DHS/S&T/PIA-020 Research Projects Involving Volunteers

An integral part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) mission is to conduct research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) on technologies or topics related to improving homeland security and combating terrorism. Some S&T RDT&E activities use volunteers to test, evaluate, provide feedback, or otherwise collect data on certain research topics, technologies, equipment, and capabilities related to S&T’s mission.  Volunteer RDT&E activities require the collection of a range of information from volunteers including work experience, biographic data and images.  RDT&E activities will vary in the types and breadth of data elements and information collected from volunteers.  S&T is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to establish protections for all volunteer S&T RTD&E activities.  Volunteer RDT&E activities that are covered by the PIA are listed in the appendix, updated periodically. November 2010
