General The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Public Law (Pub. L.) 100–503), amended the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) by describing the conditions under which computer matching involving the Federal government could be performed and adding certain protections for individuals applying for, and receiving, Federal benefits. Section 7201of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101–508) further amended the Privacy Act regarding protections for such individuals. The Privacy Act, as amended, regulates the use of computer matching by Federal agencies when records in a system of records are matched with other Federal, State, or local government records. It requires Federal agencies involved in computer matching programs to: (1) Negotiate written agreements with the other agency or agencies participating in the matching programs; (2) Obtain the approval of the matching agreement by the Data Integrity Boards (DIB) of the participating Federal agencies; (3) Publish notice of the computer matching program in the Federal Register; (4) Furnish detailed reports about matching programs to Congress and OMB; (5) Notify applicants and beneficiaries that their records are subject to matching; and (6) Verify match findings before reducing, suspending, terminating, or denying an individual’s benefits or payments.

ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: This notice informs the public of the implementation of United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US–VISIT) Program exit pilot programs at two air ports of entry as required by the Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2009. The 2009 appropriations act limited the Department of Homeland Security’s funding until US–VISIT conducts certain exit pilots programs and submits a report to Congress. This notice also announces the location of the exit pilot programs and describes the process by which the exit pilot programs will be evaluated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The airport locations are Atlanta, Georgia, and Detroit, Michigan. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Helen deThomas, US–VISIT, Department of Homeland Security, 245 Murray Drive, SW., Washington, DC, 20020; (202) 298–5200 (not a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PWALKER on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Background The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) established US–VISIT in accordance with several congressional mandates requiring DHS to create an integrated, automated entry-exit system that records the arrival and departure of aliens, verifies aliens’ identities, and authenticates aliens’ travel documents through the comparison of biometric identifiers. On April 24, 2008, DHS published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish an exit program at all air VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:08 Jun 02, 2009 Jkt 217001 and sea ports of departure in the United States. See 73 FR 22056. The NPRM proposed that aliens subject to US– VISIT entry requirements would provide biometric information to commercial air and vessel carriers before departing the United States at air and sea ports of entry. The commercial air and vessel carriers would be required to collect and transmit the biometric information to DHS. The rule would have exempted, at that time, certain private and small carriers. The Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2009, Public Law 110–329, 122 Stat. 3574, 3669–70 (Sept. 30, 2008) (2009 Appropriations Act) subsequently provided: That no funding under this heading shall be obligated for implementation of a final air exit solution pursuant to the notice of proposed rulemaking (DHS–2008–0039) published on April 24, 2008, until the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives receive a report on pilot tests of the air exit solution, which shall be reviewed by the Government Accountability Office, and which shall test at least two scenarios: (a) Where the airlines collect and transmit biometric exit data as proposed in the notice of proposed rulemaking and (b) where U.S. Customs and Border Protection collects such information at the departure gates. DHS is conducting an additional pilot in which the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) collects and transmits biometric exit data at an airport security checkpoint. The air exit pilots are being conducted by CBP at the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) and by TSA at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) for a 30–45 day period and began on May 28, 2009. Pilot 1: CBP at the Departure Gate CBP officers are conducting a pilot at the departure gate. The purpose of this pilot is to evaluate the impact of collecting biometric information at or near the departure gate from aliens who are subject to US–VISIT biometric requirements departing the United States for foreign destinations. The biometric information consists of one or more electronic fingerprints captured using a mobile or portable device. The biographic information includes travel document information, such as name, date of birth, document issuance type, country, and number—all of which are contained in the document’s machinereadable zone (MRZ) of a machinereadable travel document (MRTD). CBP is following defined processes that minimize interference with the air carrier boarding process. This pilot will capture the cycle time necessary for the PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26721 additional verification and collection of this biometric data from international travelers. Pilot 2: TSA at the Security Checkpoint TSA is conducting a pilot at the security checkpoint. The purpose of this pilot is to evaluate the impact of collecting biometric information at the TSA security checkpoints from those aliens who are subject to US–VISIT biometric requirements departing the United States for foreign destinations. Those travelers with international destinations are directed to an area within the checkpoint where the biographic and biometric information is collected. The biometric information consists of one or more electronic fingerprints captured using a mobile device. The biographic information includes travel document information, such as name, date of birth, document issuance type, country, and number—all of which are contained in the document’s MRZ of the MRTD. This pilot will capture the cycle time necessary for the additional verification and collection of this biometric data from international travelers. Air Exit Pilots Evaluation The goal of the pilots is to provide data in support of an evaluation of each alternative to inform the final rule, supporting an optimal air exit solution. The pilots have the following additional objectives: • Evaluate identity verification and exit-recording solutions with existing port operations and infrastructure. • Record the exit from the United States of each alien encountered during the exit pilots who is subject to US– VISIT biometric requirements at the designated airports. • Update the individual records of each alien encountered during the exit pilots who is subject to US–VISIT biometric requirements in the Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT) and the Arrival and Departure Information System (ADIS) with departure encounter information. DHS began collecting biographic and biometric data at the two exit pilot program locations identified herein on May 28, 2009. A third exit pilot program location to test the air carrier NPRM preferred solution will be determined at a later date.1 DHS will evaluate the exit 1 To date, no commercial air carrier has offered to test the preferred solution in the proposed rule. This third air exit pilot program would biometrically and biographically verify the identity of each alien subject to US–VISIT biometric requirements departing the United States using a designated commercial air carrier at designated airport(s).
