SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Department of the Interior (DOI), National Park Service (NPS) 
maintains the ``Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) System--NPS-24'' 
system of records. The purpose of this system is to manage the NPS 
Commercial Services Program allowing commercial uses within a unit of 
the National Park System, and to monitor resources that are or may be 
affected by the authorized commercial uses. The system will also be 
used to protect the natural and cultural resources of the national 
parks, and will provide the public the description and contact 
information for businesses that provide services in national parks.
    The system will be effective as proposed at the end of the comment 
period (the comment period will end 40 days after the publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register), unless comments are received 
which would require a contrary determination. DOI will publish a 
revised notice if changes are made based upon a review of the comments 
received.

II. Privacy Act

    The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, embodies fair information 
principles in a statutory framework governing the means by which 
Federal Agencies collect, maintain, use, and disseminate individuals' 
personal 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 from which 
information is retrieved by the name of an individual or by some 
identifying number, symbol, or other identifying particular assigned to 
the individual. The Privacy Act defines an individual as a U.S. citizen 
or lawful permanent resident. As a matter of policy, DOI extends 
administrative Privacy Act protections to all individuals. Individuals 
may request access to their own records that are maintained in a system 
of records in the possession or under the control of DOI by complying 
with DOI Privacy Act regulations, 43 CFR part 2.
    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, the routine uses that are 
contained in each system in order to make agency record keeping 
practices transparent, to notify individuals regarding the uses of 
their records, and to assist individuals to more easily find such 
records within the agency. Below is the description of the NPS 
``Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) System--NPS-24'' system of 
records.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DOI has provided a report of 
this system of records to the Office of Management and Budget and to 
Congress.

III. Public Disclosure

    Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be 
aware that your entire comment including your personal identifying 
information may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.

    Dated: March 19, 2013.
Felix Uribe,
Privacy Act Officer, National Park Service.
