. The Postal Service\TM\ has reviewed 
this system of records and has determined that this General Privacy Act 
System of Records should be revised to modify Categories of Records in

I. Background

    The U.S. Postal Service has a Web site called keepingposted.org 
available for retired USPS employees who want to stay connected with 
postal news, events and people. This site also provides links to other 
retirement resources and services.

II. Rationale for Changes to USPS Privacy Act Systems of Records

    The Postal Service wants to contact postal retirees to make them 
aware they can find on the Keeping Posted Web site up-to-date news and 
information about the organization, messages to retirees from the 
Postmaster General, as well as continuing federal retiree benefit 
information.

III. Description of Changes to Systems of Records

    The Postal Service is modifying one system of records listed below. 
Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), interested persons are invited to 
submit written data, views, or arguments on this proposal. A report of 
the proposed modifications has been sent to Congress and to the Office 
of Management and Budget for their evaluation. The Postal Service does 
not expect this amended notice to have any adverse effect on individual 
privacy rights. The affected system is as follows:
USPS 100.000

SYSTEM NAME:
    General Personnel Records
    Accordingly, for the reasons stated, the Postal Service proposes
