Maritime Security: Progress and Challenges 10 Years After the Maritime Transportation Security Act: Congressional Testimony
Stephen L. Caldwell (au)
Statement of Stephen L. Caldwell, Dir., Homeland Security and Justice, GAO. Ports, waterways, and vessels handle billions of dollars in cargo annually and an attack on this maritime transportation system could impact the global economy. Nov. 2012 marks the 10-year anniversary of the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA), which required a wide range of security improvements. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) is the lead federal dept. responsible for implementing MTSA and it relies on its component agencies, such as the Coast Guard and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), to help implement the act. The Coast Guard is responsible for U.S. maritime security interests and CBP is responsible for screening arriving vessel crew and cargo. This testimony summarizes GAOńˇ╗s work on implementation of MTSA requirements over the last decade and addresses (1) progress the federal government has made in improving maritime security and (2) key challenges that DHS and its component agencies have encountered in implementing maritime security-related programs. GAOńˇ╗s work has shown that DHS has made substantial progress in implementing various programs that, collectively, have improved maritime security. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
