Most of the deficiencies identified by the independent public accounting firm KPMG, LLP were related to access controls for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service’s (USCIS) core financial and feeder systems. The deficiencies collectively limited USCIS’ ability to ensure that critical financial and operational data were maintained in such a manner as to ensure their confidentiality, integrity, and availability. We recommend that USCIS, in coordination with the Department of Homeland Security’s CIO and ACFO, make improvements to USCIS’ financial management systems and associated information technology security program.
