  4. DHS/USCIS/PIA-072 CAP Tracker



The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) oversees lawful immigration and non-immigration benefits. For all incoming applications, petitions, and forms, USCIS reviews the completeness and acceptability of each one and rejects those failing to meet the stated criteria. USCIS developed the CAP Tracker system to track and maintain an inventory of all rejected filings. CAP Tracker is also used to generate standardized rejection notices sent to applicants or petitioners and, if applicable, legal representatives. USCIS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to evaluate the privacy risks and mitigations associated with CAP Tracker’s collection, use, and maintenance of personally identifiable information (PII).
