Privacy Impact Assessment for the USCIS Electronic Immigration System (USCIS ELIS) [open pdf - 290KB]
From the Abstract: "The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) operates the USCIS Electronic Immigration System (USCIS ELIS). USCIS ELIS is an electronic case management system that allows USCIS to process certain immigration benefit requests. USCIS conducted this PIA to evaluate the privacy impacts of converting legacy, paper-based processes to an electronic system. This PIA replaces all previously-issued USCIS ELIS PIAs, which are: DHS/USCIS/PIA-039 'Transformation', DHS/USCIS/PIA-041 'ELIS-1 Temporary Accounts and Draft Benefit Requests', DHS/USCIS/PIA-042 'ELIS-2 Account and Case Management', DHS/USCIS/PIA-043 'ELIS-3 Automated Background Functions', and DHS-USCIS-PIA-056 'USCIS ELIS: Form I-90'. As USCIS ELIS expands to additional immigration benefit types, USCIS will update the Appendix to this PIA."
