or altered system of records.
    The two systems of records notices are discontinued for the 
following reasons:
    The Department rescinds the following Privacy Act system of records 
notice because the records maintained in this system of records notice 
are covered by OPM/GOVT-1 (General Personnel Records), last published 
in full at 77 FR 73694-73699 (Dec. 11, 2012) and last modified at 80 FR 
74815 (Nov. 30, 2015), which is a governmentwide system of records

Employees at the Department of Education (18-05-08), 64 FR 30106, 
30130-30131 (June 4, 1999).
    Thus, the records that were previously covered by this system of 
records notice will now be covered by the OPM/GOVT-1 (General Personnel 
Records) governmentwide system of records notice.
    The Department rescinds the following Privacy Act system of records 
notice because the records maintained in this system of records notice 
are covered by OPM/GOVT-2 (Employee Performance File System Records), 
last published in full at 71 FR 35342, 35347-35350 (June 19, 2006), and 
last modified at 80 FR 74815 (Nov. 30, 2015), which is a governmentwide 
system of records notice:
    2. General Performance Appraisal System (GPAS) (18-05-10), 64 FR 
30106, 30133-30135 (June 4, 1999).
    Thus, the records that were previously covered by this system of 
records notice will now be covered by the OPM/GOVT-2 (Employee 
Performance File System Records) government wide system of records 
notice.
