DHS Release Report on Asset Database

Wednesday, July 12, 2006
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Homeland Security released its report on the National Asset Database. The database was intended to identify and prioritize the nation’s critical infrastructure and key resources to allow for use of limited forces to provide protection. As of January 2006, the database contained 77,069 assets. A preliminary review reveals that many of the assets in the database are not critical to the security of the United States and that the data collection process is in need of significant modification. The report notes that even DHS questions that usefulness of the database and, for the Port Security Grant Program, utilized data from the Coast Guard, rather than the National Asset Database.
