The E-Government Act of 2002 requires federal agencies to conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for any information electronic collections and information technology (IT) systems that contain personally identifiable information (PII). A PIA is an analysis of how information is handled to:

  1. ensure handling conforms to applicable legal, regulatory, and policy requirements regarding privacy,
  2. determine the risks and effects of collecting, maintaining, and disseminating PII in a system, and
  3. examine and evaluate protections and alternative processes for handling information to mitigate potential privacy risks.

The PIA is also a way the Department maintains an inventory of its PII holdings, which is an essential responsibility of any agency’s privacy program. For systems that collect information from or about the public, the PIA is posted on the Department’s website as notice to the public of the existence and character of the system.
