AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:
    42 U.S.C. 290dd, et seq. and 290ee, et seq.; 42 CFR 2.1, et seq.;

71, sec. 503 (July 11, 1987).

PURPOSE(S):
    The EAP is a voluntary program designed to assist clients in 
obtaining help in handling personal problem(s) affecting job 
performance, and to provide emotional support and assistance during 
periods of crises. Records are maintained to document and monitor 
client's participation in the EAP program; to monitor compliance with 
abeyance and back-to-work agreements; to document the nature and 
effects of the employee's personal problem(s); and to manage and 
monitor contractor performance. Routine uses of records maintained in

the EAP client to whom the records pertain is mentally incompetent or

fide medical emergency;

compromised; (2) the Department has determined that as a result of the 
suspected or confirmed compromise there is a risk of harm to economic 
or property interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security 
or integrity of this system or other systems or programs (whether 
maintained by the Department or another agency or entity) that rely 
upon the compromised information; and (3) the disclosure made to such 
agencies, entities, and persons is reasonably necessary to assist in 
connection with the Department's efforts to respond to the suspected or 
confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm.

consumer reporting agencies.

the individual ceases contact with the USMS EAP and/or the contractor 
unless a longer retention period is necessary because of pending
