Office of Biometric Identity Management: Multi-Year Investment and Management Plan (Fiscal Year 2015 Report to Congress)   [open pdf - 2MB]

"OBIM [Office of Biometric Identity Management], a subcomponent of NPPD [National Protection and Programs Directorate], is the lead entity within DHS responsible for biometric identity management services to ensure that the homeland is safe, secure, and resilient. [...] OBIM provides biometric identity services through the Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT), which stores biometric identities and conducts recurrent matching against derogatory information. [...] By matching, storing, sharing, and analyzing biometric data, OBIM provides decision makers on the front lines of homeland security with rapid, accurate, and secure identity services. [...] In this Multi-Year Investment and Management Plan (MYIP), OBIM strategically frames customer- and mission-focused priorities within available resources to sustain and provide biometric identity services within current capabilities (interventions to correct emergent system performance issues). OBIM also strategically frames these priorities within programmed activities to develop necessary interim system improvements to meet growing stakeholder and customer demand for current services and agreements. [...] To meet the requirements of Senate Report 113-198, as well as the 'FY 2013 DHS Appropriations Act' (P.L. 113-6), OBIM addresses planned accomplishments in terms of four major components of the OBIM budget: [1] Salaries and Expenses; [2] System Operations and Maintenance for IDENT and for Corporate Systems; [3] Identity and Screening Services; [4] Planned development of a replacement biometric system based on rearchitecting the current IDENT system to meet current and future requirements."
