The tasks to be performed by the researcher include: filing Freedom of Information Act requests to discover and document ongoing developments; monitoring congressional appropriations that support elements of the various national ID programs; analyzing federal grant-making processes, grants, and grant recipients that support the programs; reporting on procurement actions that do the same; keeping tabs on Federal Register notices that reveal developments in national ID programs; monitoring actions on the state level to implement the REAL ID Act; monitoring actions on the state and federal level to expand E-Verify as an immigration enforcement tool; monitoring the government-contractor trade press in which plans and proposals for national ID work are revealed; and reporting on corporate promotion and sales efforts aimed at supporting a national ID.
