Privacy Advisories

The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (Privacy Act), as implemented within the Department of Defense (DoD) by DoD 5400.11-R, applies to each system of records maintained by a DoD Component. A “system of records” is a group of records containing an individual’s personally identifiable information (PII) maintained by a DoD Component and from which the individual’s PII is retrieved by information unique to the individual. When a DoD Component solicits and collects PII, but does not maintain it in a system of records, a Privacy Act Statement is not required. However, because PII is collected, the Defense Health Agency Privacy and Civil Liberties Office uses a special notice type referred to as a “Privacy Advisory.” The purpose of a Privacy Advisory is to inform individuals why their PII is being solicited and collected, and how it will be maintained and used in lieu of being stored in, or retrieved from, a system of records.

“On October 1, 2013, the Department of Defense established the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to manage the activities of the Military Health System. These activities include those previously managed by TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), which was disestablished on the same date. During the next several months, all TMA websites will change to reflect the new DHA. We appreciate your patience during this transition."
