The Directorate of Science and Technology is the primary organization for R&D in the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS). With an appropriated budget of $932.6 million in FY2009, it conducts R&D in several laboratories of its own and funds R&D conducted by other government agencies, the Dept. of Energy (DOE) national laboratories, industry, and universities. The directorate consists primarily of six divisions: Chemical and Biological; Explosives; Command, Control, and Interoperability; Borders and Maritime Security; Infrastructure and Geophysical; and Human Factors. Additional offices have responsibilities, such as laboratory facilities and university programs, that cut across the divisions. The directorate is headed by the Under Sec. for Science and Technology. In the past, some Members of Congress and other observers have been highly critical of the directorateís performance. Although management changes have somewhat muted this criticism in recent years, fundamental issues remain, which this paper discusses. Congressional policymakers are widely expected to consider reauthorization legislation for DHS during the 111th Congress. Such legislation would likely include provisions that would affect the Science and Technology Directorate. Figures.
