DHS/USCIS/PIA-082 Quality Assurance Database (QADB)


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) oversees lawful immigration to the United States. USCIS’ mission is to preserve the integrity of the legal immigration system by efficiently and fairly adjudicating immigration requests. USCIS operates the Quality Assurance (QA) Program to evaluate the application of immigration laws, regulations, and policies of previously adjudicated immigration requests. USCIS operates a QA Program to systematically review immigration request decisions using information originally collected during the adjudication process to ensure the consistent processing of immigration requests and to inform USCIS leadership on relevant trends. USCIS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to discuss the Quality Assurance Database (QADB) used to support the QA Program and to assess the personally identifiable information (PII) used to perform quality assurance reviews.
