MEMORANDUM FOR: EXECUTIVE STAFF

FROM: ALAN C. McMILLAN
Acting Assistant Secretary

SUBJECT: Requests for Enforcement Data from the IMIS System


It has come to my attention that requests for enforcement data from the Integrated Management Information System (IMIS) are being sent to and processed by more than one office within our Agency. These requests are coming from within as well as outside OSHA. I am concerned that inconsistent and misinterpreted data is being sent in response to these requests because the requests are being directed to the wrong, or sometimes several, offices. There should be only one source of IMIS enforcement data, and that source is the custodian of the data, the Office of Management Data Systems.

Effective immediately, any Office or Directorate needing IMIS enforcement data to respond to a FOIA or with some other external or internal need for such data, shall respond to the requestor and advise him that his request has been sent to the Office of Management Data Systems. No other office shall provide such data to requestors outside their own Office or Directorate. The Office of Field Programs will continue to be available to provide data interpretation, upon request.
