The collection of personally identifiable information through this website is authorized by 10 U.S.C. Section 3013, Secretary of the Army; AR 600-20, Army Command Policy and E.O. 9397(SSN).


The principal purpose of this website is to provide information about career opportunities for medical professionals with the Defense Health Agency, and to enable interested candidates to apply for open positions.


Information presented on the DHA website is considered public information and may be distributed or copied. Use of appropriate byline/photo/image credits is requested. Personally identifiable information (PII) gathered through the DHA website is utilized by the U.S. Defense Health Agency solely for purposes associated with assessing your employment application. In keeping with this purpose, your PII may also be shared with other government agencies and organizations as follows:

If you complete an online application:

The Office of Personnel Management is authorized to rate applicants for Federal jobs under sections 1302, 3301, and 3304 of title 5 of the U.S. Code. Section 1104 of title 5 allows the Office of Personnel Management to authorize other Federal Agencies to rate applicants for Federal jobs. We need the information you put on this form to see how well your education and work skills qualify you for a Federal job. We also need information on matters such as citizenship and military service to see whether you are affected by laws we must follow in deciding who may be employed by the Federal Government.

Executive Order 9397 (November 22, 1943) requires that any person doing business with the Federal government must furnish a Social Security Number or tax identification number. We must have your Social Security Number (SSN) to identify your records because other people may have the same name and birth date. The Office of Personnel Management may also use your SSN to make requests for information about you from employers, schools, banks, and others who know you, but only as allowed by law or Presidential directive. The information we collect by using your SSN will be used for employment purposes and also for studies and statistics that will not identify you.

Information we have about you may also be given to Federal, State, and local agencies for checking on law violations or other lawful purposes. We may send your name and address to State and local Government agencies, Congressional and other public offices, and public international organizations, if they request names of people to consider for employment. We may also notify your school placement office if you are selected for a Federal job.

Giving us your SSN or any of the other information is voluntary. However, we cannot process your application, which is the first step toward getting a job, if you do not give us the information we request.

If you send us an e-mail or a forms request:

If you choose to provide us with personal information as in an e-mail to one of our Online e-mail boxes, or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us through our web site, we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We treat e-mails and forms request the same way we treat letters sent to the Defense Health Agency, but we do not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to you. We collect personally identifiable information (name, email address, Social Security number, or other unique identifier) only if specifically and knowingly provided by you. We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law. Moreover, we do not create individual profiles with the information you provide or give it to any private organizations. We do not collect information for commercial marketing.
