SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The adoption and implementation of SharePoint represents the Department of the Treasury's effort to create a system for Treasury employees, contractors, grantees, detailees, and interns with access to Treasury's Enterprise Content Management Environment to communicate in order to increase operational efficiencies. The User Profile service application stores information about users in a central location. Social computing features, such as tagging, and newsfeeds, use this information to facilitate productive interactions that enable users to collaborate efficiently. The department email directories (e.g., name, department, office phone number) auto-populate User Profile Services. In addition, the Profile Page feature gives individuals the option to provide additional information, such as skills and past projects.

The report of a new system of records, as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), has been provided to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform of the House of Representatives, the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate, and the Office of Management and Budget.
