CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:

This system maintains information on present and former employees of, and applicants for employment with, NASA Exchanges, recreational associations, and employees' clubs at NASA Centers, and civil servant and contractor members of or participants in NASA Exchange programs, activities, clubs and/or recreational associations. Finally, the system maintains information on children, and their parents or guardians, who participate in Exchange-operated child care and educational development programs.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

For present and former employees of NASA Exchange entities including child care and educational development center programs, records in the system relate to personnel actions and determinations during their application to and employment by the NASA Exchange. Records contain information about individuals and their employment such as name, birth date, Social Security Number, home contact information, marital status, references, veteran preference, tenure, disabilities, position description, unemployment claims; salary, leave and payroll deduction information; and job performance and personnel actions.

For civil servants, contractors, and others who apply for and participate in Exchange-sponsored programs, activities, clubs and/or recreational associations, records include employee or contractor identification number, organization, location, telephone number, and other information directly related to status or interest in participation in such activities.

For current or former participants in Exchange-operated child care and development centers, records in the system include identification and other information facilitating enrollment in the entity and proper care of the children. Records include information such as home and work addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers; financial payment information; emergency contact names, addresses and telephone numbers; children's names and pictures as well as their health care and insurance providers; medical histories; physical, emotional, or other special care requirements; and child care and educational development center correspondence with parents/guardians such as authorizations to release the child to another person or field trip permission slips.

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES OF USERS AND THE PURPOSE OF SUCH USES:

Any disclosures of information will be compatible with the purpose for which the Agency collected the information. The following are routine uses: (1) To provide information to insurance carriers with regard to worker's compensation, health and accident, and retirement insurance coverages; (2) to provide employment or credit information to third parties as requested by a current or former Exchange employee to whom the records pertain; (3) to provide various Federal, State, and local taxing authorities itemized listing of withholdings for individual income taxes; (4) to respond to State employment compensation requests for wage and separation data on former employees; (5) to report previous job injuries to worker's compensation organizations; (6) for person to notify in an emergency; (7) to report unemployment records to appropriate State and local authorities; and (8) NASA standard routine uses as set forth in Appendix B.
