The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) uses the Enterprise Citizenship and Immigration Services Centralized Operational Repository (eCISCOR) to streamline access to relevant data necessary to administer the Immigration and Nationality Act and to accomplish mission support-related tasks. Historically, eCISCOR has been used as a data repository that primarily consolidates data collected during the adjudication of applications and petitions for immigration benefits. In 2015, USCIS issued DHS/USCIS/PIA-023(a) eCISCOR to update eCISCOR’s functionalities and add appendices to include all source and interconnected systems. USCIS is updating and reissuing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to clarify the description of eCISCOR, account for new categories of information within eCISCOR, and add new source and interconnected systems in the applicable Appendices. Upon publication of this PIA, DHS/USCIS/PIA-023(a) eCISCOR PIA will be retired and replaced. July 2018
