Summary
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has called for using risk-informed approaches to help prioritize its investments, develop plans, and allocate resources in a way that balances security and commerce. Within DHS, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is responsible for making risk informed investments to secure the transportation system. GAO evaluated to what extent TSA (1) implemented a risk management approach to inform the allocation of resources across the transportation sector and (2) followed internal control standards in its efforts to implement and use a risk management approach to inform resource allocation. In conducting this work, GAO analyzed, among other things, DHS and TSA documents, such as TSA's risk management methodology, and compared them to DHS's risk management framework for infrastructure protection, compared TSA's management activities to criteria in federal internal control standards, and interviewed DHS and TSA officials. To promote effective use of risk management, GAO is recommending, among other things, that the Assistant Secretary, TSA, work with DHS to validate its risk management approach, conduct comprehensive risk assessments, and establish related internal controls
