Interconnection Security Agreement

This Interconnection Security Agreement (ISA) describes the connection of third-party software development group and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This third-party can be an individual, a State government agency, or a private company, provided the third-party is employed by, contracted to, or otherwise sponsored by a State government agency which is obligated to provide data to the FMCSA.

General Information/Data Description

3pDP provides a source of information necessary to enable software to correctly and safely interface with FMCSA software applications and data systems.

Data Sensitivity 

3pDP may contain sample data sets for use in testing. No Personal Identity Identifiers (PII) of any kind will exist in this data. Any data seen in this site is to be considered confidential and private. In some cases 3pDP may have information for developing software to enable enactment of new functionality that has not yet been made public knowledge. These items will be noted and must be kept confidential. This type of information is protected by both the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act. The following Federal guidelines and mandates were used in formulating system designs to ensure compliance with government security regulations:
  • Privacy Act of 1974
  • Computer Security Act of 1987
  • OMB Circular A130, Management of Federal Information Sources
  • Computer Matching and Privacy Act of 1988
  • OMB Circular A123, Management and Accountability Control
