Exemptions to the Privacy Act

Under subsection (k) of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, investigatory material compiled for law enforcement purposes in the following systems is exempt from certain Privacy Act requirements: FRTIB-2 (Personnel Security Investigation Files), FRTIB-13 (Fraud and Forgery Records), FRTIB-14 (FRTIB Legal Case Files), FRTIB-15 (Internal Investigations of Harassment and Hostile Work Environment Allegations).

If, however, you are denied any right, privilege, or benefit that you would otherwise be entitled to by federal law, or for which you would otherwise be eligible, as a result of the maintenance of these records, the material will be provided to you except to the extent that the disclosure of the material would reveal the identity of a source who furnished information to the Government with an express promise of confidentiality. See 55 Fed. Reg. 18851, 18856 (May 7, 1990).
