DHS to survey 5,000 government agencies on interoperable communications

The DHS office of emergency communications is planning to conduct a “stakeholder survey” among approximately 5,000 federal, state, local and tribal government agencies to gather feedback about that office’s effectiveness and to gather input on the challenges confronting interoperable emergency communications nationwide.

The survey is part of the mission of the office of emergency communications, which was established under the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to support the continued advancement of communications capabilities by emergency responders across the country.

A Federal Register notice published by the department’s National Protection and Programs Directorate estimated that it would take each responding governmental agency, on average, about 15 minutes to complete the study. The effort will cost DHS more than $30,000, says the notice.

Members of the public can comment until October 19 on this information-gathering request, which DHS has sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Further information is available from Richard Reed, of DHS, at 202-343-1666 or [email protected].
