Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 requires that Federal agencies implement a government-wide standard for secure, reliable identification for their employees and contractors to access facilities and systems. Our objective was to assess DHS’ progress in implementing and managing the HSPD-12 program since our prior audits in 2007 and 2010. The Department of Homeland Security has not made much progress in implementing and managing requirements of the HSPD-12 program department-wide. Many of the same issues we previously reported in 2007 and 2010 pose challenges today.Report NumberOIG-18-51Issue DateDocument FileOversight AreaKeywordsFiscal Year2018
- Executive Summary
We determined that DHS had only approved implementation plans for 4 of 23 strategic objectives of the Enterprise Data Strategy, and planned to finalize the remaining plans in late FY 2017. While we found that DHS had taken some effective actions to coordinate component investments in data sharing and management, component officials identified other ways that DHS could improve by coordinating Enterprise-wide tools and data integration efforts. We recommended that DHS take actions to finalize implementation plans for the remaining 19 strategic objectives by the end of FY 2017, and work with components to identify and provide the training for Enterprise-wide data analysis and management tools. We made two recommendations and Intelligence and Analysis and the Office of the Chief Information Officer concurred with both of our recommendations.Report NumberOIG-17-101Issue DateDocument FileDHS AgencyOversight AreaFiscal Year2017
