David Haun of Grant Thornton presented the key findings of our third report. The Project’s first two reports established a baseline assessment of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) core management and mission challenges and the significant progress made since its establishment. This year’s report focus is on The Business of Homeland Security and presents insights and perspectives from industry executives, former government officials, and current government officials who are or who have served in the Homeland Security Enterprise.

We convened seven focus group discussions, held numerous one-on-one interviews, and administered an online survey to current and former government officials and industry executives associated with the homeland security mission. In total, more than 200 individuals participated, including representatives from companies that support the HSE; current and former senior government officials from DHS headquarters and its components; and other government agencies including the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Office of Management and Budget, and the Intelligence Community.
