Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA)

GSA collects, maintains and uses personal information on individuals to carry out the agency's mission and responsibilities and to provide services to the public. By federal law and regulation, privacy issues and protections must be considered for information technology systems that contain any personally identifiable information. GSA uses the Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) as a key tool in fulfilling these legal and regulatory obligations. By conducting PIAs, GSA ensures that:

  • The information collected is used only for the intended purpose;
  • The information is timely and accurate;
  • The information is protected according to applicable laws and regulations while in GSA's possession;
  • The impact of the information systems on individual privacy is fully addressed; and
  • The public is aware of the information GSA collects and how the information is used.
