SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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).
