[Docket ID: DoD-2019-OS-0120]
Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
AGENCY: Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD.
ACTION: Notice of a modified System of Records.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) is modifying a
System of Records titled, ``Joint Advertising, Market Research &
Studies (JAMRS) Recruiting Database,'' DHRA 04. Records in the JAMRS
system are used to compile, process and distribute files of individuals
to the Services to assist them in their direct marketing recruiting
efforts. The system also provides JAMRS with the ability to measure
effectiveness of list purchases through ongoing analysis and to remove
the names of individuals who are currently members of, or are enlisting
in, the Armed Forces or who have asked that their names be removed from
future recruitment lists. The JAMRS Recruiting Database serves as a
foundation for the Services' outreach efforts.
DATES: This notice is effective upon publication; however, comments on
the Routine Uses will be accepted on or before November 15, 2019. The
Routine Uses are effective at the close of the comment period.
ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by docket number and
title, by any of the following methods:
    * Federal Rulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov.
    Follow the instructions for submitting comments.
    * Mail: Department of Defense, Office of the Chief Management
Officer, Directorate for Oversight and Compliance, 4800 Mark Center
Drive, Mailbox #24, Suite 08D09, Alexandria, VA 22350-1700.
    Instructions: All submissions received must include the agency name
and docket number for this Federal Register document. The general

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OSD is modifying a system of records
subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a. This system is used
by the Armed Forces to educate potential prospects on the benefits of
military service.
    There are several unique advantages to centralizing the development
and maintenance of this database on behalf of the DoD and the
individual military services. This includes: Improved information
assurance and physical security measures to ensure the information is
safeguarded at the highest possible levels; reduced cost and avoidance
of duplicate purchases of information, and timely removal of
individuals from mailing lists who do not want to receive information
from the Military.
    The DoD notices for Systems of Records subject to the Privacy Act
of 1974, as amended, have been published in the Federal Register and
are available from the address in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT or at
the Defense Privacy, Civil Liberties, and Transparency Division website
at https://dpcld.defense.gov.
    The proposed systems reports, as required by of the Privacy Act, as
amended, were submitted on August 20, 2019, to the House Committee on
Oversight and Reform, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)
pursuant to Section 6 to OMB Circular No. A-108, ``Federal Agency
Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the
Privacy Act,'' revised December 23, 2016 (December 23, 2016, 81 FR

physical security, perimeter security (firewall, intrusion prevention),
access control, authentication, encryption, data transfer, and
monitoring solutions prevent unauthorized access from internal and
external sources. The following administrative controls are also
applied to restrict access to those who require the data in the
performance of their official duties: Periodic security audits; regular
monitoring of users' security practices; methods to ensure only
authorized personnel have access to personally identifiable
information; encryption of backups containing sensitive data; and
backups secured offsite.
