U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Service Center Operations Directorate (SCOPS) operates the Validation Instrument for Business Enterprises (VIBE) system. VIBE is used to (1) validate the business operations and financial viability of organizations seeking to employ foreign workers; and (2) identify benefit fraud based on internal and other government agencies’ referrals. USCIS is updating this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to discuss the sharing of data with the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman (CISOMB) and the Department of Labor (DOL).
