Data Management Improvement Act (DMIA) Task Force: Second Annual Report to Congress [open pdf - 9MB]
"The DMIA Task Force, chaired by the Attorney General's designee and by the Secretary of DHS' designee later in 2003, is comprised of 17 representatives from six federal agencies, two state and local government groups, and nine private industry trade and travel organizations (see Appendix A, Task Force Components). Members of the Task Force were chosen to represent those agencies and organizations with the expertise necessary to find solutions to ensure the continued free flow of goods and people across our borders while addressing increased security concerns. The Task Force is required to report to Congress on its findings, conclusions, and recommendations in accordance with statutory mandates of the DMIA 2000. After being chartered, the DMIA Task Force officially began work with the first meeting on February 20, 2002. The first Task Force report to Congress in December 2002 focused primarily on recommendations for an electronic entry/exit system, currently known as the United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) Program."
