8. Provide a brief summary and justification for this investment, including a brief description of how this closes in part or in whole an identified agency
performance gap.

ADIS is an electronic system that collects information about noncitizens who travel to the US. This includes arrival and departure border
crossings, and immigration status updates for each traveler. ADIS receives information from multiple systems, some of which are from
government organizations external to US-VISIT, and matches events to a unique person to create a complete record of events during
their US visits.

ADIS matches departures with arrivals to ascertain compliance, stores travel and status adjustment records, and provides a range of ad
hoc queries and reporting capabilities. ADIS incorporates additional data elements and transactions associated with all US-VISIT
increments and other immigration systems to maintain complete traveler histories. ADIS maintains travel histories on over 200 million
alien travelers. The data collected includes key biographic and biometric identifiers, and processing information used to provide
information to law enforcement and other stakeholders. ADIS receives 100% of all system confirmed arrivals and all air/sea arrival and
departure manifests along with I-94/I-94W departure records, which is about twice the number of US-VISIT processed in-scope travelers.

ADIS is a steady state investment that effectively meets the business requirements to maintain a complete traveler’s identity and travel
history. ADIS was developed in response to the events of Sept 11, 2001 and was deployed in Oct 2002. The system continues to receive
and process data and delivers accurate and complete reports to users. Historical trends indicate a gradual increase in database storage
requirements and additional data feeds as new DHS or external agency immigration systems come on line. US VISIT conducts algorithm
efficiency analysis on a regular basis. Refinements are made as necessary.

The US VISIT Data Integrity Group in Identity Services reviews and analyzes all data from ADIS and the biometric system, IDENT, to
develop in-country leads deemed credible. US-VISIT then provides these leads to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for
further investigation. ADIS also provides data to law enforcement and counter-terrorism intelligence authorities in support of their

1. Provide the total estimated life-cycle cost for this investment by completing the following table. All amounts represent budget authority in millions, and are
rounded to three decimal places. Federal personnel costs should be included only in the row designated “Government FTE Cost,” and should be excluded
from the amounts shown for “Planning,” “Full Acquisition,” and “Operation/Maintenance.” The total estimated annual cost of the investment is the sum of
costs for “Planning,” “Full Acquisition,” and “Operation/Maintenance.” For Federal buildings and facilities, life-cycle costs should include long term energy,
environmental, decommissioning, and/or restoration costs. The costs associated with the entire life-cycle of the investment should be included in this report.

2. Will this project require the agency to hire additional FTE’s?

2.a. If "yes," how many and in what year?

3. If the summary of spending has changed from the FY2009 President’s budget request, briefly explain those changes.

ADIS O&M cost history: FY02 through FY08 = $18.887 million, not including the Data Center costs, which were covered by the Accenture
contract, Materials Task 20 totaling $13.085 M. Note that FY13 O&M costs reported in this Exhibit are comparatively higher ($24M) due
to another $9M planned hardware refresh in that year.

US-VISIT has been operating ADIS since FY03. ADIS was deployed in FY02 as a system to track the entries and exits of visa waiver
country participants. The critical ADIS core capability is the matching of non-immigrant arrival, departure and immigration status update
records. In FY08, ADIS operations and maintenance concentrated on improving the matching of arrivals to departures through the
implementation of Release 3.0, which cleaned up multiple overstay records, and through improvements in the matching algorithm. ADIS
system availability averaged 99.4%, exceeding a 97% target.

In FY08, the ADIS reconciliation code release systematically improved the business logic to reduce falsely identified overstay records by
28 percent. Although match rates improved from 91.3 percent in FY07 to 92.2 percent in FY08, the highest level of record matching
accuracy possible is required to meet mission requirements, especially the identification of overstays.

In FY09 the Dept of Energy Lawrence Livermore National Labs (LLNL) will assist US-VISIT in comparing current record matching
performance to the performance of other types of record matching algorithms. The first report will be delivered in the first quarter FY09.
A 15% annual increase in users experienced in FY07 and FY08 is expected to occur again in FY09. FY08 system availability was 99.4%
and is expected to maintain an FY09 rate of 97% or better.

An ADIS Assessment is being conducted in the first quarter of FY09 to identify the challenges facing ADIS. The report will provide an
independent technical assessment of the production system architecture and recommendations for system revisions.

Additional upgrades planned include a database upgrade from Oracle 9i to Oracle 10g and continued biographic matching improvements
via both refined matching algorithms and incorporation of suggestions from the LLNL.
