Report: DHS Eyes Single Data Collection Portal for Agencies

The Department of Homeland Security has launched an effort to develop a single portal for data collection across 47 different agencies that handle goods coming into U.S., Federal News Radio reported Friday.

The agencies participated in conference calls, workshops and agile software development to automate and consolidate more than 200 paper forms, the report said.

Brenda Smith, executive assistant commissioner for trade at Customs and Border Protection, told the Federal Drive radio show that the program involved support from private sector partners.

Smith advised agencies that work with industry to conduct early and frequent communications as well as agree on a solution that works for both parties.
