The Department of Homeland Security does not plan to apply the operating policies of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) Part 23, Criminal Intelligence Systems Operating Policies, to the Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology System (HART) because it has determined, and we concur, that HART is not a criminal intelligence system, as defined by 28 C.F.R. Part 23. Instead, HART is an identity service provider and data repository that will match, store, and share personally identifiable information. Therefore, HART must operate in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 and the EGovernment Act of 2002.
