[Docket ID: USN-2021-HQ-0002]

Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records

AGENCY:

United States Marine Corps (USMC), Department of Defense (DoD).

ACTION:

Notice of a new system of records.

SUMMARY:

The Department of the Navy is establishing a new System of Records entitled the Command Individual Risk and Resiliency System (CIRRAS) application. The CIRRAS application will be used by the USMC to enable Commanding Officers and Senior Enlisted Advisors to make informed and timely decisions on Force Preservation Risk Assessments, to optimize individual/unit readiness, and to facilitate enterprise-wide risk management. Individual data will assist commanders by quickly identifying those Marines or Service Members requiring immediate command attention. Trend analysis will assist USMC commanders to implement mitigation strategies to improve overall individual/unit readiness. These records will also be used as a management tool for statistical analysis, tracking, reporting, evaluating program effectiveness, and conducting research.

DATES:

This new system of records is effective upon publication; however, comments on the Routine Uses will be accepted on or before March 24, 2021. 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: https://www.regulations.gov .

Follow the instructions for submitting comments.

*? Mail: DoD cannot receive written comments at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Comments should be sent electronically to the docket listed above.


[top] Instructions: All submissions received must include the agency name and docket number for this Federal Register document. The general policy for comments and other submissions from members of the public is to make these page 10552 submissions available for public viewing on the internet at https://www.regulations.gov as they are received without change, including any personal identifiers or contact information.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

Sally A. Hughes, FOIA/PA Program Manager (ARSF), Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps, 3000 Marine Corps Pentagon, Washington, DC 20350-3000, telephone (703) 614-4008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The "Marine Corps Risk and Resiliency Records" system of records is being established by the USMC to support Force Preservation Risk Assessments. The Marine Corps force preservation process is the formalized method used by commanders to identify individual Marine risk factors and to apply holistic risk management measures to improve individual and unit readiness. Every day, this process assists leaders across the Corps to identify those in need. However, gaps in knowledge have historically limited the effectiveness of the effort. To improve the process, the USMC is developing the CIRRAS application, which compiles individual force preservation data input by small unit leaders, medical officers, and other support staff. By presenting timely, prioritized, actionable information to those who can help Marines, and by protecting unauthorized disclosure through strict access limits and cybersecurity, leaders will be better equipped to reduce destructive behaviors in their units.

Force Preservation Risk Assessments are based on the identification and tracking of individual Service Member behaviors associated with increased risk or resiliency as defined by the Commandant's "Six Fs," as defined in Marine Corps Order 1500.61, 28 July 2017. The Six Fs are Fidelity, Fighter, Fitness, Family, Finances and Future. Force Preservation Risk Assessments include critical stressors that are environmental factors or experiences that can overtax a Service Member's coping resources. The intensity or accumulation of multiple stressors is linked to a greater likelihood of harmful reactions including death by suicide. The CIRRAS application is a networked, web-based application that captures risk, resiliency and critical stressor factors for all United States Marines and United States Armed Forces Service Members assigned to the USMC to provide Force Preservation information to the unit commander. The CIRRAS will directly support Commanders/Officers in Charge and Senior Enlisted Advisors by providing a tool to enable proactive identification and assessment of individual Marines' or Service Members' risk, resiliency, and critical stressor factors. Also, the system will allow the transfer of the same factors between commands in order to optimize individual/unit readiness and facilitate enterprise-wide risk management of individual Marines' risk status. The CIRRAS will be used by Regimental/Group Commanders through immediate supervisors (Platoon Commander/Officers in Charge) of all United States Marines and United States Armed Forces Service Members assigned to the USMC in accordance with Marine Corps Order 5100.29B, Marine Corps Safety Program; MCO 1500.60, Force Preservation Council (FPC) Program; and other Force Preservation Directives.

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 .

In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-108, the DoD has provided a report of this system of records to the OMB and to Congress.
