FAR RIN: 9000-AM02 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: FAR Case 2010-013, Privacy Training 
Abstract: DoD, GSA, and NASA will publish a proposed rule. This rule develops a new FAR clause to ensure that all contractors are required to complete training in the protection of privacy and the handling and safeguarding of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). A number of agencies currently require that contractors who handle personally identifiable information or operate a system of records on behalf of the Federal Government complete agency-provided privacy training. However, in some circumstances an agency may provide a contractor the Privacy Act requirements, and the contractor will train its own employees, and shall upon request, provide evidence of privacy training for all applicable employees. The proposed FAR language provides flexibility for agencies to conduct the privacy training or require the contractor to conduct the privacy training.
