Purchase Request Information System (PRISM)

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Financial Services (ABA) Purchase Request Information System (PRISM) is used to process and track procurement documents such as purchase requests (PRs), procurement contracts (PCs), and purchase orders (POs) for products and services for the FAA. PRISM supports FAA’s business needs through the use of electronic document routing (procurement documents) and approvals, requisitioning, electronic notifications, contract management, post award processing and close-outs in order to streamline the FAA procurement processes. PRISM addresses the unique demands of the FAA’s workforce and operates under the authority of 5 United States Code (U.S.C.) 301; and 49 U.S.C. 40110 and 106(f). 

The FAA is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the PRISM system in accordance with Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002 because the system processes Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from members of the public, outside vendors/businesses that have a contracting relationship with the FAA.
