Description
 
According to the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), invasive species cause an estimated $136 billion in lost agricultural revenue annually, and since September 11, 2001, concerns have persisted about the vulnerability of agriculture to deliberate introduction of foreign pests and disease. DHS and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) manage the Agriculture Quarantine Inspection (AQI) program, which places agriculture inspectors at U.S. ports of entry to inspect imported agriculture products and intercept foreign pests. GAO reported in 2006 on management challenges in the program and made seven recommendations to improve it. This report examines the extent to which (1) DHS and USDA implemented GAOńˇ╗s recommendations; (2) data on arrivals, inspections, and interceptions are used for managing the program; and (3) the views of AQI agriculture specialists on their work environment have changed since 2006. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
