FIA-12-0069 - In the Matter of Mary Ann Parker

You are here

On November 16, 2012, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) issued a decision denying an appeal (Appeal) from a Privacy Act determination issued by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office (ORO). Specifically, the Appellant, Mary Ann Parker, contested the adequacy of the ORO’s search in response to her Privacy Act request, contending that additional records should have been provided and that records from a plant that she previously worked at, the Pinellas Plant, should have been sent to the Albuquerque Office. The OHA reviewed the ORO’s description of its search and determined that the ORO conducted an adequate search for responsive documents. Moreover, the OHA informed the Appellant that her records that were previously located at the Albuquerque Office were subsequently transferred to Legacy Management. Hence, the Albuquerque Office did not have her records, and accordingly, her Privacy Act request was also being fulfilled by Legacy Management. Therefore, the OHA denied the Appeal.
