DHS/CBP/PIA-062 Trusted Worker Program System (TWP)


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for vetting and monitoring the eligibility of workers applying for access to sensitive CBP-controlled areas or positions. CBP uses the Trusted Worker Program System (TWP), which is a subsystem of the e-Business cloud and is hosted on the CBP Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud East (CACE), to facilitate enrollment and vetting of applicants for eBadge, Bonded Worker, and Broker’s License. In 2019, CBP migrated the data and vetting of trusted workers from the Global Enrollment System (GES) Trusted Worker (TW) to TWP. CBP has developed this overarching Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to: (1) document the creation of a new privacy sensitive system, TWP, (2) and provide notice of a web-service interface data exchange mechanism between CBP and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Transportation Vetting System (TVS) for the eBadge program.
