September 2, 2015 —

As part of our DHS Unity of Effort initiative, I have directed an important new measure to unify the Department’s research and development (R&D) activities. Specifically, I have directed the establishment of Integrated Product Teams (IPTs). These IPTs will be charged with coordinating and prioritizing research and development across the Department in a number of areas, such as aviation security, biological threats, counterterrorism, border security, cybersecurity and disaster resilience.
