Response DM 3515-002, section e states:

Where Public Affairs systems of records are involved:

  • 1.

    Individuals must beinformed in writing of the principal purpose and routine uses of the information being collected from them;

  • 2.

    Information collected for a particular purpose should not be used for another purpose without the subject’s consent unless such other uses are specifically authorized or mandated by law; and

3.

Any information used must be sufficiently accurate, relevant, timely, and complete to assure fair treatment of the individual.
