Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to maintain information for operations to control and track access to secure networks, computer systems, and databases. Records are maintained on electronic storage media. The SSNs are used to allow Non-DoD individuals to create a user account within AMPS, and for AMPS to track those users. Additionally, the SSN is used for systems that limit system rights based on that number. For example, in the Defense Civilian Pay System (DCPS), a user is not allowed to access their pay records, and that is managed through the SSN.

Affected Public: Individuals or Households

Annual Burden Hours: 209 hours

Number of Respondents: 2500

Average Burden per Response: 5 minutes

Summary of Information Collection

AMPS does not extract or interface with any other system to obtain PII information for users. All users are required to set-up a user account to use AMPS. AMPS is Common Access Card (CAC) enabled and DoD employees will access AMPS via their CAC. AMPS can extract user data from the Electronic Data Interchange-Personnel Identifier (EDI/PI) to help set-up the user account. Any user that is not issued a CAC will enter their information into AMPS to create a user account, and will be given a user ID and password to access the system.

The following are examples of information collected from users: User names; SSN (for individuals not in possession of a CAC such as newly hired Federal employees); U.S. citizenship status (i.e., U.S. Citizen, Foreign National, other); physical and electronic address; work telephone numbers; organization; office symbol; contractor/employee status; computer logon addresses, passwords, and user identification codes; type of access/permissions required; verification of need to know; dates of mandatory information assurance awareness training; and security clearance data. The system also captures details about programs, databases, functions, and sites accessed and/or used; dates and times of use; and information products created, received, or altered during use. The records may also contain details about access or functionality problems telephoned in for technical support along with resolution. For individuals who telecommute from home or a telework center, the records may contain the electronic address and telephone number at that location. For contractors, the system also contains the company name, contract number, and contract expiration date.
