Below is a list of all DOJ computer comparison agreements, corresponding federal notices, and the department`s matching reviews and annual reports. The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, Pub. L. No. 100-503, 102 Stat. 2507 (1988), amended the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. § 552a to include provisions relating to computer comparison activities. According to 5 U.S.C§ 552 bis (o), “no set of data contained in a registration system may be transmitted to a receiving agency or non-federal authority for use in a computer comparison program, unless otherwise agreed in writing between the source agency and the receiving agency or non-federal authority,” subject to other exceptions. A CMA is a written agreement between the source agency and the receiving (or non-federal) agency that defines the terms of the matching program. The COMPUTER reconciliation rules of the Data Protection Act apply to a wide range of IT reconciliation activities carried out by federal authorities for the purpose of establishing or verifying the merits or compliance with respect to benefits in cash or in kind or payments made under federal benefit programs. An agreement between the Ministry of Finance and another federal or non-federal authority can last up to 18 months and be extended for a further 12 months. At the end of each calendar year, the DOJ Data Integrity Board must review that year`s matching programs and report to the Attorney General and the Office of Management and Budget.
