SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and as part of its ongoing integration and management efforts, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is consolidating one U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services (USCIS) system of records notice titled, Justice/INS-024 FD-258 Fingerprint Tracking System (65 FR 46741 July 31, 2000) into the existing U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services system of records notice titled DHS-USCIS-002 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Background Check Service, (72 FR 31082 January 5, 2007).

Justice/INS-024 FD-258 Fingerprint Tracking System was originally established to determine the status of pending fingerprint submissions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the results of the FBI check, and to account for and control the receipt and processing of fingerprints submitted to the FBI for a criminal background check.

Eliminating this system of records notice will have no adverse impact on individuals, but will promote the overall streamlining and management of DHS Privacy Act record systems.
