83.1 Liaison with Other Government Agencies and other entities.
As the former Immigration and Naturalization Service transitions into the various immigration-related Department of Homeland Security (DHS) components (Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services) it is extremely important that all units of the former INS maintain effective liaison with each other.
It is equally important that liaison be maintained with other governmental agencies, with foreign consulates and other entities, with non-governmental organizations, and with private organizations having dealings with the immigration-related components of DHS.
Further guidance on liaison issues will be provided as the structures and responsibilities of the immigration-related DHS components become more defined.
