Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties: Privacy and Civil Liberties Activities Semi-Annual Report, First Semi-Annual Report, FY 2016   [open pdf - 316KB]

From the Introduction: "At the Department of Justice ('Department' or 'DOJ') the Chief Privacy and Civil Liberties Officer (CPCLO) in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General serves as the principal advisor to the Attorney General on all policy questions involving privacy and civil liberties, and is responsible for the Department's compliance with established privacy laws, regulations, and policies. The CPCLO is supported in this policy and compliance work by the career staff in the Department's Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties (OPCL). Specifically, Section 803 requires periodic 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 Director of OPCL, or by individual attorney-advisors in that office. 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."
