[Docket ID: DoD-2012-OS-0131]

Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD.

ACTION: Notice to add a new System of Records; response to comments.


SUMMARY: The Office of the Secretary of Defense established a new 
Privacy Act System of Records entitled ``Public Affairs Management 
Information System.'' This notice responds to comments received on the 
Privacy Act Systems of Records Notice.

DATES: Effective Date: November 26, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mrs. Cindy Allard at (571) 372-0461.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Privacy Act Systems of Records Notice 
was published on October 26, 2012, in the Federal Register (77 FR 
65370). During the comment period, one public comment was received.
    Comment: The commenter noted there was ``no mention on how the 
records will be destroyed'' and that it ``should be spelled out in 
    DoD Response: A specific method of records destruction was not 
addressed because the scope of many of the OSD/JS systems of records 
notices is global and specific destruction methodology is frequently 
not able to be implemented globally (i.e., ``burning'' is prevalent 
within the National Capital Region; however, there are many DoD 
locations that do not have the capability). DoD Manual 5200.01 Volume 
4, DoD Information Security Program, Controlled Unclassified 
Information (CUI) requires that ``record copies of FOUO documents shall 
be disposed of according to provisions of chapter 33 of title 44 U.S.C. 
and the DoD Component records management directives. Non-record FOUO 
documents may be destroyed by any of the means approved for the 
destruction of classified information or by any other means that would 
make it difficult to recognize or reconstruct the information.''
