DHS Financial Management Systems (FM Systems) include web-based, workflow management, and financial transaction systems that provide core financial management functions for the Department and are designated by the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) as financial management systems. DHS FM Systems are used to create and maintain records of each allocation, commitment, obligation, travel advance, and accounts receivable issued by the Department. The systems contain personally identifiable information (PII) about DHS employees, contractors/vendors, customers, and members of the public that participate in DHS programs. This privacy impact assessment (PIA) covers multiple financial management systems with similar practices and functional capabilities. This PIA covers all core CFO-designated systems listed herein and in the Appendix. DHS will publish a separate PIA for any system that differs substantially or that raises distinct privacy risks from those covered by this PIA. DHS is conducting this PIA because DHS FM Systems collect and maintain PII.
