SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 
U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)), hereinafter referred to as the Act, the Department 
hereby publishes notice of updates to its systems of records. On April 
8, 2002, in Volume 67 at Page 16816 of the Federal Register, the 
Department published a notice of 147 systems of records maintained 
under the Act. In February 2003, a new system of records was published 
on behalf of the Office of the 21st Century
Workforce, entitled DOL/21st CENTURY-1, Correspondents with the Office 
of the 21st Century Workforce, which appeared at 68 FR 6185 (February 
6, 2003). Additionally, in September 2003, the Department amended two 
existing systems of records, which appear at 68 FR 54012 (September 15, 
2003). On January 11, 2012, the Department published five new and five 
amended systems of records, which appear at 77 FR 1728 (January 11, 
2012).
    This current document presents five new systems of records, amends 
nine systems of records, and proposes decommissioning of five systems 
of records, bringing the Department's total number of systems of 
records to 153. This notice first provides a summary of the five new, 
nine amended systems of records, and five proposed decommissioned 
systems of records, and then provides the Universal Routine Uses 
applicable to all systems of records, followed by the text of each of 
the new and amended systems of records.
    1. The first new system is entitled DOL/ADJBDS-1, DOL Appeals 
Management System (AMS) (see Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, 
Section I below). This system contains information maintained by the 
Department concerning parties involved in appeals proceedings before 
the Administrative Review Board (ARB), Benefits Review Board (BRB), and 
Employees' Compensations Appeals Board (ECAB), collectively referred to 
as "the Boards." As part of a long-term initiative to modernize their 
management information systems, the Boards have undertaken and 
completed a consolidation of four legacy computer systems into the DOL 
Appeals Management System (AMS). AMS now processes and stores the 
information previously contained in the following legacy systems:
    a. DOL/ARB-1, Administrative Review Board Appeals files.
    b. DOL/BRB-1, Appeals Benefits Review Board.
    c. DOL/ECAB-1, Employees' Compensation Appeals Board Docket 
Records.
    d. DOL/ECAB-2, Employees' Compensation Appeals Board Deposition 
Records.
    2. The second new system is entitled DOL/BLS-21, Data Sharing 
Agreements Database (DSA) (see Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, 
Section II below). This system contains information maintained by the 
Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) concerning individuals 
who have been granted access to non-public information in data files 
maintained by BLS, and who have signed confidentiality agreements under 
the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act 
(CIPSEA).
    3. The third new system is entitled DOL/CENTRAL-4, Department of 
Labor Advisory Committees Members Files (see Notice of Changes to 
System of Records, Section III below). The duties of the Committee 
Management Officer, previously located in the Office of Small Business 
Programs (OSPB), have been re-assigned to the Office of the Secretary. 
Therefore, the system of records titled DOL/OSBP-2, Department of Labor 
Advisory Committees Members Files, is proposed to be decommissioned. 
DOL/CENTRAL-4, Department of Labor Advisory Committees Members Files 
will include the contents of the decommissioned DOL/OSBP-2 system.
    4. The fourth new system is entitled DOL/OMBUDSMAN-1, Office of the 
Ombudsman for the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation 
Program Act (EEOICPA) File (see Notice of Changes to System of Records, 
Section IV below). This system contains records of contacts with and 
correspondence between individuals who are interested in obtaining 
information concerning their potential entitlement under Parts B and E 
of the EEOICPA.
    5. The fifth new system is entitled DOL/VETS-4, VETS Employee 
Conduct Investigations (see Notice of Changes to System of Records, 
Section V below). This system contains records of investigations into 
allegations of employee misconduct within the Veterans' Employment and 
Training Service (VETS).
    6. In the first proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Record, Section VI below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/OASAM-12, Administrative Grievance 
Records, to add the phrase "settlement agreements" to the section 
titled "Categories of records in the system." In addition, system 
location and several other categories are proposed to be refined.
    7. In the second proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section VII below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/OASAM-17, Equal Employment Opportunity 
Complaint Files, to clarify the "System location" sections. In 
addition, several other categories are proposed to be refined.
    8. In the third proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section VIII below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/OASAM-19, Negotiated Grievance 
Procedure and Unfair Labor Practice Files, to clarify the "System 
location" sections. In addition, several other categories are proposed 
to be refined.
    9. In the fourth proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section IX below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/OASAM-22, Civil Rights Center 
Discrimination Complaint Files, to clarify the "System location" 
sections. In addition, several other categories are proposed to be 
refined.
    10. In the fifth proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section X below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/OCFO-2, New Core Financial Management 
System (NCFMS), by updating the system name. In addition, several other 
categories are proposed to be refined.
    11. In the sixth proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section XI below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/ODEP-2, Workforce Recruitment Program 
for College Students with Disabilities (WRP) Database, by updating the 
system name; storage, retention and disposal of records information; 
and the categories of records contained in the system. In addition, 
several other categories are proposed to be refined.
    12. In the seventh proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section XII below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/OALJ-2, Office of Administrative Law 
Judges Case Files, by revising the statement of Authority for 
maintenance of the system.
    13. In the eighth proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section XIII below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/OSHA-6, Program Activity File, by 
updating the system location, the categories of individuals covered by 
the system, and the records contained in the system. In addition, 
several other categories are proposed to be refined.
    14. In the ninth proposed amendment to a system of records (see 
Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section XIV below), the 
Department proposes to amend DOL/SOL-15, Solicitor's Office Litigation 
Files, to add the phrase "settlement agreements" to the section 
titled "Categories of records in the system," and to clarify the 
"System location" section. In addition, several other categories are 
proposed to be refined.
    15. The Department proposes to decommission five legacy systems of
records (See Notice of Changes to Systems of Records, Section XV 
below). The first four decommissioned systems are entitled DOL/ARB-1, 
Administrative Review Board Appeals files; DOL/BRB-1, Appeals Benefits 
Review Board; DOL/ECAB-1, Employees' Compensation Appeals Board Docket 
Records; and DOL/ECAB-2, Employees' Compensation Appeals Board 
Deposition. The proposed decommissioned systems of records are being 
consolidated into a new systems of records as discussed in Paragraph 1 
above. The Department also proposes to decommission a fifth system of 
records entitled DOL/OSBP-2, Department of Labor Advisory Committees 
Members Files. The proposed decommissioned systems of records is being 
eliminated as discussed in Paragraph 3 above.
    The public, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Congress 
are invited to submit written comments on the five new systems, the 
proposed amendments to nine existing systems, and the proposed 
decommissioning of five existing systems. A report on the five new 
systems and the proposed amendments to nine existing systems and 
proposed decommissioning of five existing systems has been provided to 
OMB and the Congress as required by OMB Circular A-130, Revised, and 5 
U.S.C. 552a(r).
    In its April 8, 2002, publication, the Department gave notice of 12 
routine uses that apply to all of its systems of records, except for 
DOL/OASAM-5, DOL/OASAM-7, and DOL/CENTRAL-3. These 12 routine uses were 
presented in the General Prefatory Statement for that document, and 
appeared at Page 16825 of Volume 67 of the Federal Register. At this 
time, as a convenience to the reader of this document, we are 
republishing this General Prefatory Statement. This republication shall 
include the statement, also contained in the 2002 and 2011 
publications, that pursuant to the Flexiplace Program (also known as 
"telework" consistent with the Telework Enforcement Act), the system 
location for all systems of records may be temporarily located at 
alternate worksites, including remote locations, employees' homes, or 
at geographically convenient satellite offices for part of the 
workweek.

    Official case records, including final decisions and orders, may be 
disclosed to the Federal courts and boards that are charged with 
reviewing decisions on appeal.
    Information from the official record may be disclosed to the 
parties or their attorneys or their non-attorney representatives in 
matters pending before the OALJ. Information from case files may also 
be disclosed pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 
U.S.C. 552.
    ALJ decisions and orders and other selected orders are public 
agency records and are released to the public, for the purpose of 
creating a body of legal precedent which serves to guide the public 
regarding the statutes over which the OALJ exercises jurisdiction. 
Final decisions and orders and other selected orders are available on 
the agency's internet Web site at www.oalj.dol.gov and may be sent to 
commercial publishing companies for publication in paper form and over 
the internet. They are also available for public inspection at the 
OALJ's reading room.
