Computer Matching Agreements Cmas

By Zach Arnold | December 5, 2020

Print Friendly and PDF

Under the Data Protection Act 1974, a computer matching program is required for computer-assisted comparisons of two or more automated data sets or a non-federal registration system to determine or verify eligibility or compliance, as these are cash or in-kind payments or payments made under federal service programs. The department requires that THE CMAs be developed and approved for each matching program within the meaning of the statute. In accordance with Article 5.C No. 552a (o), records contained in a data system may only be disclosed to a receiving agency or a non-federal agency for use in a computer matching program (CMA) between the source agency and the receiving agency or a non-federal agency. The letter from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) A-108, Section 14, requires agencies to submit an annual matching activity report to the OMB. The ministry reports annually to the OMB on its matching activities. The ministry`s 2019 activity report is a written agreement between the source agency and the recipient agency (or non-federal agency) that defines the terms of the matching program. The provisions of the Computerized Data Protection Match Act apply to a wide range of federal computer clearing activities for the purpose of determining or verifying eligibility or compliance, as they relate to in-kind or in-kind benefits or payments under federal benefit programs. An agreement between the Ministry of Finance and another federal agency or non-federal authority can last up to 18 months and be extended by an additional 12 months.

The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (the Act), Pub.L.100-503, amends the Privacy Act of 1974 and establishes procedural safeguards that compromise the use of Privacy Act data by authorities in the execution of certain types of computerized matching programs. The law regulates the use of computer registration by federal authorities, who are required to keep personally identifiable data records in a recording system subject to the Data Protection Act. The law requires agencies to have written agreements setting out the conditions under which matches must be implemented. The law applies to computerized comparison between federal authorities of two or more automated data sets (or federal personnel or wage settlement systems) or between a federal authority and a non-federal authority. Computer matching programs are more often indicated than computer or CMA agreement agreements. HHS implements intercomputer programs with other federal authorities and with public authorities. Below is a complete list of correspondence programs currently in effect, with links to the correspondence agreement and a public notice describing each program. For more information on computer comparison, see OMB Circular A-108 (Dec 2016), HHS Data Integrity Board (DIB) Guidelines for Computer Matching Agreements (aug. 2016) and HHS DIB Annual reports. In agreement with the Office of Management and Budget Circular No.

Tables A-108 (December 23, 2016) list SSA`s annual activity reports and active SSA matching programs, including links to corresponding federal registries informing the public of programs and links to updated copies of matching agreements. The federal authority responsible for the establishment of the necessary documents, obtaining the necessary authorizations and signatures, and the publication of the notice is presented in bold.
