4 02/20/2014 The DHS Homeland Secure Data Network (HSDN) program is in the Support life cycle phase. The program continues to operate within the acceptable OMB thresholds for cost and schedule variance. The program is continually analyzing likely risks with both high and low impact as well as mitigation strategies. HSDN is meeting the Department's financial, technical, and performance goals, including increasing the number of users without increasing annual operations and maintenance (O&M) costs, as well as maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction. An operational analysis (OA) has been completed. HSDN's effective management of investment risks, procurements, human resources, requirements and its cost & schedule have made it a reliable and available service highly sought by the various DHS components to meet their operational mission needs. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chief Information Officer (CIO) assesses the DHS HSDN program as a Moderately Low Risk investment.

4 07/31/2012 The DHS Homeland Secure Data Network (HSDN) program is a well-managed program in the operations and maintenance lifecycle. As a result, the program's success has bred an increased demand for its service. While this is beneficial, the current projected funding amount for the program may be insufficient to support the emerging demand. The program has sound mitigation strategies in place, but as it proceeds with re-planning and programming, it will be closely monitored to ensure continued success. The program is on schedule to complete the enhancement and implementation of HSDN over broadband by Q4FY12. Additionally, the program is on schedule to complete installation of the State and Local Fusion Centers by Q2FY13. The CIO assesses the DHS HSDN program as a Moderately Low Risk investment.

3 07/27/2011 To mitigate the issues identified in the program review, the NSS Director will provide the CIO with a migration plan to move existing networks to DHS' HSDN. This will include those DHS customers that currently rely on legacy Department of Defense SIPRNET connections and other DHS SECRET networks deployed by the components to include TSA TRACE and HSIN-Secret. A process will be developed to vet enterprise requirements to ICCB and work with the ISGB on overall information sharing approaches for DHS. This will be integrated into the overall ISGB governance model for networks.
