Privacy and Investment Review

The Military Health System (MHS) Defense Business Information Technology Certification (DBITC) program was established to ensure system funding was certified in accordance with the National Defense Authorization Act of 2005. The MHS DBITC program relies on the Defense Health Activity (DHA) Privacy and Civil Liberties Office (Privacy Office) to serve as a leader to ensure privacy considerations are taken into account for MHS systems that are funded through appropriations from the Defense Health Program (DHP).

The DHA Privacy Office provides guidance on privacy matters to the MHS DBITC and MHS program offices. This guidance includes review of documents, including Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) and System of Records Notices (SORNs), to ensure privacy requirements are integrated into the life cycle of MHS systems, which increases efficiency and compliance. The DHA Privacy Office leverages an established privacy framework to ensure program offices are adhering to requirements prior to certification, and coordinates with Defense Health Program System Inventory Reporting Tool (DHP-SIRT) administrators to ensure privacy information is accurately reflected for MHS Investment Review activities.

“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."
