Cathleen A. Berrick (au)
Statement of Cathleen A. Berrick, Mng. Dir., Homeland Security and Justice, GAO. Since beginning operations in 2003, the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) has become the third-largest federal department, with more than 224,000 employees and an annual budget of about $60 billion. Since 2003, GAO has issued more than 1,300 reports and congressional testimonies designed to strengthen DHSäó»s program management, performance measurement efforts, and management processes, among other things. GAO has reported that overlap and fragmentation among government programs can cause potential duplication, and reducing it could save billions of tax dollars annually and help agencies provide more efficient and effective services. Moreover, in 2003, GAO designated implementing and transforming DHS as high risk because it had to transform 22 agencies into one department, and failure to address associated risks could have serious consequences. This statement addresses (1) opportunities for DHS to reduce fragmentation, overlap, and duplication in its programs; save tax dollars; and enhance revenue; and (2) opportunities for DHS to strengthen its management functions.
