- Employment-related records (excluding records being maintained in Privacy Act systems of records);
- Confidential JSA financial information and correspondence between JSA and other segments of JSA located away from the lab; procurement records (excluding records that are described as the property of the government under 48 CFR (DEAR) 970.5204-9, Accounts, Records and Inspection);
- legal records; and
- certain records maintained pursuant to the technology transfer clause of the contract.
Four primary laws related to federal records management:
- Federal Records Act of 1950, as amended
- Freedom of Information Act
- Privacy Act
- Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980
