Privacy Impact Assessments
The E-Government Act of 2002 requires Federal agencies to prepare a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) before developing or procuring information technology (IT) that collects, maintains, or disseminates information in identifiable form about members of the general public (not employees of the Federal Government). Similarly, Federal agencies must prepare a PIA before initiating a new electronic collection of information from 10 or more persons, consistent with the Paperwork Reduction Act, when such collections will contain information in identifiable form. In addition, any PIA that involves the collection, maintenance, or dissemination of information in identifiable form about members of the general public will be made publicly available.
The NRC makes these PIAs available to the public via this Web page and in the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).
