DHS/USSS/PIA-012 Electronic Name Check System

The United States Secret Service (USSS) uses the Electronic Name Check System (eCheck) to assist with conducting and managing the results of background checks on prospective attendees requesting access to attend a National Special Security Event (NSSE). The system allows trained USSS personnel to electronically submit a request for information on a prospective NSSE attendee and receive results of his or her criminal status and history prior to granting access to an event. This PIA update is being completed to reflect an increase in functionality for USSS field offices when accessing the criminal status and personally identifiable information (PII) of self-identified foreign nationals. Criminal status and history information will continue to be verified and corroborated by the USSS professional agents when making a determination as to whether to grant or deny an individual access to an NSSE.
