Connect the DOT Application
The US Department of Transportation developed the Connect the DOT application to streamline the collection, storage, and management of data about the Department’s executive public engagements and interactions. The application automates business functions that inform the Department’s leadership about the impacts these executive-level public engagements have on the Department and its goals. The application allows the Office of Public Engagement to streamline how this data is collected, stored, and managed. The application uses the data it collects to produce reports that directly support this need.
Connect the DOT is not publicly available and does not solicit information from the public. However, information is collected in the course of a meeting such as business contact information including name, organization, phone number, email address and scheduling information. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is being conducted in accordance with the E-Government Act of 2002, as the application includes contact information on members of the public.
