necessary to obtain information relevant to a conflict of interest investigation or decision; (3) to the National Archives and Records
Administration in records management inspections; (4) to the Office of Management and Budget during legislative coordination on private
relief legislation; (5) when the disclosing agency determines that the records are arguably relevant to a proceeding before a court, grand

individuals, the agency, the Federal Government, or national security, and the disclosure is reasonably necessary to assist in connection
with the agency's efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed breach or to prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm; and (10) to
another Federal agency or Federal entity, when the agency maintaining the record determines that information from this system of records
is reasonably necessary to assist the recipient agency or entity in responding to a suspected or confirmed breach or in preventing,
minimizing, or remedying the risk of harm to individuals, the recipient agency or entity, the Federal Government, or national security. Note:
When an agency is requested to furnish such records to OGE, such a disclosure is to be considered as made to those officers and
employees of the agency which co-maintains the records who have a need for the records in the performance of their official duties in
accordance with the Ethics in Government Act and other pertinent authority conferred on OGE, pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy
