2012 National Network of Fusion Centers Final Report


The 2012 National Network of Fusion Centers Final Report summarizes and characterizes the overall capabilities and performance of the National Network. The 2012 Final Report does not report fusion center-specific data; instead, it uses aggregated data from the 2012 Assessment to describe the capability and performance achievements of the National Network. It is structured by COCs and ECs, with additional sections dedicated to cross-cutting capabilities and the Maturity Model. Each of these sections includes:

  • Significant findings since the 2011 Assessment, including supporting analysis, year-to-year comparisons, and data tables listing attribute achievement.
  • Summary of significant statistics, with graphics indicating trends.
  • Recommendations for both fusion centers and federal agencies to support continued capability improvements and sustainability.

The 2012 Final Report also addresses the initial performance measures adopted in 2012 and discusses next steps in applying an outcome-based methodology to demonstrate the impact of the National Network. An analysis of the effectiveness of federal support provided to fusion centers is also included based on data collected through the 2012 Assessment. Lastly, an overview of the FY 2012 Homeland Security Grant Program is provided, including compliance with fusion center-related requirements.
