PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM:
    To centralize case-level sexual assault data involving a member of 
the Armed Forces, in a manner consistent with statute and DoD 
regulations for Unrestricted and Restricted reporting. To facilitate 
reports to Congress on claims of retaliation in connection with an 
Unrestricted Report of sexual assault made by or against a member of 
the Armed Forces. Records may also be used as a management tool for 
statistical analysis, tracking, reporting, evaluating program 
effectiveness, conducting research, and case and business management. 
De-identified data may also be used to respond to mandated reporting 
requirements. The DSAID File Locker, a separate module within the 
system, is used to maintain Victim Reporting Preference Statements and 
DoD Sexual Assault Forensic Examinations (SAFEs) to ensure compliance 
with federal records retention requirements and allow victims and 
reporters to access to these forms for potential use in Department of 
Veterans Affairs (DVA) benefits applications.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    Victims and/or alleged perpetrators in a sexual assault involving a 
member of the Armed Forces, including: Active duty Army, Navy, Marine 
Corps, and Air Force members; active duty Reserve members and National 
Guard members covered by Title 10 or Title 32; service members who were 
victims of a sexual assault prior to enlistment or commissioning; 
military dependents age 18 and older; DoD civilians; DoD contractors; 
other Federal government employees; U.S. civilians; and foreign 
military members who may be lawfully admitted into the U.S. or who are 
not covered under the Privacy Act. Sexual assault victims, family 
members, bystanders, witnesses, first responders, or other parties 
(e.g., co-workers and friends) who report (hereafter ``retaliation 
reporters''), and/or are the alleged perpetrators of (hereafter 
``alleged retaliators'') retaliation related to reports of sexual 
assault involving a member of the Armed Forces, including: Active duty 
Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force members; active duty Reserve

number, and/or SARC affiliation may be maintained as metadata. Last 
four of the SSN, date of birth, mother's maiden name, and state or

Records; (2) the DoD has determined that as a result of the suspected 
or confirmed breach there is a risk of harm to individuals, the DoD 
(including its information systems, programs, and operations), the 
Federal Government, or national security; and (3) the disclosure made 
to such agencies, entities, and persons is reasonably necessary to 
assist in connection with the DoD's efforts to respond to the suspected 
or confirmed breach or to prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm.
    h. To another Federal agency or Federal entity, when the DoD 
determines that information from this System of Records is reasonably

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF RECORDS:
    Paper file folders and electronic storage media.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETRIEVAL OF RECORDS:
    For Unrestricted Reports: Victim and retaliation reporter records 
are retrieved by first name, last name, identification number and type 
of identification provided, DSAID control number, and/or retaliation 
control number assigned to the incident. Alleged perpetrator or 
retaliator records are retrieved by first name, last name, and/or 
identification number and type of identification provided. For 
Restricted Reports: Victim Preference Reporting Statements and SAFE 
Reports are retrieved by year of report, SARC's assigned location, 
DSAID Control Number, and/or SARC affiliation, as well as victim 
answers to the encryption key questions (last four of the SSN, date of 
birth, and mother's maiden name or state/country of birth) for 
Restricted Reports.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF RECORDS:
    Temporary. Cutoff cases at the end of the fiscal year and destroy 
50 years thereafter.

ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS:
    Records are maintained in a controlled facility. Physical entry is 
restricted by the use of guards, identification badges, key cards, and 
locks. Access to case files in the system is role-based and requires 
the use of a Common Access Card (CAC) and password. Access rights and 
permission lists for SARCs are granted by Military Service Sexual 
Assault Prevention and Response program managers through the assignment 
of appropriate user roles. Access rights and permission lists for 
authorized military Service Legal Officer and Program Managers are 
granted by the DSAID Program Manager through the assignment of 
appropriate user roles. Periodic security audits are also conducted. 
Technical safeguards include firewalls, passwords, encryption of data, 
and use of a virtual private network. Access is further restricted to 
authorized users on the nonsecure internet protocol router network and 
with a CAC. In addition, the local drive resides behind a firewall and 
the direct database cannot be accessed from the outside of it. Victim 
Preference Statements and SAFE Reports associated with Restricted 
Reports are also protected by system administrative roles, and by 
document level encryption, where victims are able to provide encryption 
key data.
