USCIS readies forms for long-delayed online system
The Homeland Security Department has new rules for describing forms and filing procedures in official policies to prepare for its long-delayed transition to online processing of immigration applications, Nextgov reports.
Employees of DHS unit U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services will stop typing on documents traditional
numbers and titles for various benefit claims, the story explained.
To accommodate the new
computerized Transformation system that's a decade behind schedule, USCIS policies and rules will have generic phrases such as "the form designated by USCIS," the article continued. The rules become effective Nov. 28.
