Before Developing a New System of Records Notice (SORN) ...

Before developing a new SORN ask yourself this question:

How does your information flow?

  • SYSTEM 1
    covered by
    SORN ID 1234
  • SYSTEM 2
    covered by
    SORN ID 1234
    (receives data from
    systems 1 & 2)

    covered under
    SORN ID 1234


Consult with your Privacy Official to check whether a SORN has been published covering your collection and verify that the data elements are covered.  

If your system is already covered by a SORN, it would negate the need to publish a duplicate system of records notice.
