U.S. Department of Homeland Security: Automated Biometric Identification System

As part of the US-VISIT contract, Accenture assumed operational responsibility for the legacy Automated Biometric Identification System.

Accenture has managed numerous initiatives to improve US-VISIT biometrics through IDENT, including data integration across the Department of Homeland Security and significant biometric data quality enhancements.

As of September 2006, more than 64 million visitors to the United States have been processed through US-VISIT without adversely affecting wait times, and more than 1,300 criminals or immigration violators have been intercepted as a result of the use of biometrics.
