DHS/USCIS/PIA-010 Person Centric Query Service


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) developed the Person Centric Query Service (PCQS) to allow users to submit a single query and view all transactions involving an immigrant or nonimmigrant across multiple DHS and external systems. PCQS returns a consolidated view of the individual’s past interactions with DHS Components and other agencies as he or she passed through the U.S. immigration system. USCIS is updating this privacy impact assessment (PIA) to document a new access agreement with the Department of Labor (DOL). April 2018
