DHS/ALL/PIA-025 Accessibility Compliance Management System (ACMS)

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Accessible Systems & Technology (OAST) operates the web-based Accessibility Compliance Management System (ACMS). ACMS is used to bring together a DHS-wide single point of entry and reporting system to track all related activities under Sections 501, 503, 504, and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, to support DHS employees and members of the public with disabilities. ACMS allows all DHS components to document and report compliance and accessibility activities and to consistently track status and progress towards meeting the Section 508 compliance requirements and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) program requirements. ACMS collects, uses, maintains, and disseminates sensitive personally identifiable information (SPII) of individuals seeking reasonable accommodations. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) Update is being conducted to describe and assess OAST’s intent to upload medical documentation that substantiates an individual’s request for accommodations.
