The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is responsible for reducing deaths, injuries, and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes on our nation’s roadways. NHTSA develops and enforces Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), conducts research on behavioral and vehicle safety, develops traffic safety programs and countermeasures, and oversees vehicle safety defect investigations, recalls and remedies. To carry out its mission, NHTSA partners with a wide range of stakeholder organizations at the federal, State, and local levels.
NHTSA’s Office of Government Affairs, Policy and Strategic Planning developed a stakeholder database that allows NHTSA to more effectively maintain contact information and manage communications with its partners. The Stakeholder Contact Database contains minimal amount of business contact information such as the name of an official contact for the organization, the contact’s business email and telephone number(s), and the organization’s business address. This information is used to send emails to keep stakeholders informed on NHTSA events, initiatives, or newly released publications. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is being conducted in accordance with the E-Government Act of 2002, as the database includes the professional contact information of members of the public.
