ABSTRACT

Department of Homeland Security: Progress Report on Implementation of Mission and Management Functions   [open pdf - 5MB]

DHS has "generally achieved" 78 of its 171 performance expectations, "not achieved" 83 expectations, and was "not assessed" on 10 expectations. "At the time of its creation in 2003 as one of the largest federal reorganizations in the last several decades, we designated the implementation and transformation of DHS as a high-risk area due to the magnitude of the challenges it confronted in areas vital to the physical and economic well being of the nation. After 4 years into its overall integration effort, DHS has attained some level of progress in all of its mission and management areas. The rate of progress, however, among these areas varies, as shown in the table below."
