Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) requires improved processes and technology for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of all Federal employees and contractors who require long-term (6 month and over) access to federally controlled facilities and/or information systems. The requirements of HSPD-12 do not apply to short-term guests and occasional visitors to the Department, its bureaus, or any of its facilities.

The purpose for improving the process for identity verification is to have a stronger Federal-wide standard for “identity proofing” and meet the objective of HSPD-12 that requires Federal agencies to have a “secure and reliable form of identification” for federal employees or applicants and a contractor's employees who are applying for a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card. At the time of “identity proofing” and registration an applicant for a Treasury job, a Treasury employee or contractor's employee will need to produce two documents verifying the individual's identity, one of which must be a government-issued photo ID and one other identity-source document listed on Form I-9, such as a valid state driver's license, to receive a PIV Card.

The alteration to the notice adds language under the following headings: “Categories of individuals covered by the system,” “Categories of records in the system,” and “Authority for maintenance of the system.”

The notice for the system of records was last published in its entirety on August 1, 2005, at 70 FR 44187.

The altered system of records report, as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act, has been submitted to the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight of the House of Representatives, the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate and the Office of Management and Budget, pursuant to Appendix I to OMB Circular A-130, “Federal Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals,” dated November 30, 2000.
