From the Introduction: "Section 803 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Pub. L. [Public Law] No. 110-53, 121 Stat. [Statutes] 266, 361-62 (codified at 42 U.S.C. [United States Code] § 2000ee-1(f)) (hereinafter 'Section 803'), requires the Attorney General to designate a senior official to serve as his principal advisor on privacy and civil liberties matters and imposes quarterly reporting requirements on certain activities of such official. [...] The Department of Justice's Chief Privacy and Civil Liberties Officer (CPCLO) in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General serves as this principal advisor to the Attorney General and is supported by the Department's Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties (OPCL). Specifically, Section 803 requires quarterly reports related to the discharge of certain privacy and civil liberties functions of the Department's CPCLO, including information on: the number and types of privacy reviews undertaken by the CPCLO; the type of advice provided and the response given to such advice; the number and nature of the complaints received by the department, agency, or element concerned for alleged violations; and a summary of the disposition of such complaints, the reviews and inquiries conducted, and the impact of the activities of such officer. [...] Many of these functions are discharged, on behalf of the CPCLO, by the Department's OPCL. To provide a standard reportable framework, the Department has coordinated with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in order to tailor the report to the missions and functions of the Department's CPCLO."
