DHS-USCIS-PIA-044 Validation Instrument for Business Enterprises

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Service Center Operations Directorate (SCOPS) developed the Validation Instrument for Business Enterprises (VIBE) system.  SCOPS uses VIBE to (1) validate the business operations and financial viability of organizations seeking to employ foreign workers; and (2) identify benefit fraud based on the Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate (FDNS) findings and other government agencies’ referrals. USCIS conducted this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because VIBE collects, uses, and disseminates Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
