Knezo Specialist in Science and Technology Policy Resources, Science, and Industry Division P.L. 107-296, the Homeland Security Act, consolidated some RD in the Department of Homeland Security DHS, whose ST Directorate s FY2006 RD budget, according to OMB, is almost 1.4 billion, almost 20 more than FY2005, enacted. This is the largest percentage increase for any federal agency RD mission. The increase is less, about 3, if funding for TSA, FY2005, is included in the calculation. DHS is mandated to coordinate total federal agency homeland security RD, which was requested at 4.0 billion. Policy issues include priority-setting within DHS and other agencies, performance monitoring, and interagency coordination. This report will be updated.
