As an employee of SIUE, what must I do if a document is requested, that displays an individual's SSN, and is requested by an outside agency?

Unless otherwise authorized by law, an individual's SSN will be redacted before releasing the document for public inspection or copying the document. Using SSNs requested from an individual shall be accomplished in a manner that makes the Social Security Number (SSN) easily redacted (blackened out) if required to be released as part of a public records request (Freedom of Information Act request).
