The Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is in charge of the Terrorist Screening Data Base (TSDB), says that the TSDB "will provide the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC) with the flexibility to conduct advanced algorithmic searches on vast amounts of data.

"The FBI added that it had established a 'nomination process' to add individuals to the database; a review process for accepting or rejecting nominations; procedures for modifying or deleting watch list records; a data correction process; and the creation of ombudsman positions to manage misidentification of persons listed in the database."
