System name:

Contract Support System (CSS).

System location:

DISA Defense Enterprise Computer Center (DECC-OKC), 8705 Industrial Boulevard, Building 3900, Tinker AFB, OK 73145-2713.

Categories of individuals covered by the system:

Customer and Vendor Point of Contact (POC) is accessed only by the Federal/DoD Government contracting officials for contracting purposes.

Categories of records in the system:

Information collected and nature are defined in the following two categories:

(1) Vendor Data: Vendor POC name, vendor company name, company business size, company Dun & Bradstreet Number, company Tax Identification Number, company set aside type, company HUBZone preference, company ethnic group and company U.S. Business and Women-Owned Business Identifier, vendor work address, vendor POC work phone, and vendor POC work email. Information is used to track the POC at the vendor's organization pertaining to specific contracts awarded by Procurement and Logistics Directorate/Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (PLD/DITCO).

(2) Customer Data: Customer name, agency/organization, street address, office code, phone number and email address is stored in relation to contracts that have been awarded for them by PLD/DITCO. The system also collects the training dates for those customers that have been designated Contracting Officer Representatives (COR) or Task Monitors (TM).

Authority for maintenance of the system:

5 U.S.C. 301, Departmental Regulations; Public Law 106-229, Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act; Presidential Directive on Electronic Commerce, July 1, 1997; OASD(C3I) Policy Memorandum dated August 12, 2000, subject: Department of Defense (DoD) Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and, OASD(C3I) Memorandum dated Jan 2001, subject: Common Access Card (CAC), and Government Paperwork Elimination Act.

Purpose(s):

CSS is a client-server application used by PLD/DITCO contracting specialists, contracting officers, budget analysts and managers to enter procurement, funding, contractor and user information. CSS provides standard reporting, ad-hoc reporting and tracking capability of procurement, funding, contractor and user information via central Oracle database storage & retrieval of said 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 may be specifically disclosed outside the DoD 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 NGA's compilation of systems of records notices may also apply to this system.

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

Storage:

Electronic storage media.

Retrievability:

Safeguards:

Access to records is limited to person(s) responsible for servicing the record in performance of their official duties and who are properly screened and cleared for need-to-know. Access to computerized data is restricted by Common Access Card (CAC) and/or passwords which are changed periodically. Additionally, users receive training and awareness notices on the proper marking of sensitive information. Host Based Security System (HBSS) is operational and provides mechanisms to protect, detect, track, and report malicious computer-related activities in near real-time.
