Government Accountability Office, Department of Homeland Security: Assessments of Selected Complex Acquisitions (GAO-10-588SP) (July 30, 2010) (full-text).

Overview[]

The GAO reported that DHS had made progress in its efforts to effectively and efficiently acquire large-scale IT programs — for instance by providing more guidance on acquisitions at the departmental and component levels — but that its implementation of acquisition management policies and practices was inconsistent. Moreover, the GAO reported that many major IT system acquisitions were not receiving effective oversight.
