(a) The training shall include information regarding information privacy laws, regulations, policies and procedures governing the Department's collection, maintenance, use, or dissemination of personal information.

Personnel of particular concern include, but are not limited to medical, personnel, and intelligence specialists, finance officers, DoD personnel who may be expected to deal with the news media or the public, special investigators, paperwork managers, and other specialists (reports, forms, records, and related functions), computer systems development personnel, computer systems operations personnel, statisticians dealing with personal data and program evaluations, contractors that will either operate systems of records on behalf of the Component or will have access to such systems incident to performing the contract, and anyone responsible for implementing or carrying out functions under this part.
