DHS does not have adequate oversight of its workforce training. DHS lacks reliable training cost information and data needed to make effective and efficient management decisions. In addition, it does not have an effective governance structure for its training oversight, including clearly defined roles, responsibilities, and delegated authorities. Finally, DHS has not adequately addressed 29 different recommendations to improve training efficiencies made since 2004 by various working groups. As a result, DHS cannot ensure the most efficient use of resources.
