Access to USMS EAP records is restricted to designated USMS EAP personnel, except as otherwise permitted by law or with the written consent of the individual. Vouchers prepared to effect payment for services rendered by the contractors in performance of the contract do not contain individual identifiers. Invoices prepared by contractors located outside the Washington, DC metropolitan area are sent by first-class mail to the designated member(s) of the local contractors contracted with the USMS. In turn, invoices or other records prepared in support of payment vouchers which contain individual identifiers are hand-carried by the local contractors to the EAP Administrator who retains the supporting documentation. Records are maintained in locked metal safes. Entry to headquarters is restricted by 24-hour guard service to employees with official and electronic identification. Access to contractors records is restricted to a designated member(s) of the contractors, except as otherwise provided by law or with the written consent of the individual. Contractors records are stored in locked files also. Records, paper or electronic, are retained for three years after the individual ceases contact with the USMS EAP and/or the contractor unless a longer retention period is necessary because of pending administrative or judicial proceedings. In such cases, the records are retained for six months after the case is closed. At that time the records are destroyed by shredding (General Records Schedules 26 and 36).
