PIA Summary for the Integrated Decision System (IDS)

The Integrated Decision System (IDS) project involves the modernization of the Parole Board of Canada (PBC)'s Offender Management System (OMS) from a DOS-based system to Windows-based. IDS will replace the legacy PBC system with new modules providing enhanced functionality, a better user experience, expandability and increased speed to accommodate PBC's evolving business needs. At this point, IDS is used primarily as a case management, file management, scheduling and appeals management system.

An action plan was setup in order to mitigate, reduce and/or eliminate the low to moderate identified privacy risks outlined in the PIA.

In order to ensure compliance with the Privacy Act and associated Treasury Board Secretariat privacy policies, this Privacy Impact Assessment examined privacy risks associated with the IDS. The Privacy Impact Assessment's analysis of the risks was made against 10 universal privacy and fair information practice principles of the Canadian Standards' Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information.

The Parole Board of Canada takes the protection of Canadians' information very seriously. An action plan was setup in order to mitigate the low to moderate identified privacy risks associated with accountability, purpose, safeguards and limiting use, disclosure and retention. With the implementation of this action plan, privacy risks will be mitigated, reduced or eliminated.
