Statement of William O. Jenkins, Jr., Dir., Homeland Security and Justice, GAO. A catastrophic biological event could have devastating consequences. The U.S. government has made efforts to provide early detection and warning of biological threats. The Dept. of Homeland Security劌製 (DHS) BioWatch, which aims to detect certain pathogens in the air, is one such program. DHS has been pursuing a third generation of BioWatch technology (Gen-3) to further enhance detection.

This statement discusses (1) prior biosurveillance work and related federal efforts, (2) today劌製 report on the Gen-3 acquisition, and (3) prior strategy recommendations and the White House劌製 July 2012 Nat.
