The Federal Protective Service (FPS) is responsible for protecting federal employees and visitors in approx. 9,000 federal facilities owned or leased by the General Services Admin. (GSA). FPS has a budget of approx. $1 billion and maintains approx. 1,200 full-time employees and about 13,000 contract security guards that help accomplish the agency's facility protection mission. This testimony discusses challenges FPS faces in carrying out its mission with regard to: (1) risk management; (2) strategic human capital planning; (3) oversight of its contract guard program; and (4) ensuring that its fee-based funding structure is the appropriate mechanism for funding the agency. This is a print on demand report.

The Dept. of Homeland Security¿s (DHS) U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) program stores and processes biometric and biographic info. to, among other things, control and monitor the entry and exit of foreign visitors. Currently, an entry capability is operating at almost 300 U.S. ports of entry, but an exit capability is not. It has been reported that there are limitations in DHS¿s efforts to plan and execute its efforts to deliver US-VISIT exit. Recommendations were made to improve these areas. This report determined: (1) the status of DHS¿s efforts to deliver a comprehensive exit solution; and (2) to what extent DHS is applying an integrated approach to managing its comprehensive exit solution.

Advances in info. tech. make it easier than ever for the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) & other agencies to obtain & process info. about citizens & residents in many ways & for many purposes. The demands of the war on terror also drive agencies to extract as much value as possible from the info. avail. to them, adding to the potential for compromising privacy. Recognizing that securing the homeland & protecting the privacy rights of individuals are both important goals, the author performed several reviews of DHS programs, & their privacy implications over the past several years. For this hearing, the author identified & summarized issues raised in its previous reports on privacy & assessed recent governmentwide privacy guidance.

Prior to 9/11, it was possible to make a distinction between ¿domestic intell.¿ ¿ law enforcement info. collected within the U.S. ¿ and ¿foreign intell.¿ ¿ military, political, and economic intell. collected outside the country. Today, threats posed by terrorist groups are now national security threats. This report provides a conceptual model of how to frame HSINT, including geographic, structural/statutory, and holistic approaches. The report argues that there is, in effect, a Homeland Security Intell. Community. State and local leaders believe there is value to centralizing intelligence gathering and analysis in a manner that assists them in preventing and responding to local manifestations of terrorist threats to their people, infrastructure, and other assets.
