RULE 605-5.9 - Federal records

RULE 605-5.9. Federal records

Pursuant to Iowa Code section 229., the department finds that maintenance, use, or disclosure of federal records described in this rule, except as allowed by federal law and regulation, would result in denial of United States government funds, services and essential information that would otherwise definitely be available and that have been available to the department in the past. The department has authority to enter into agreements and contracts to obtain funds pursuant to Iowa Code chapter 29C. The department makes such agreements and contracts with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under the authority of Public Law 93-288 (the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act) and an Emergency Management Performance Grant Agreement which specify categories of records and information that must be kept confidential. In addition, 44 CFR 571. specifies categories of records that are exempt from disclosure under 5 U.S.C. 552. These records include those containing personally identifiable information concerning applicants to individual assistance and mitigation assistance programs that are administered by the state under a presidentially declared disaster. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Title 10 CFR 7321. relates to the physical protection of nuclear power plants and materials. This regulation requires that certain information contained in plans and documents on file with the department be kept confidential and include information concerning the physical protection at fixed sites; physical protection in transit; inspections, audits and evaluations; and correspondence insofar as it contains safeguards information.
