General Accounting Office, Privacy Policy Activities of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (GGD-84-93) (Aug. 31, 1984) (full-text).

Overview Edit

Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the privacy policy activities of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).

NTIA's involvement in privacy policy began after a presidential memorandum recommended that NTIA:

(1) coordinate work on a legislative package relating to privacy policy;
(2) develop and set forth privacy policy initiatives in the international area; and
(3) study the privacy consequences of the growth of information technology.

The GAO found that:

(1) since 1981, when work on the legislative package was completed, NTIA has devoted little staff time to legislative privacy initiatives;
(2) NTIA has played a substantial role in developing voluntary international privacy guidelines; and
(3) NTIA has published a collection of papers intended to encourage public debate on information and privacy policy.

The GAO noted that the NTIA budget reflects the decrease in privacy policy activities.
