GAO Testimony re Homeland Security Design and Implementation Issues

Thursday, July 18, 2002
The General Accounting Office released testimony that it delivered before the House Select Committee on Homeland Security. The testimony, entitled Homeland Security: Critical Design and Implementation Issues considered, among other things, challenges presented by the missions of agencies to be transferred to the new Department that are unrelated to homeland security. Specifically cited were the maritime safety and drug interdiction roles of the Coast Guard and collection of commercial tariffs by the Customs Service. The major question raised in this regard was whether those missions will receive adequate funding, attention, visibility, and support when subsumed into a department that will be under tremendous pressure to succeed in its primary mission.
