Purpose(s):

To provide Human Resource information and system support for the DON civilian workforce worldwide to access and update their personal information, submit documents, and obtain personnel related information.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974, these records contained therein may specifically be disclosed outside the DON as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:

The DoD “Blanket Routine Uses” set forth at the beginning of Department of Navy's compilation of system of records notices apply to this system.

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

Storage:

Electronic storage media.

Retrievability:

Name, Social Security Number (SSN), internal assigned employee ID, and Billet ID number.

Safeguards:

Access to data is multi-tiered and based on a need to know, and is managed by a designated command representative knowledgeable in the area of that command's total workforce. The first tier of a user account is profile based, which limits the user to specific employee types and/or data. Users in a specific profile cannot view data outside of that profile's restrictions. The second tier further restricts access by use of permissions, which allow a user specific access to application functions. Physical access to terminals, terminal rooms, buildings and activities' grounds are controlled by locked terminals and rooms, guards, personnel screening and visitor registers. Password complexity, expiration, minimum length, and history, as well as use of profiles and permissions assists in assuring only appropriate personnel have access to data.

Retention and disposal:

Temporary records maintained at naval activities: With the exception of performance records, destroy upon separation or transfer of employee from DON or when 1 year old, whichever is sooner (if employee separates for military service or transfers to another agency as a result of a transfer of function, leave required temporary material in the folder).

Performance Ratings Records of Separating Employees: At time employee transfers or resigns, transfer performance ratings of record, close-out and summary ratings, along with the performance plan on which the most recent rating was based to the new Civilian Personnel Office (CPO) or National Personnel Records Center (NPRC).
