"This letter formally transmits the briefing slides we provided on November 16, 2011, in response to a mandate in the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011. This mandate required the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to (1) update its Fiscal Year 2010 expenditure plan on border security fencing, infrastructure, and technology (BSFIT) for fiscal year 2011 budget authority and (2) submit the updated plan to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees. The plan is to address 10 legislative conditions in the fiscal year 2010 DHS appropriations act and be reviewed by GAO [Government Accountability Office]. DHS submitted an updated plan to Congress on September 8, 2011. As required by the act, we reviewed the plan. To conduct this work, we analyzed the expenditure plan and documents referenced within the plan, such as strategic plans and reports, and interviewed DHS and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials to obtain clarification on material contained in the expenditure plan, including certification memoranda from the DHS Chief Procurement, Chief Information, and Chief Human Capital Officers. In summary, the expenditure plan satisfied some but not all of the legislative conditions."
