ABSTRACT

Agroterrorism Prevention, Detection, and Response   [open pdf - 6MB]

"Our objective was to evaluate if USDA's [U.S. Department of Agriculture] OHSEC [Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Coordination] had developed and communicated effective plans and procedures to prevent, detect, and respond to agroterrorism threats. OIG [Office of Inspector General] reviewed applicable legislation, directives, and regulations; interviewed OHSEC officials; and evaluated existing OHSEC publications related to agroterrorism preparedness activities from October 2010 to November 2016. [...] OHSEC needs to develop and implement written processes to effectively oversee USDA's agroterrorism prevention, detection, and response activities; develop and implement a comprehensive process to track USDA's compliance with HSPD-9 [Homeland Security Presidential Directive-9]; and improve the process used to create the SSP [Sector-Specific Plan]."
