DOE Privacy Impact Assessments

Required by theĀ E-Government Act of 2002, a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a decision tool used by the Department of Energy (DOE) to identify and mitigate privacy risks of systems and programs, and inform the public (1) what Personally Identifiable Information (PII) DOE is collecting; (2) why the PII is being collected; and (3) how the PII will be collected, used, accessed, shared, safeguarded, and stored.

PIAs assess risk by applying the universally recognized Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) to Department systems and programs. If a PIA is required, the program manager will work with the Departmental Elements to write the PIA for submission to the DOE Office of Privacy Management and Compliance for review and approval by the Chief Privacy Officer.

Below is a list of approved and signed PIAs. The list below is organized in alphabetical order by Departmental Element. Click on the Element's name to view the list of publicly available PIAs. PIAs are updated, reviewed, approved, and uploaded on a regular basis.
