About the TVA Privacy Program

The Tennessee Valley Authority Privacy Program is part of the IT Enterprise Information Security & Policy organization and is responsible for the protection of personally identifiable information (PII) at TVA.

Privacy Impact Assessments

System of Records Notices

The Privacy Act of 1974 requires TVA to inform the public when TVA collects and maintains PII in a System of Records. These public disclosures are called System of Record Notices (SORNs). The TVA SORNs can be downloaded by clicking the link below.

Privacy Act Requests

Under the Privacy Act (PA), a person may seek access to records that are retrieved by that person’s name or other personal identifier, such as Social Security number or employee identification number. Such records will be made available unless they fall within the exemptions of the PA and the FOIA. Detailed information about TVA policies and procedures for obtaining access to information under the FOIA and the PA is available in 18 CFR Part 1301, or you can call the TVA Senior Privacy Program Manager at (865) 632-2467.
