System of Records Notice

A notice required when a federal agency creates, modifies or destroys a system of records. When the agency collects and stores Personally Identifiable Information in records, the agency is required to establish the statutory need for the collection, disclose the collection, describe its contents and declare the routine uses for that agency or any other agency that will use the information. This disclosure must be made to the Office of Management and Budget and Congress and must be published in the Federal Register in advance of the system becoming operational.
