The Executive Secretariat of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) operates the Enterprise Correspondence Tracking (ECT) system. The ECT is a correspondence workflow management system that assists DHS in responding to inquiries from the public, other government agencies, and the private sector. Tens of thousands of pieces of correspondence ranging from official rulings, policy statements, testimony, or even thank you letters are processed annually by DHS. The Executive Secretariat conducted this privacy impact assessment because the ECT collects and uses personally identifiable information (PII).
