    2. (2) Create, collect, use, process, store, maintain, disseminate, disclose, dispose, or otherwise handle personally identifiable information on behalf of an agency; or

    3. (3) Design, develop, maintain, or operate a system of records (see also FAR subpart 24.3 and 39.105).

  3. (c)

    1. (1) “Operation of a system of records,” as used in this clause, means performance of any of the activities associated with maintaining the system of records, including the collection, use, and dissemination of records.

Alternate I (Jan2017). As prescribed in 24.302 (b), if the agency specifies that only its agency-provided training is acceptable, substitute the following paragraph (c) for paragraph (c) of the basic clause:

(c)The contracting agency will provide initial privacy training, and annual privacy training thereafter, to Contractor employees for the duration of this contract.
