    (a) The Department of Corrections and the Department of

person committed to it, which shall contain the following
        (1) all information from the committing court;
        (2) reception summary;
        (3) evaluation and assignment reports and

        (13) other information that the respective Department
    determines is relevant to the secure confinement and
    rehabilitation of the committed person and any other
    pertinent data concerning the person's background,
    conduct, associations and family relationships as may be
    required by the respective Department. A current summary
    index shall be maintained on each file which shall include
    the person's known active and past gang affiliations and
    (b) All files shall be confidential and access shall be
limited to authorized personnel of the respective Department.
Personnel of other correctional, welfare or law enforcement
agencies may have access to files under rules and regulations
of the respective Department. The respective Department shall
keep a record of all outside personnel who have access to
files, the files reviewed, any file material copied, and the
purpose of access. If the respective Department or the Prisoner
Review Board makes a determination under this Code which
affects the length of the period of confinement or commitment,
the committed person and his counsel shall be advised of
factual information relied upon by the respective Department or
Board to make the determination, provided that the Department
or Board shall not be required to advise a person committed to
the Department of Juvenile Justice any such information which
in the opinion of the Department of Juvenile Justice or Board
would be detrimental to his treatment or rehabilitation.
    (c) The master file shall be maintained at a place
convenient to its use by personnel of the respective Department
in charge of the person. When custody of a person is
transferred from the Department to another department or
agency, a summary of the file shall be forwarded to the
receiving agency with such other information required by law or
requested by the agency under rules and regulations of the
respective Department.
    (d) The master file of a person no longer in the custody of
the respective Department shall be placed on inactive status
and its use shall be restricted subject to rules and
regulations of the Department.
    (e) All public agencies may make available to the
respective Department on request any factual data not otherwise
privileged as a matter of law in their possession in respect to
individuals committed to the respective Department.
