    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

    To improve communications and collaboration among its staff, PBGC is proposing to establish a new system of records subject to the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) that will make it easier for PBGC employees and employees of PBGC's contractors to identify other PBGC employees by name, organizational component or title, supervisor, or area of expertise, and to access contact information. The Online Employee Directory (“OED”) will be accessible to PBGC employees and employees of PBGC's contractors via PBGC's intranet and allow users to search and retrieve information about PBGC employees by first, middle, or last name, organizational component and title, supervisor's name, or area of expertise. The OED will include contact information, i.e., each employee's PBGC mailing address, room or workstation number, telephone number and extension, and electronic mail address. The OED will also include the photograph of each employee from the PBGC-issued photo identification badge that PBGC employees must wear in PBGC facilities. An employee may opt out of having their photograph displayed in the OED.

    PBGC general routine uses G1 through G8 will apply to this system of records. These routine uses were published as the PBGC's Prefatory Statement of General Routine Uses at 60 FR 57462, 57563 (Nov. 15, 1995). PBGC has determined that these routine uses are “appropriate and necessary for the efficient conduct of government and in the best interest of both the individual and the public.”See Privacy Act Implementation, Guidelines and Responsibilities, Office of Management and Budget, 40 FR 28948, 28953 (1975).

    Issued in Washington, DC, this 25th day of August 2008.

    Director, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
