Statement of Randolph C. Hite, Dir., Info. Tech. Architecture and Systems Issues, GAO. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) invested more than $6 billion in 2009 on large-scale, info. tech. (IT) systems to help it achieve mission outcomes and transform departmentwide operations. For DHS to effectively leverage these systems as mission enablers and transformation tools, it needs to employ a number of institutional acquisition and IT mgt. controls and capabilities, such as using an operational and technological blueprint to guide and constrain system investments (enterprise architecture) and following institutional policies, practices, and structures for acquiring and investing in these systems. Other institutional controls and capabilities include employing rigorous and disciplined system life cycle mgt. processes and having capable acquisition and IT mgt. workforces. It is critical for the dept. to implement these controls and capabilities on each of its system acquisition programs. GAO has issued a series of reports on DHS institutional controls for acquiring and managing IT systems, and its implementation of these controls on large-scale systems. This testimony informs Congress on how far GAO has come on both of these fronts, including its implementation of GAO’s recommendations. Figures.
