Office of Management and Budget, President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency, Model Control System and Resource Document for Conducting Computer Matching Projects Involving Individual Privacy Data (Dec. 29, 1983) (full-text (App. C)).
This document provides an approach to conducting computer matching projects which meets the requirements of the OMB Matching Guidelines. Specifically, it:
- Provides background and definitive information pertaining to computer matching.
- Provides a methodology for assuring that adequate protection is afforded privacy data used during computer matching.
- Presents a model control system, i.e., a set of processes and procedures for successfully undertaking computer matching programs involving individual privacy data.
The model control system is intended to assist in the preparation for and conduct of computer matching programs involving personal data files from any element of the Executive Branch of the Federal Government. Though each and every individual document or process step may not be applicable for a particular computer matching program, use of the model should assure compliance with privacy and procedural requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974 and the OMB Matching Guidelines and thus help to ensure a successful computer matching program.
