Role of the Defense Health Agency (DHA) Privacy and Civil Liberties Office

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. The DHA Privacy and Civil Liberties Office helps assure compliance with the requirements of the Privacy Act and DoD 5400.11-R by:

  • Serving as the point-of-contact for program managers for review of policies and practices that apply to new or existing DHA systems of records.
  • Coordinating the drafting of the system of records notice (SORN) required in order to collect information that will be stored in a system of records as necessary regarding development, alterations, amendments, changes, or deletions, for submission to the Defense Privacy and Civil Liberties Office.
  • Maintaining the DHA inventory of SORNs.

The SORNs listed below are all assigned to DHA. Some SORNs may have a system identifier starting with a "D" because of that SORN's previous assignment to the Office of Secretary of Defense/Joint Staff and will soon be republished to have a system identifier starting with an "E."

“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."
