Privacy Program

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is committed to protecting the privacy rights of its customers, individual citizens, and employees, and also dedicated to securing the personally identifiable information (PII) requested by the Commission. The most essential function of the FERC Privacy Program is to carry out the requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974, including other privacy-related laws and policies, together with balancing the information requirements and operational needs of FERC against the privacy interest of individuals.

The Senior Agency Official for Privacy (SAOP) leads the FERC Privacy Program and has agency-wide responsibility and accountability for implementing and maintaining the Program to ensure compliance with all applicable privacy-related statutes, regulations, policies and guidance.
