POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING, RETAINING, AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

STORAGE:

Information in the Cadapult Space Management System (CSMS) consists of electronic data, files, and records, which are housed in the FCC's computer network databases.

RETRIEVABILITY:

Information in the CSMS information system is retrieved by the FCC employee or contractor's name, workspace location, and organizational unit, e.g., bureau/office.

SAFEGUARDS:

The CSMS information system's electronic records, data, and files are maintained in the FCC's computer network databases. Access to the information in these databases is restricted to authorized CMS supervisors, staff, and contractors and to staff and contractors in the Information Technology Center (ITC), who maintain the FCC's computer network databases. Other FCC employees and contractors may be granted access on a “need-to-know” basis. The FCC's computer network databases are protected by the FCC's security protocols, which include controlled access, passwords, and other security features. The information that is resident on the SMC database is backed-up routinely onto magnetic media. Back-up tapes are stored on-site and at a secured, off-site location.

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL:

The FCC maintains information about the FCC employee and/or contractor only as long as he/she works at the Commission. The records in this system are deleted entirely upon the FCC employee's retirement, voluntary resignation, transfer, or re-assignment outside the Commission, and when the contractor is no longer working at the Commission. The CMS staff uses a sign-out procedure to verify that the FCC employee or contractor is no longer working at the Commission, then the individual's information is deleted from the CSMS system.
