Privacy Act System of Records Notices

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) Privacy Act Issuances, 2005 Compilation Online Database contains descriptions of Federal agency systems of records. NSF Privacy Act System of Records Notices (SORNs) may be accessed at http://www.gpoaccess.gov/privacyact/2005.html. (To view the NSF SORNs, choose National Science Foundation from the list of agencies, and hit the Select button to retrieve records.)

In addition, a list of Government-Wide Privacy Act SORNs, some of which are utilized by NSF, is available at http://www.defenselink.mil/privacy/govwide/.


NSF will conduct a review of Privacy Act personally identifiable information holdings on an annual basis. The review of all personally identifiable information holdings will be in all forms, including paper and electronic formats in any information system. As part of the review, NSF will validate or revalidate the need for its personally identifiable information holdings.
