Issues, challenges, priorities and gaps discussed by the panels and with audience participation help inform the direction of the VQiPS Program and the solutions (new technology or knowledge products) that the program leadership continues to pursue. This event also provided an opportunity to review and validate current priorities and focus areas. DHS OIC used the two-day Workshop to also find out the best way for stakeholders to digest their information (e.g., social media, newsletters, etc.) to more effectively communicate VQiPS activities. Attendees also had the benefit of hearing different lessons learned and best practices from practitioners from across the country who are facing similar issues within their agencies.
