Coast Guard: Deployable Operations Group Achieving Organizational Benefits, but Challenges Remain, Briefing for the Subcommittee on Homeland Security, Committees on Appropriations, U.S. Senate and House of Representatives   [open pdf - 945KB]

From the Document: "The U.S. Coast Guard's Deployable Operations Group (DOG) was established in July 2007 to align all of the service's deployable specialized forces under a single unified command. Creation of the DOG was an integral part of the Coast Guard's modernization program--a major, ongoing effort to update its command structure, support systems, and business practices. According to Coast Guard officials, the DOG is intended to enhance operational effectiveness and interagency coordination in responding to a wide range of national emergencies and events, such as terrorist threats or natural disasters." The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is "reporting on the extent to which the Deployable Operations Group achieved its intended benefits and the challenges it faces as it continues to mature. For a summary of the results of [GAO's] work, see enclosure 1, slides 9-10. Based on the results of our review, we are not making any recommendations for congressional consideration or agency action."
