In the Federal Register, the Bureau of Prisons (Bureau or BOP), a component of the Department of Justice, has published a notice of a revised Privacy Act system of records, Inmate Central Records System (JUSTICE/BOP-005). In this notice of proposed rulemaking, the Bureau proposes to amend its Privacy Act regulations for the Inmate Central Records System (JUSTICE/BOP-005) by now exempting this system from subsections (c)(3) and (4); (d); (e)(1), (2), (3), (4)(G), (H), and (I), (5), and (8); (f); and (g) of the Privacy Act of 1974 pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j) and (k) for the reasons set forth in the following text. The exemptions are necessary to avoid interference with the law enforcement and functions and responsibilities of the Bureau. Public comment is invited.
