ABSTRACT

DHS Acquisitions: Additional Practices Could Help Components Better Develop Operational Requirements, Report to Congressional Requesters   [open pdf - 5MB]

"This report addresses the policies, organizations, and workforce that selected DHS components use to develop requirements for their acquisition programs. GAO [Government Accountability Office] selected seven DHS components with significant acquisition programs and a non-generalizable sample of programs--based on cost, component, and acquisition phase--as case studies. GAO analyzed policies and program documentation; and interviewed DHS and component officials, as well as end users of DHS programs. GAO compared components' practices to industry best practices and federal internal control standards."
