More specifically, this committee addresses DHS S&T’s five goals, as follows: (1) “Rapidly develop and deliver knowledge, analyses, and innovative solutions that advance themission of the Department.” In this area, committee members will help provide solutions that are integrated into operations by assessing our processes and helping to strengthen program management; (2) “Leverage technical expertise to assist DHS components’ efforts to establish operational requirements, and select and acquire needed technologies.” In this area, committee members will help strengthen DHS acquisition process by focusing on a systems engineering approach: (3) “Strengthen the Homeland Security Enterprise and First Responders’ capabilities to protect the homeland and respond to disasters.” Several of the committee members were selected specifically for their knowledge of first responder needs and to help ensure that committee recommendations take those needs into account; (4) “Conduct, catalyze, and survey scientific discoveries and inventions relevant to existing and emerging homeland security challenges.” In this area, committee members will help ensure constructive use of other federal facilities and of resources within academia through their own networks and by specifically addressing the need to leverage other’s technology; (5) “Foster a culture of innovation and learning, in S&T and across DHS, that addresses challenges with scientific, analytic, and technical rigor.” In this area, the committee will help increase awareness of cutting-edge research and developments by virtue of its role as expert external advisors, selected specifically for their knowledge in these areas. bd03711e-29c2-4ffb-bed6-f5e2ea7907de Recommandations Not Available 0cd8d3a3-0945-4ce1-a725-00022b1ae58d Make, Accept, Implement 245657d5-b9d1-4488-8196-975e723ac94d f70713d2-d199-4b4f-8e8d-f843f858513f Recommendations Made Number Homeland Security Science and Technology Advisory Committee Department of Homeland Security Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 48 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 6776f5e7-31ed-411e-9644-6e8a38616da3 Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage Homeland Security Science and Technology Advisory Committee Department of Homeland Security For a variety of its own reasons not applicable to the Committee, the agency may implement all/most of the recommendations, but few times recommendations are not implemented. n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The commitee did not meet in FY-11 pending renewal of the charter and appointment of members. 50 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 1edf40c3-bcb4-4ca6-80c4-f2d7bfe896c6 Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage Homeland Security Science and Technology Advisory Committee Department of Homeland Security There are sometimes a few proposals which were not funded in their entirety, those few being scaled back from their original level of requested funding (allowable under the program). n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 45 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2013-07-09 http://explore.data.gov/resource/datasets/c5i3-bb9j Gannon (J.)
