ABSTRACT

S&T Reforms: Integrated Product Teams and Technical Assessments (Fiscal Year 2015 Report to Congress)   [open pdf - 393KB]

"DHS requires a mechanism for capturing and understanding the research and development (R&D) that occurs across the Department. Additionally, DHS faces the challenge of how R&D is coordinated to reflect the Department's priorities. As part of the Unity of Effort initiative and to address the above concerns, DHS is establishing integrated product teams (IPT) to assist the Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) with requirements gathering, validation, and aligning of budgetary resources. S&T will also play a critical role in helping DHS-wide major acquisition programs by conducting independent technical assessments of acquisitions to ensure that DHS acquisitions meet the capability gap that they were designed to fulfill. S&T currently is reviewing and updating the applicable DHS directives to reflect the changes outlined in this report."
