Summary of Information Collection

Respondents are NGA employees, military and contractor personnel who provide personal and professional information to the agency to conduct a polygraph examination. NGA Polygraph Records System is the central system for agency personnel to maintain and, where necessary, disseminate employee information to ensure integrity in the polygraph examination process, document polygraph results, assist with security eligibility determinations and employment or assignment suitability decisions in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and guidance, and to assist with investigations into possible violations of NGA rules and regulations, including the possible loss or compromise of classified or protected NGA information. Without the system, NGA would not be able to perform personnel security activities resulting in not being able to protect agency assets, conduct mission-related activities protecting national security.
