Office of Management and Budget, OMB Circular No. A-108: Responsibilities for the Maintenance of Records About Individuals by Federal Agencies (July 1, 1975), as amended.

Overview Edit

This Circular defined agency responsibilities for implementing the Privacy Act of 1974, including meeting the publication requirements, providing adequate safeguards over personal records, and establishing a program for periodically reviewing policies and practices to assure compliance with the Act.

The Circular made agency heads responsible for conducting training for all personnel who are in any way involved in maintaining Privacy Act records for the purposes of (1) apprising them of their Privacy Act responsibilities and (2) familiarizing them with agency procedures for implementing the Privacy Act.

In a December 1985 revision, OMB strengthened its instructions and made agency heads responsible for annually reviewing agency training practices to ensure that all agency personnel are familiar with the Act's requirements, agency implementing regulations, and any special requirements that their jobs entail.

This Circular was rescinded by OMB Circular No. A-130.
