DHS Makes Significant Strides in Management Initiatives

Since I took office a little more than a year ago, I have made improving the leadership and management of this Department a top priority.  By focusing on making long term, structural changes to the way DHS does business, we have been able to make significant progress towards this goal – including implementing my Unity of Effort initiative, establishing a Southern Border and Approaches Campaign, reforming our acquisitions process, improving cyber hygiene, and addressing key oversight recommendations. These reforms have improved our ability to serve the American people at the highest standard.   I look forward to continued progress in this area under the leadership of our new Under Secretary for Management, Russell C. Deyo, whom I am confident will bring even greater effectiveness and efficiency to how we pursue our vital homeland security missions.
