DHS/FEMA/PIA-034 Electronic Fingerprint System

FEMA’s Office of the Chief Security Officer (OSCO) initiated the Electronic Fingerprint System (EFS) as part of the security suitability, clearance, and badging process for FEMA employees, contractors, and affiliates.  FEMA conducted this Privacy Impact Assessment because EFS collects personally identifiable information and leverages the National Protection and Programs Directorate Office of Biometric Identity Management’s Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT) to conduct background investigations.  September 24, 2013.
