  • DHS/USCG/PIA-032 SURVEYOR Integrated Data Environment (IDE)

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), United States Coast Guard (USCG) is developing an Integrated Data Environment (IDE) system called SURVEYOR. This system will be the USCG’s enterprise cloud-based data architecture to consolidate USCG data source silos, and enable the use of data as an enterprise strategic asset for data-informed execution of USCG business and mission operations.

  • DHS/ICE/PIA-062 Alternatives to Detention (ATD) Program

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) oversees and manages Alternatives to Detention (ATD) programs, including the Young Adult Case Management Program (YACMP) and the primary Alternatives to Detention program, the Intensive Supervision Appearance Program (ISAP) (hereinafter collectively referred to as “ICE ATD programs”). ICE ATD programs consist of two parts: the oversight of case management support services and compliance with ICE immigration reporting requirements set forth by ICE. ICE ATD programs allow eligible noncitizens age eighteen (18) and older in immigration proceedings who are not detained in an immigration facility to remain in their selected community pending the outcome of their immigration case. The Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations has sole and complete oversight over both ICE ATD programs, specifically, the assignment and supervision of case management services offered under these programs, along with supervising electronic monitoring and/or reporting requirements. The combination of Enforcement and Removal Operations supervision of case management services and use of electronic monitoring or other monitoring and reporting requirements ensures compliance with immigration requirements and increases the rate of court appearances. In accordance with ICE’s legal authorities and mission, Enforcement and Removal Operations personnel enforce supervision and reporting requirements upon all ATD participants, including those whose case management services are overseen and managed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Office Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) through the Case Management Pilot Program (CMPP). This Privacy Impact Assessment describes how ICE ATD programs operate in a manner that includes privacy and civil liberties safeguards in accordance with law, regulation, and policy.
