Security and Privacy Program – Security Agreement
DEAR COLLEAGUE LETTER
DATE: June 11, 2019
TO: STATE IV-D DIRECTORS
SUBJECT: Security and Privacy Program — Security Agreement
This DCL supersedes DCL-19-01, issued in March 2019. On June 11, 2019, OCSE sent the endorsed PDF copy of the OCSE Security Agreement and a Word version of the signature pages in a separate email. The Security and Privacy Program protects Federal Parent Locator Service data and other confidential child support program information, including information system safeguards, through the OCSE Security Agreement and Certification Statement.
Please note the deadline to execute and return the Security Agreement is Monday, July 22, 2019.
For any security controls that are pending implementation, please provide OCSE with a Plan of Action and Milestones or another form of documentation. Please submit the plan of action documentation with the executed Security Agreement. Upon request, we can provide the “Plan of Action and Milestones” template to help you document security controls that are pending implementation.
We appreciate your willingness to collaborate with us on developing the Security Agreement. Thank you for your comments and for your ongoing efforts to safeguard confidential child support program information.
If you have questions, please contact Linda Boyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-401-5410.
