ABSTRACT: The Foreign Claims Settlement Commission (FCSC) established the Claims Against Libya system of records when it began adjudicating claims against Libya under the State Department Letters of Referral dated December 11, 2008 and January 15, 2009, pursuant to its ongoing authorization to adjudicate claims set forth in Title I of the International Claims Settlement Act of 1949, as amended (22 U.S.C. 1621 et seq.). The records are organized sequentially by claim number.

PURPOSE: To enable the Commission to carry out its statutory responsibility to determine the validity and amount of the claims of U.S. citizens against Libya. Upon completion of the claims adjudication process, the records system will become inactive and will be transferred to storage at the Federal Records Center.

ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: The information in the records system is available for inspection and copying, subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. §552), in the FCSC's offices during the hours of service set forth above. The information is also available upon request sent by mail, e-mail, and FAX.

AGENCY PROGRAM: The Claims Against Libya records system supports the FCSC's issuance of decisions in its ongoing adjudication of claims against Libya, and the certification of awards made in those decisions to the Department of the Treasury for payment.

SOURCES OF DATA:Most of the information in the records system has been provided by the claimants.
