DHS/USCIS/PIA-068 Refugee Case Processing and Security Vetting


The Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations (RAIO), Refugee Affairs Division of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) adjudicates applications for refugee resettlement. The Refugee Affairs Division historically used the following information systems in support of its adjudication efforts: Department of State’s (DOS) Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System (WRAPS); designated Refugee Affairs Division sites on the Enterprise Collaboration Network (ECN); Refugee Affairs Division Case Manager (RAD Case Manager); Case and Activity Management for International Operations (CAMINO); and R-TRACK. The Refugee Affairs Division is seeking to retire the aforementioned USCIS systems and consolidate the functionalities into RAD Global, operating in a cloud-based environment, to serve as the primary case management system for the administration of refugee cases. USCIS is publishing an update to this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to describe the launch of RAD Global to support refugee case processing. April 2020
