Automated Vacancy Information Access Tool for Online Referral

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Automated Vacancy Information Access Tool for Online Referral (AVIATOR) is operated and maintained by the FAA Office of Human Resource Management (AHR) and the FAA Office of Information & Technology Services (AIT). AVIATOR is a web-based application used by current FAA employees to develop and post FAA job announcements through a system interface with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM)  web-based system, and by members of the general public to apply for FAA job openings. AVIATOR shares information with OPM’s USAJOBS to simplify and streamline the FAA application process. The FAA is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) in accordance with the E‐Government Act of 2002, because AVIATOR collects, disseminates, and uses the personally identifiable information (PII) of members of the public who apply for FAA jobs. This PIA also addresses the privacy risks for FAA employees who access the system in their official capacity.
