OWCP TRANSMITTAL No. 01-01

November 1, 2000

RELEASE - REVISIONS TO CHAPTER 1-400, FOIA AND PRIVACY ACT, PART 1 - ADMINISTRATION, FEDERAL (OWCP) PROCEDURE MANUAL

EXPLANATION OF MATERIAL TRANSMITTED:

The ability to transmit information electronically has greatly improved the speed and ease of communications within OWCP, and also between OWCP and interested parties such as employing agencies. However, this method of transmission requires special safeguards to ensure that information protected by the Privacy Act is not compromised. New paragraph 13 is added to this chapter to describe how e-mails outside OWCP should be structured so as to maintain the confidentiality of information about claimants and beneficiaries.

E-mail messages within OWCP--those exchanged between parties in a given office, or between two offices--do not require the same level of care as those traveling outside of OWCP, since they are protected by an electronic "firewall". However, as with all other letters or notes pertaining to case files, every employee should use tact and prudence in e-mail correspondence. The information sent should be limited to the amount needed to convey the intended message, and superfluous comments should be avoided.
