Privacy Act Statement

Authority - This information is being collected under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 4115, a provision of The Government Employees Training Act.

Purposes and Uses - The primary purpose of the information collected is for use in the administration of the Federal Training Program (FTP) to document the nomination of trainees and completion of training. Information collected may also be provided to other agencies and to Congress upon request. This information becomes a part of the permanent employment record of participants in training programs, and should be included in the Government wide electronic system, (the Enterprise Human Resource Integrated Systems (EHRI)) and is subject to all of the published routine uses of that system of records.

Effects and Nondisclosure - Providing the personal information requested is voluntary; however, failure to provide this information may result in ineligibility for participation in training programs or errors in the processing of training you have applied for or completed.

Information Regarding Disclosure of your Social Security Number (SSN) Under Public Law 93-579, Section 7(b) - Solicitation of SSNs by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is authorized under provisions of the Executive Order 9397, dated November 22, 1943. Your SSN will be used primarily to give you recognition for completing the training and to accumulate Government wide training statistical data and information. SSNs also will be used for the selection of persons to be included in statistical studies of training management matters. The use of SSNs is necessary because of the large number of current Federal employees who have identical names and/or birth dates and whose identities can only be distinguished by their SSNs.
