Computer Matching

The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (5 U.S.C. 552a(o)) amended the Privacy Act by describing the manner in which computer matching involving Federal agencies could be performed and by adding certain protections for individuals applying for and receiving Federal benefits.

As amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act, the Privacy Act requires Federal agencies involved in computer matching programs to:

  • Negotiate written agreements with the other agency or agencies participating in the matching programs;
  • Obtain the relevant Data Integrity Boards' approval of the match agreements;
  • Furnish detailed reports about matching programs to Congress and Office of Management and Budget (OMB);
  • Notify applicants and beneficiaries that their records are subject to matching; and
  • Verify match findings before reducing, suspending, terminating, or denying an individual's benefits or payments.

“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."
