                                Routine Uses

       Paragraph (b)(3) of section 552a permits disclosure for a routine 
   use. A routine use is a use of a record for a purpose which is 
   compatible with the purpose for which the record was collected. Each 
   routine use for which an agency may disclose a record must be 
   published in the notice of the system of records for which the use 
   will apply. Many of the systems of records maintained by the 
   Department use standard routine uses. These standard routine uses 
   were published in Appendix B to the Department's Privacy Act 
   regulations (34 CFR part 5b, May 9, 1980, 45 FR 30808). A system that 
   adopts a standard routine use refers to Appendix B. For ease of 
   reading, the routine uses listed in Appendix are appended to this 
   document before the Index of Systems and System Numbers.

         Appendix B of Departmental Regulations (34 CFR part 5b)

       Routine Uses Applicable To More Than One System of Records 
   Maintained by ED
       (1) In the event that a system of records maintained by this 
   agency to carry out its functions indicates a violation or potential 
   violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature, 
   and whether arising by general statute or particular program statute, 
   or by regulation, rule or order issued pursuant thereto, the relevant 
   records in the system of records may be referred, as a routine use, 
   to the appropriate agency, whether federal, or foreign, charged with 
   the responsibility of investigating or prosecuting such violation or 
   charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, or rule, 
   regulation or order issued pursuant thereto.
       (2) Referrals may be made of assignments of research 
   investigators and project monitors to specific research projects to 
   the Smithsonian Institution to contribute to the Smithsonian Science 
   Information Exchange, Inc.
       (3) In the event the Department deems it desirable or necessary, 
   in determining whether particular records are required to be 
   disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act, disclosure may be 
   made to the Department of Justice for the purpose of obtaining its 
   advice.
       (4) A record from this system of records may be disclosed as a 
   `routine use' to a federal, state or local agency maintaining civil, 
   criminal or other relevant enforcement records or other pertinent 
   records, such as current licenses, if necessary to obtain a record 
   relevant to an agency decision concerning the hiring or retention of 
   an employee, the issuance of a security clearance, the letting of a 
   contract, or the issuance of a license, grant or other benefit.
       A record from this system of records may be disclosed to a 
   federal agency, in response to its request, in connection with the 
   hiring or retention of an employee, the issuance of a security 
   clearance, the reporting of an investigation of an employee, the 
   letting of a contract, or the issuance of a license, grant, or other 
   benefit by the requesting agency, to the extent that the record is 
   relevant and necessary to the requesting agency's decision on the 
   matter.
       (5) In the event that a system of records maintained by this 
   agency to carry out its function indicates a violation or potential 
   violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature, 
   and whether arising by general statute or particular program statute, 
   or by regulation, rule or order issued pursuant thereto, the relevant 
   records in the system of records may be referred, as a routine use, 
   to the appropriate agency, whether state or local charged with the 
   responsibility of investigating or prosecuting such violation or 
   charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, or rule, 
   regulation or order issued pursuant thereto.
       (6) Where federal agencies having the power to subpoena other 
   federal agencies' records, such as the Internal Revenue Service or 
   the Civil Rights Commission, issue a subpoena to the Department for 
   records in this system of records, the Department will make such 
   records available.
       (7) Where a contract between a component of the Department and a 
   labor organization recognized under E.O. 11491 provides that the 
   agency will disclose personal records relevant to the organization's 
   mission, records in this system of records may be disclosed to such 
   organization.
       (8) Where the appropriate official of the Department, pursuant to 
   the Department's Freedom of Information Regulation determines that it 
   is in the public interest to disclose a record which is otherwise 
   exempt from mandatory disclosure, disclosure may be made from this 
   system of records.
       (9) The Department contemplates that it will contract with a 
   private firm for the purpose of collating, analyzing, aggregating or 
   otherwise refining records in this system. Relevant records will be 
   disclosed to such a contractor. The contractor shall be required to 
   maintain Privacy Act safeguards with respect to such records.
       (10) To individuals and organizations, deemed qualified by the 
   Secretary to carry out specific research solely for the purpose of 
   carrying out such research.
       (11) Disclosures in the course of employee discipline or 
   competence determination proceedings.

   mediate disputes is relevant and necessary to the administrative 
   litigation, the Department may disclose those records as a routine 
   use to the adjudicative body, individual, or entity.
       (d) Parties, counsels, representatives and witnesses. If the 
   Department determines that disclosure of certain records to a party, 
   counsel, representative or witness in litigation or an administrative 
   proceeding in which the Department has an interest is relevant and
