The information contained in this system of records is collected and maintained by the Office of Logistics Management, Office of Program Management and Policy (A/LM/PMP) in the administration of its responsibility for providing worldwide logistics services, professional development, and integrated support. The information collected and maintained in this system of records is necessary to ensure fiscal accountability in transporting the effects of Department of State and other Embassy employees.
Routine Uses of Records Maintained in the System, Including Categories of Users and Purposes of Such Uses:
Records in the system of records (ILMS) are used by the Department of State to ensure fiscal accountability in transporting the effects of Department of State and other Embassy employees. Users at the Department of State fall into three categories: Transportation Counselors, Shipping Contractors, and System Administrators. Transportation Counselors are Department and other USG personnel who assist with “Employee Logistics—Transportation” activities (see 14 FAM 500). Typically, Transportation Counselors assist Department of State and other Embassy employees with making shipping arrangements for unaccompanied baggage, household effects, and privately owned motor vehicles. Transportation Counselors in DOS Washington have full access to record fields related to transporting the effects of DOS and other Embassy employees. Transportation Counselors at DOS Dispatch Agencies have limited access to certain record fields. Transportation Counselors at other U.S. Government agencies are provided with limited information from certain record fields as needed. Transportation Counselors at U.S. Missions abroad (i.e., DOS general services officers and locally engaged staff in the shipping section) have read-only access to the “status tracking” portion of ILMS. Shipping Contractors are DOS and other agency contractors (consolidated receiving points at the Dispatch Agencies and commercial moving companies under contract to the U.S. Government). Shipping Contractors are provided with limited information in certain record fields, such as delivery address and telephone number. System Administrators are Department personnel and contractors who operate, support, and maintain the system of records (ILMS). System Administrators will access records only for purposes of remedying problems as a result of the activity. See also the “Routine Uses” paragraphs from the Department's Prefatory Statement.
Policies and Practices for Storing, Retrieving, Accessing, Retaining and Disposing of Records in the System:
