See below Describe the agency's data publication process
Department of Veterans Affairs Data Publication Process (OMB MAX\/Open Data Requirement #5) The Data Publication Process is a process to determine whether data assets have a valid restriction to not release. Data is identified by customer feedback and internal data custodians. In each program office, the data asset is submitted to leadership and a Privacy Officer for review to insure that sensitive data, Protected Health Information, and Personally Identifiable Information protected by applicable privacy and confidentiality law or regulation is not released in violation of law. Questions regarding restrictions on release may be reviewed by the Office of General Counsel and elevated to the Open Data IPT if necessary. Data assets are then reviewed by the program office Open Data Point of Contact, certified as releasable, and published. Any data asset that contains information protected by applicable privacy and confidentiality law or regulation will not be released as Open Data without effective de-identification. When considering whether information is adequately de-identified for release, an assessment of risk for possible re-identification must be made. Record level data will not be released if the assessment finds a risk of re-identification. For example, health care records that have been de-identified pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) safe harbor criteria, but which in combination with other available information and technology could foreseeably be re-identified (i.e., the mosaic effect) will not be released. Proposed changes to narratives will be reviewed quarterly and approved by an integrated data council.
