Procurement System Information
HHS Consolidated Acquisition Solution (HCAS) is an initiative to reduce the number of duplicative acquisition systems, thereby streamlining and standardizing our procurement processes and systems across the Department. HCAS replaced varying Procurement Request Information System configurations that existed across HHS, and replaced legacy acquisition systems and manual processes necessary for capturing HHS acquisition transactions for integration with the Unified Financial Management System.
The System of Records Notice for HCAS can be found at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-04-19/pdf/2011-9467.pdf.
The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that agencies create and maintain, as necessary, System of Records Notices (SORN) as defined in the Privacy Act. A system of records consists of any item, collection, or grouping of information about an individual, where those records can be retrieved by the name of the individual or by some other type of identifier unique to the individual.
