Government Accountability Office, Face Recognition Technology: FBI Should Better Ensure Privacy and Accuracy (GAO-16-267) (May 16, 2016) (reissued on August 3, 2016) (full-text).

Overview Edit

The GAO was asked to review the FBI's use of face recognition technology. This report examines: 1) the FBI's face recognition capabilities; and the extents to which 2) the FBI's use of face recognition adhered to privacy laws and policies and 3) the FBI assessed the accuracy of these capabilities.

The GAO made six recommendations, including, that the U.S. Attorney General determine why PIAs and a SORN were not published as required and implement corrective actions, and for the FBI director to conduct tests to verify that NGI-IPS is accurate and take steps to determine whether systems used by external partners are sufficiently accurate for FBI's use.
