GAO publishes report on DHS progress in strengthening management functions

from IAEM

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Feb. 26 released GAO-15-388T, “Department of Homeland Security: Progress Made, but More Work Remains.” The report can be viewed online or downloaded here. GAO regularly reports on government operations identified as high risk because of their increased vulnerability to fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement, or the need for transformation to address economy, efficiency, or effectiveness challenges. In 2003, GAO designated implementing and transforming DHS as high risk because DHS had to transform 22 agencies into one department, and failure to address associated risks could have serious consequences for U.S. national and economic security. While challenges remain for DHS across its range of missions, the report details that the agency has made considerable progress, has implemented more than 69% of GAO recommendations, and has actions underway to implement others. more
