Report to Our Citizens: Fiscal Year 2017, Summary of Performance and Financial Information   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "During Fiscal Year (FY) 2017, in addition to meeting our critical mission to secure our Nation, DHS was on the forefront of the national emergency response to natural disasters affecting more than 25 million people--including multiple hurricanes and wildfires. This resulted in unparalleled collaboration across the Department, other federal agencies, and our state and local government partners. [...] DHS has a robust set of strategic performance measures that gauge and communicate the value we deliver to our stakeholders and the American public. A review of the FY 2017 performance results demonstrate ongoing progress for securing the aviation sector, the border, and federal civilian networks. Also reflected in our results are our efforts to secure key leaders and critical infrastructure, continuing to enhance our immigration system, and our ability to respond to, and recover from, disasters. This is DHS's fifth year for a clean financial statement audit opinion. DHS's Net Cost of Operations for FY 2017 was $66.4 billion as compared to $55.1 billion in fiscal year 2016-- with the most significant increases resulting from the disaster response by our Component, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Whether sustaining a clean opinion on our financial statements or improving internal controls, the value of transparent and accurate financial reporting cannot be stressed enough."
