Department of Justice, Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties, Privacy Impact Assessments Official Guidance (Mar. 2012) (full-text).

Overview Edit

Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002 requires all federal agencies to conduct a PIA before developing or procuring information technology that collects, maintains, or disseminates information that is in identifiable form or before initiating a new collection of information that will be collected, maintained, or disseminated using information technology and that includes any information in identifiable form in certain circumstances involving the public.

In August 2010, the Justice Department's Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties (OPCL) revised the Department's PIA template to better assist DOJ components in conducting their PIAs. This guidance is designed to supplement the revised DOJ PIA template by providing DOJ personnel with guidance on how to effectively conduct a PIA and how to properly document this assessment.
