ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 5983: Homeland Security Network Defense and Accountability Act of 2008   [open pdf - 14KB]

"H.R. 5983 would direct the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to improve the security of its computer networks and increase oversight of contractors that provide network services to the department. Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 5983 would cost $163 million over the 2009-2013 period for DHS to hire additional staff to carry out the bill's provisions. Enacting H.R. 5983 would not affect direct spending or revenues. H.R. 5983 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments."
