DHS/FEMA/PIA-040(a) Deployment Tracking System


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Office of Response and Recovery (ORR), Field Operations Directorate, Workforce Management Division (WMD) coordinates personnel deployment programs under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act). The WMD Deployment and Analysis Branch operates the Deployment Tracking System (DTS) to assign and track the deployment of disaster response and recovery personnel. FEMA is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because FEMA collects, uses, maintains, retrieves, and disseminates Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in DTS to coordinate and manage the deployment of federal emergency response and recovery personnel to federally-declared emergencies and disasters. This PIA updates and supersedes the previously published Deployment Tracking System Beta Test PIA. July 2017
