Department of Homeland Security, Updated Policy for DHS Application of FOIA Exemption 6 to DHS Personnel Information Contained within Agency Records (June 5, 2013) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This memorandum provides updated guidance to ensure the Department of Homeland Security processes personnel information contained within agency records in a consistent manner.

Additionally, the memorandum asserts that federal employees generally have no expectation of privacy regarding their names, titles, grades, salaries, bonuses, position descriptions, and duty stations, and as such, this information is generally releasable under the FOIA. The memorandum provides three common situations, however, in which the Department is likely to withhold the personally identifiable information (PII) of certain DHS personnel on a case-by-case basis.
