Almost a decade after the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, some lawmakers are deeply troubled by what they describe as the agency's ambiguous objectives and a lack of concrete progress.
The Department of Homeland Security has completed the second phase of a long-term planning and review program. The so-called "Bottom-up Review" picks up where the ground-breaking Quadrennial Homeland Security Review left off earlier this year, and paves the way for the possibility of major changes in DHS programs to better fit the agency's mission.
Agencies across the federal government are embracing the tools of social collaboration to become more accessible to citizens. An IT industry group that includes many federal IT officials heard from three of the top government experts in the field.
For the first time since the founding of the agency, the Department of Homeland Security is getting an opportunity for some introspection and a look at whether its programs and priorities are "on mission." The Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, unlike other agency documents, was written and developed using a variation of popular web 2.0 collaboration tools.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has delivered to Congress the very first Quadrennial Homeland Security Review. The document reflects nearly a year's worth of work as DHS officials, external stakeholders and even members of the public held an unusually open examination of the programs and priorities of a mega-agency charged with safeguarding the nation. An outside group that monitors the homeland security community offers its own first-look of the QHSR.
