GAO releases report on long-range emerging threats as identified by federal agencies

from IAEM

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released a report entitled “Long-Range Emerging Threats Facing the United State as Identified by Federal Agencies.” A House committee report accompanying a bill for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018 included a provision for GAO to identify emerging threats of high national security consequence. To identify long-range emerging threats, GAO administered a questionnaire to 45 government organizations that assess emerging threats and had a 78 percent response rate. GAO conducted a content analysis of the responses to identify specific threats and develop broad threat categories. To supplement the data from the questionnaire, GAO reviewed national security strategies and agency documents and interviewed key agency officials. This report is a public version of a classified report that GAO issued on Sept. 28, 2018. The report, summary, highlights and infographics are posted online. more
