DHS/S&T/PIA-042 DHS Federally Funded Research and Development Centers


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsors federally funded research and development centers (FFRDC). The DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) FFRDC Program Management Office (PMO) oversees and manages access to these specialized services in systems engineering, integration, studies, and analysis. The FFRDC services can be accessed by DHS components; external federal, state, and local government; non-governmental organizations and institutions; universities and affiliated research centers; and other public sector and private sector groups, through the PMO. S&T conducted this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to address the Department’s FFRDC program as well as two specific FFRDCs (i.e., Homeland Security Operational Analysis Center [HSOAC] and Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute [HSSEDI]) and the privacy risks associated with the collection, use, maintenance, and dissemination of personally identifiable information (PII), privacy sensitive projects and activities, and use of DHS-accredited information systems.
