POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING, RETAINING,

STORAGE:
    Records are on a computer database as well as in hard copy.

RETRIEVABILITY:
    The records in this system are indexed by the name of the 
individual and/or a number assigned to each individual.

SAFEGUARDS:
    All physical access to the Department's site, and the sites of 
Department contractors where this system of records is maintained, 
controlled and monitored by security personnel. The computer system 
employed by the Department offers a high degree of resistance to 
tampering and circumvention. This security system limits data access to 
Department and contract staff on a ``need to know'' basis, and controls 
individual users'' ability to access and alter records within the 
system. The contractor, InfoUse, has established a set of procedures to 
ensure confidentiality of data. The system ensures that information 
identifying individuals is in files physically separated from other 
research data. InfoUse will maintain security of the complete set of 
all master data files and documentation. Access to individually 
identifiable data will be strictly controlled. All data will be kept in 
locked file cabinets during nonworking hours, and work on hardcopy data 
will take place in a single room, except for data entry. Physical 
security of electronic data will also be maintained. Security features 
that protect project data include password-protected accounts that 
authorize users to use the InfoUse system but to access only specific 
network directories and network software; user rights and directory and 
file attributes that limit those who can use particular directories and 
files and determine how they can use them; e-mail passwords that 
authorize the user to access mail services and additional security 
features that the network administrator establishes for projects as 
needed.

    Records are maintained and disposed of in accordance with the 
Department's Records Disposition Schedules (ED/RDS).
