Privacy Impact Assessment

The availability of information is made all the easier today due to
the Internet, technological changes in computers, digitized networks,
and the creation of new information products. The E-Government Act of
2002 recognized that these advances also have important ramifications
for the protection of personal information contained in government
records and systems. The Act mandates an assessment of the privacy
impact of any new or substantially revised Information Technology
System. The document that results from these mandated assessments is
called a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA).

In addition, the Privacy Act of 1974 requires Federal agencies to
explain in a system of records notice the types of personally
identifiable information that they will collect, use and maintain. A
system of records notice also informs the public of the reason for
collecting the information, how it will be safeguarded and how it will
be used for agency purposes.

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program has recently published both
a Privacy Impact Assessment and a System of Records Notice for the
Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) and both are
now available for review on our website.
