Capability Gap Survey and Assessment Process   [open pdf - 179KB]

"The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Operations Coordination and Planning, Plans Division uses a survey and assessment process to help inform capability-based planning at DHS. The process integrates self-assessments and strategic-level policy guidance via a survey tool to assess capability and capacity shortfalls more efficiently and accurately than otherwise possible. The Plans Division is periodically tasked to develop assessments of DHS operational capabilities. However, a traditional DHS-wide inventory audit might lack the accuracy, timeliness, and support necessary to successfully assess all capabilities useful for homeland security missions, especially complex ones like "preventing terrorism" that are hard to count The Plans Division is periodically tasked to develop assessments of DHS operational capabilities.
