Proposed FAR rule would require privacy training for government contractors

18 October 2011

Proposed FAR rule would require privacy training for government contractorsOn October 14, 2011, the Department of Defense (DOD), the General Services Administration (GSA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) published a proposed rule that would amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to strengthen government contractor privacy training.

Specifically, the proposed rule would require the employees of federal government contractors who work with government records containing personally identifiable information to undergo privacy training on an annual basis. The purpose of this amendment to FAR would be to extend existing Privacy Act training requirements to the employees of government contractors who work with covered systems of records.
