DHS/USCIS/PIA-007(b) Domestically Filed Intercountry Adoptions Applications and Petitions

The Adoption Case Management System (ACMS) module under the National Processing Workflow Repository (NPWR) serves as the case-management system for the domestically-filed intercountry adoption process. ACMS is used by the USCIS National Benefits Center (NBC) to facilitate the effective and efficient processing of domestic intercountry adoption-related applications and petitions.1 ACMS replaces USCIS’s existing intercountry adoption case management system, the Secure Information Management Service. USCIS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because ACMS collects, uses, and disseminates personally identifiable information (PII). This PIA replaces DHS/USCIS/PIA-007 USCIS Secure Information Management Service (SIMS) Pilot and Inter-country Adoptions and DHS/USCIS/PIA-007(a) Secure Information Management Service (SIMS) Pilot with Inter-Country Adoptions Update.
