GAO Urges DHS to Modify Development Process for Acquisition Requirements

The Government Accountability Office has recommended to the Department of Homeland Security to implement different approaches to clarify operational requirements for the acquisition programs of the department’s agencies.

GAO said Wednesday the heads of DHS agencies should finalize and promote their respective draft policies for requirements development and establish or update their independent standards for employee welfare.

The agencies are also recommended to develop component specific training for requirements development, which the Joint Requirements Council will participate in.

The council will be asked to establish training and certification standards for DHS and the agencies’ requirements development workforces to promote consistency.

GAO previously discovered in a study that DHS agencies conducted acquisition initiatives that failed to meet requirements, some of which were unclear.
