Records, Computers and the Rights of Citizens. Immediate Action


We expect that the Secretary may wish to have the report reviewed by many key officials of the Department, including the heads of each of the Department's operating agencies. Following such a review, a detailed plan to carry out the foregoing action agenda will have to be formulated.

Once such a plan has been adopted, responsibility will have to be assigned to someone to oversee its execution. To start this process we recommend that the Secretary:

  • Assign responsibility for distributing the report for review to the Executive Secretary of the Department; and
  • Assign responsibility for preparing a detailed plan to carry out the action agenda to an official in the Office of the Secretary.
