This report was statutorily mandated but I guess rather than viewing it as an opportunity to review the premises of the departments policies and ops for the first 7 years and modify those if necessary, the DHS QHSR is really just pablum justifying past courses of action. A lot has changed in seven years since March 1, 2003 when the Department opened its doors and too bad that we now have final and conclusive proof from this document that DHS is not what the public administration types call a “Learning organization.” A wasted effort and even more important a wasted opportunity. At least the document could have disclosed what contractor or contractors put the report together and who actually reviewed and decided on its contents. How much did DHS spend on this effort?
