USCIS Launches Agency-Wide Policy Review

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched a new, comprehensive effort to review all Agency policies with the engaged participation of both its workforce and the public.  To get underway, USCIS is inviting outside stakeholders to identify their highest priorities for the Policy Review through a two-week survey launched today.

“At USCIS, we are responsible for ensuring that our policies serve our mission and reflect our core values of consistency, integrity, transparency, and efficiency,” said USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas. “We have therefore initiated a careful review and consideration of those policies in collaboration with the public we serve.  The public’s views will help define our Agency’s future.”

Through a survey distributed earlier this month, USCIS has already asked its workforce to put forward priorities.  Now, USCIS’s outside stakeholders have an opportunity to offer input by participating in the same survey.  The public survey is available on from today through April 29.  USCIS will publish a summary of the results later this spring.

Throughout the Policy Review, USCIS will continue to seek feedback from its workforce and external stakeholders to ensure that the resulting policies are informed, responsive, and effective.
