The Department of Homeland Security was formed in 2002 and is currently made up of 22 child agencies. When the Department formed those agencies had existing offices and functions which generally remained in the same locations. Now it is time to look at the locations and functions of those agencies and develop a master plan to promote consolidation and efficiency while maintaining mission capability and preparing for future functions.
To do this the Office of Chief Readiness Support embarked on a study of the 12 metropolitan areas where DHS has the most presence to determine not only what to do with facilities, but how to effectively and efficiently address shared services to include facility management, motor pool, training, logistics and environmental. The Department began the study with an initial pilot in the Boston, Massachusetts area, a second in the Seattle area and then held studies in 10 other cities with a last one currently taking place in Puerto Rico.
Come hear how this agency is approaching efficiency to use lessons learned for your organization. We’ll also address what is happening in New York City.
