From the Document: "The DHS DIB [Data Integrity Board] is very involved with all aspects of the Computer Matching Agreement (CMA) and Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) approval process. The DIB analyzes key elements of the CBA to provide more assurance that the DHS CMAs are a cost effective use of resources. The DHS DIB requires a favorable cost-benefit ratio for all approved matches. The DHS DIB identifies and estimate the avoidance of future improper payments and identifies an estimate of the recovery of improper payments and debts. Benefits analyzed include the collection of money owed to an agency, reduction in paperwork, and personnel-hours saved via process automation. Costs analyzed include personnel costs (such as salary or fringe benefits and additional staff time dedicated to the matching program), and computer costs (such as the cost of maintaining and using computers for the matching program)."
