Studies Reveal System Flaws

- The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) American Shield Initiative (ASI)—a program of sensors, cameras, and databases that monitor U.S. land borders—lacks “key management capabilities” and has failed to define “key acquisition management processes,” such as those for tracking and overseeing contractors, says a report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The auditors note that DHS has not fully staffed the ASI program office and has only defined roles and responsibilities for 3 of 47 positions.
