In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act, these records or information contained therein may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, and disposing of records in the system:

Storage:

Electronic storage media.

Retrievability:

Safeguards:

Records are stored in office buildings protected by guards, controlled screening, use of visitor registers, electronic access, and/or locks. Access to records is limited to individuals who are properly screened and cleared on a need-to-know basis in the performance of their official duties. Passwords and digital signatures are used to control access to the systems data, and procedures are in place to deter and detect browsing and unauthorized access. Physical and electronic access are limited to persons responsible for servicing and authorized to use the record system.

Retention and disposal:

Records are considered temporary in nature and cutoff at the end of each payroll year. The records are then destroyed after GAO audit or when 6 years old, whichever is sooner. Records stored on electronic media are destroyed by degaussing and hardcopy output products are destroyed by shredding, burning, or pulping.
