Systems of Records
The Privacy Act defines “systems of records” as “a group of any records under the control of any agency from which information is retrieved by the name of the individual or by some identifying number, symbol, or other identifying particular assigned to the individual.” Federal agencies are required to make the public aware of what “systems of records” they maintain.
The table below lists and provides links to the Commission’s “Systems of Records.”
