Description of Computer Matching Program: The General Services Administration (GSA), Office of Inspector General (OIG) has proposed this Computer Matching Agreement to identify individuals who are improperly receiving transit benefits. Only current GSA employees are entitled to receive transit benefits from GSA. The OIG proposes to compare records in two GSA systems of records, transportation benefit records and payroll records, to identify any person receiving transit benefits from GSA who is not a GSA employee. No action will be taken based solely on the results of the match; rather, the OIG will evaluate the results of the match and other relevant information to help identify and/or recover any erroneous payments. The GSA will provide the subject of each verified match at least 30 days to contest the findings before a final determination is made about the validity of the claim and recovery action is initiated. The subject will be given written notice of adverse information and the basis for questioning his/her eligibility. The notice will include instructions on how to refute the questioned payment. All information obtained and/or generated as part of this computer matching program will be safeguarded in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act, other applicable laws, and GSA record safeguarding requirements, including CIO P 2100 1.F, GSA Information Technology (IT) Security Policy, and CIO 2104.1, GSA VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:52 May 19, 2010 Jkt 220001 Information Technology (IT) General Rules of Behavior.
