Site Security

For security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, specialized software programs are used to monitor network traffic and to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise to cause damage to this government computer system. These programs collect no information that would directly identify individuals, but they do collect information that could help us identify someone attempting to tamper with this Web site.

If you use this system, you should understand that all activities may be monitored and recorded. Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring. WARNING -- If such monitoring reveals possible evidence of criminal activity, monitoring records may be provided to law enforcement officials.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, we make no other attempts to identify individual users or their usage habits. We only use raw monitoring data logs for determining trends in usage patterns and in diagnosing system problems.

FOIA Notice

In most cases, it will not be necessary for members of the public to invoke the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (Title 45, Code of Federal Regulations, chapter 21, part 2105) since the Commission routinely and promptly responds to informal requests from concerned citizens to review a wide variety of agency documents. The Commission makes every effort to post agendas for upcoming meetings and draft documents relevent to those meetings in a timely manner. Materials such as agendas, meeting minutes, recommendation letters and actions taken under the Shipstead-Luce and Old Georgetown Acts are available on this website, dating to October 2002.

Documents dated prior to October 2002 are readily available by contacting the Commission office. Depending on the information requested, Commission staff may be able to mail, fax, or electronically transmit the materials to you. In some cases, they will request that you come to the office to review the materials, and in some instances there may be a nominal charge for photocopying.

CFA.gov links to other websites that provide additional information on topics under the purview of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts. CFA.gov primarily links to official government sites, but will also include non-government sites of various organizations whose work is related to the work of the Commission. Commission staff evaluates all outside links using the following criteria:

  • Is the website an official government-owned or supported website?
  • Does the website provide official government information or services?
  • Does the website complement existing information, products and services on CFA.gov?
  • Is the website accessible and applicable to a wide audience of the general public?
  • Does the website's information appear to be accurate and current?
  • Does the website's approach to the privacy of personal information appear to be consistent with the government's privacy and security policies?

Part 1614. The specific data to be posted is described in section 301(b) of the Act and 29 CFR 1614.704.

One complaint was filed against the Commission of Fine Arts during FY 2005 under the Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (the No Fear Act).
