DHS/USCIS/PIA-069 International Case Tracking System

The U.S. Government has entered into information sharing agreements with international partners for the exchange of information to support border security, lawful immigration, and other DHS missions. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) National Records Center (NRC) is responsible for responding to information requests from foreign partners when information sharing agreements and appropriate waivers are in place as part of the International Information Sharing (IIS) Program. To streamline the intake of secondary international information requests, USCIS NRC developed the International Case Tracking System (ICTS). USCIS is updating this PIA on February 2, 2018, to account for incoming secondary follow up requests from New Zealand. At this time, USCIS is only receiving and responding to secondary queries from New Zealand, Canada, and Australia. USCIS is conducting this privacy impact assessment (PIA) to cover the receipt, creation, tracking, and processing of cases as part of the international data sharing efforts. USCIS will update this PIA as USCIS engages with other foreign partners. February 2018
