H.5200.224.004 SECURITY REQUIREMENTS FOR HANDLING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AND PRIVACY INCIDENT REPONSE (JULY 2017)

Prescription: (1) The Contracting Officer (CO) shall include this special contract requirement in all contracts in which the contractor will have access to, process, store, or otherwise handle sensitive personally identifiable information where such contract has not otherwise been determined as “high risk” per HSAR Deviation 15-01 and thus does not include the special terms from that Deviation.

(2) Along with this special contract requirement, the CO shall likewise include HSAR 3052.204-70 “Security Requirements for Unclassified Information Technology Resources” (JUN 2006), HSAR 3052.204-71, “Contractor Employee Access” (SEP 2012), and FAR 52.224-3 “Privacy Training” (JAN 2017) in the same contract. Additionally, the CO shall add the following to paragraph (c) of FAR 52.224-3:

“Contractor employees shall satisfy this requirement by completing Privacy at DHS: Protecting Personal Information accessible at Training shall be completed within 30 days of contract award and be completed on an annual basis thereafter not later than October 31st of each year.”

(3) If a contract requirement involves only PII and does not include SPII as defined below, the CO shall delete items 1(c), 2, 3 (a), 3(b)((vii), 4(b), and 6(a) from this special contract requirement before inserting it into the contract.

1. Definitions.

(a) “Breach” (may be used interchangeably with “Privacy Incident’) as used in this clause means the loss of control, compromise, unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized acquisition, unauthorized access, or any similar situation where persons other than authorized users, and for other than authorized purpose, have access or potential access to Personally Identifiable Information, in usable form whether physical or electronic.

(b) “Personally Identifiable Information (PII)” as used in this clause means any information that permits the identity of an individual to be directly or indirectly inferred, including any other information that is linked or linkable to that individual regardless of whether the individual is a citizen of the United States, legal permanent resident, or a visitor to the United States. Examples of PII include: name, date of birth, mailing address, telephone number, Social Security Number (SSN), email address, zip code, account numbers, certificate/license numbers, vehicle identifiers including license plates, uniform resource locators (URLs), Internet protocol addresses, biometric identifiers (e.g., fingerprints), photographic facial images, or any other unique identifying number or characteristic, and any information where it is reasonably foreseeable that the information will be linked with other information to identify the individual.

(c) “Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (Sensitive PII)” as used in this clause is a subset of Personally Identifiable Information, which if lost, compromised or disclosed without authorization, could result in substantial harm, embarrassment, inconvenience, or unfairness to an individual. Complete social security numbers (SSN), alien registration numbers (A-number) and biometric identifiers (such as fingerprint, voiceprint, or iris scan) are considered Sensitive PII even if they are not coupled with additional PII. Additional examples include any groupings of information that contains an individual’s name or other unique identifier plus one or more of the following elements:

(1) Driver’s license number, passport number, or truncated SSN (such as last 4 digits)
(2) Date of birth (month, day, and year)
(3) Citizenship or immigration status
(4) Financial information such as account numbers or Electronic Funds Transfer Information
(5) Medical Information
(6) System authentication information such as mother’s maiden name, account passwords or personal identification numbers (PIN)

Other Personally Identifiable information may be “sensitive” depending on its context, such as a list of employees with less than satisfactory performance ratings or an unlisted home address or phone number. In contrast, a business card or public telephone directory of agency employees contains Personally Identifiable Information but it is not sensitive.

2. Systems Access. Work to be performed under this contract requires the handling of Sensitive PII. The Government may elect to conduct random periodic reviews to ensure that the security requirements contained in this contract are being implemented and enforced. The contractor shall provide the Government access to, and information regarding the contractor’s systems, when requested by the Government, as part of its responsibility to ensure compliance with security requirements, and shall otherwise cooperate with the Government in assuring compliance with such requirements. Government access shall include independent validation testing of controls, system penetration testing by the Government, Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) data reviews, and access by agency Inspectors General for its reviews.

3. Systems Security.

(a) In performing its duties related to management, operation, and/or access of systems containing Sensitive PII under this contract, the contractor, its employees and subcontractors shall comply with applicable security requirements described in the most current versions of DHS Sensitive System Publication 4300A or any replacement publication and rules of conduct as described in TSA Management Directive (MD) 3700.4.
(b) All Contractor-operated systems that input, store, process, output, and/or transmit SPII shall meet or exceed the continuous monitoring requirements identified in the Fiscal Year 2014 DHS Information Security Performance Plan, or successor publication. The plan is updated on an annual basis. The Contractor shall also store monthly continuous monitoring data at its location for a period not less than one year from the date the data is created. The data shall be encrypted in accordance with FIPS 140-2 Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules and shall not be stored on systems that are shared with other commercial or Government entities. The Government may elect to perform continuous monitoring and IT security scanning of Contractor systems from Government tools and infrastructure.

(c) Use of contractor-owned laptops or other media storage devices to process or store PII is prohibited under this contract until the contractor provides, and the contracting officer in coordination with CISO approves, written certification by the contractor that the following requirements are met:

(i) Laptops employ encryption using a NIST Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 or successor approved product;

(ii) The contractor has developed and implemented a process to ensure that security and other applications software are kept current;

(iii) Mobile computing devices utilize anti-viral software and a host-based firewall mechanism;

(iv) When no longer needed, all removable media and laptop hard drives shall be processed (i.e., sanitized, degaussed, or destroyed) in accordance with DHS security requirements.

(v) The contractor shall maintain an accurate inventory of devices used in the performance of this contract;

(vi) Contractor employee training requirements are covered in FAR 52.224-3.

(vii) All Sensitive PII obtained under this contract shall be removed from contractor-owned information technology assets upon termination or expiration of contractor work. Removal must be accomplished in accordance with DHS Sensitive System Publication 4300A, which the contracting officer will provide upon request. Certification of data removal will be performed by the contractor’s Project Manager and written notification confirming certification will be delivered to the contracting officer within 15 days of termination/expiration of contractor work.

4. Data Security.

(a) Contractor shall limit access to the data covered by this clause to those employees and subcontractors who require the information in order to perform their official duties under this contract.

(b) The contractor, contractor employees, and subcontractors must physically secure Sensitive PII when not in use and/or under the control of an authorized individual, and when in transit to prevent unauthorized access or loss. When Sensitive PII is no longer needed or required to be retained under applicable Government records retention policies, it must be destroyed through means that will make the Sensitive PII irretrievable. The contractor shall only use Sensitive PII obtained under this contract for purposes of the contract, and shall not collect or use such information for any other purpose without the prior written approval of the contracting officer. At expiration or termination of this contract, the contractor shall turn over all Sensitive PII obtained under the contract that is in its possession to the Government.

(c) The Contractor’s invoicing, billing, and other recordkeeping systems maintained to support financial or other administrative functions shall not maintain Sensitive PII. It is acceptable to maintain in these systems the names, titles and contact information for the COR or other Government personnel associated with the administration of the contract, as needed.

5. Breach Response. The contractor agrees that in the event of any actual or suspected breach of SPII (i.e., loss of control, compromise, unauthorized disclosure, access for an unauthorized purpose, or other unauthorized access, whether physical or electronic), it shall immediately, and in no event later than one hour of discovery, report the breach to the Contracting Officer, the Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR), and the TSA Director of Privacy Policy & Compliance (TSAprivacy@dhs.gov). The contractor is responsible for positively verifying that notification is received and acknowledged by at least one of the foregoing Government parties. The report of a breach shall not, by itself, be interpreted as evidence that the contractor failed to provide adequate safeguards for SPII.

Award fee contracts:

(a) For any portions of this contract that involve an award fee, the contractor may be awarded no award fee for any evaluation period in which there is a breach of privacy or security, including any loss of sensitive data or equipment containing sensitive data. Lost award fee due to a breach of privacy or security may not be allocated to future evaluation periods.

(b) For any portions of this contract that involve an award fee, to ensure that the final award fee evaluation at contract completion reflects any breach of privacy or security in an interim period, the overall award fee pool shall be reduced by the amount of the fee available for the period in which the breach occurred if a zero fee determination was made because of a breach of privacy or security.

6. Personally Identifiable Information Notification Requirement.

(a) The contractor shall have in place procedures and the capability to promptly notify any individual whose Sensitive PII was, or is reasonably believed to have been, breached, as determined appropriate by the Government. The method and content of any notification by the contractor shall be coordinated with, and subject to the prior approval of the Government, based upon a risk-based analysis conducted by the Government in accordance with DHS Privacy Incident Handling Guidance. Notification shall not proceed unless the Government has determined that: (i) notification is appropriate; and (ii) would not impede a law enforcement investigation or jeopardize national security.

Subject to Government analysis of the breach and the terms of its instructions to the contractor regarding any resulting breach notification, a method of notification may include letters to affected individuals sent by first class mail, electronic means, or general public notice, as approved by the Government. At minimum, a notification should include: (i) a brief description of how the breach occurred; (ii) a description of the types of personal information involved in the breach; (iii) a statement as to whether the information was encrypted or protected by other means; (iv) steps an individual may take to protect themselves; (v) what the agency is doing, if anything, to investigate the breach, to mitigate losses, and to protect against any further breaches; and (vi) point of contact information identifying who affected individuals may contact for further information.

(b) In the event that a PII breach occurs as a result of the violation of a term of this contract by the contractor or its employees, the contractor shall, as directed by the contracting officer and at no cost to the Government, take timely action to correct or mitigate the violation, which may include providing notification and/or other identity protection services to affected individuals for a period not less than18 months from discovery of the breach. Should the Government elect to provide and/or procure notification or identity protection services in response to a breach, the contractor will be responsible for reimbursing the Government for those expenses.

7. Pass-Through of Security Requirements to Subcontractors. The contractor agrees to incorporate the substance of this clause, its terms and requirements, in all subcontracts under this contract, and to require written subcontractor acknowledgement of same. Violation by a subcontractor of any provision set forth in this clause will be attributed to the contractor.

This exception does not apply to any EIT deliverable, service or item that will be used by any Federal employee(s) or member(s) of the public. This exception only applies to those contractors assigned to fulfill the obligations of this work statement and for the purposes of this requirement, are not considered members of the public.
Section 508 Compliance Requirements
36 CFR 1194.2(b) (COTS/GOTS products), When procuring a product, each agency shall procure products which comply with the provisions in this part when such products are available in the commercial marketplace or when such products are developed in response to a Government solicitation. Agencies cannot claim a product as a whole is not commercially available because no product in the marketplace meets all the standards. If products are commercially available which meet some but not all of the standards, the agency must procure the product that best meets the standards. When applying this standard, all procurements of EIT shall have documentation of market research that identify a list of products or services that first meet the agency business needs, and from that list of products or services, an analysis that the selected product met more of the accessibility requirements than the non-selected products as required by FAR 39.2. Any selection of a product or service that meets less accessibility standards due to a significant difficulty or expense shall only be permitted under an undue burden claim and requires authorization from the DHS Office of Accessible Systems and Technology (OAST) in accordance with DHS MD 4010.2.
All tasks for testing of functional and/or technical requirements must include specific testing for Section 508 compliance, and must use DHS Office of Accessible Systems and Technology approved testing methods and tools.
