SELECTIVE SERVICE SYSTEM

 
Computer Matching Between the Selective Service System and the 
Department of Education

AGENCY: Selective Service System.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as 
amended by the Computer matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 
(Public Law 100-503), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
Guidelines on the Conduct of Matching Programs (54 FR 25818 (June 19, 
1989)), and OMB Bulletin 89-22, the following information is provided:
    1. Name of participating agencies. The Selective Service System 
(SSS) and the Department of Education (ED).
    2. Purpose of the match. The purpose of this matching program is to 
ensure that the requirements of Section 12(f) of the Military Selective 
Service Act [50 U.S.C. App. 462(f)] are met.
    3. Authority for conducting the matching program. Computerized 
access to the Selective Service Registrant Registration Records (SSS 
10) enables the U.S. Department of Education to confirm the 
registration status of applicants for assistance under Title IV of the 
Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended (20 U.S.C. 1070 et. 
seq.). Section 12(f) of the Military Selective Service Act, as amended 
[50 U.S.C. App. 462(f)], denies eligibility for any form of assistance 
or benefit under Title IV of the HEA to any person required to present 
himself and submit to registration under Section 3 of the Military 
Selective Service Act who fails to do so in accordance with that 
section and any rules and regulations issued under that section. In 
addition, the Military Selective Service Act and section 484(n) of the 
HEA which allows the data match to fulfill the statement requirement 
specifies that any person required to present himself and submit to 
registration under Section 3 of the Military Selective Service Act file 
a statement that he is in compliance with the Military Selective 
Service Act. Furthermore, Section 12(f)(3) of the Military Selective 
Service Act authorizes the Secretary of Education, in agreement with 
the Director of the Selective Service, to prescribe methods for 
verifying the statements of compliance filed by students.
    Section 484(n) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (20 
U.S.C. 1091), requires the Secretary of Education to conduct data base 
matches with the Selective Service System, using common demographic 
data elements, to enforce the Selective Service registration provisions 
of the Military Selective Service Act [50 App. U.S.C. 462(f)], and 
further states that appropriate confirmation of person's registration 
shall fulfill the requirement to file a separate statement of 
compliance.
    4. Categories of records and individuals covered.
    1. Federal Student Aid Application File (18-11-01). Individuals 
covered are men born after December 31, 1959, but at least 18 years old 
by June 30 of the applicable award year.
    2. Selective Service Registration Records (SSS 10).
    5. Inclusive dates of the matching program. Commence on July 1, 
2002 or 40 days after copies of the matching agreement are transmitted 
simultaneously to the Committee on Governmental Affairs of the Senate, 
the Committee on Government Operations of the House of Representatives, 
and the Office of Management and Budget, whichever is later, and remain 
in effect for eighteen months unless earlier terminated or modified by 
agreement of the parties.
    6. Address for receipt of public comments or inquires. Willie L. 
Blanding, Jr., Director of Operations, 1515 Wilson Boulevard, 
Arlington, VA 22209-2425.

    Dated: April 30, 2002.
Alfred Rascon,
Director.
