Abstract
Implementing U.S. Homeland Security Strategy is probably the most difficult challenge facing the U.S. today. As a result of the Strategy, it is envisioned that many federal, state, local and private organizations will need to develop internal organizations for coordinating support with the Department of Homeland Security. The organization that could potentially have the greatest impact on U.S. Homeland Security Strategy achievement is the Department of Defense. Therefore, it is critical that the Department of Defense design an effective internal organization for supporting the U.S. Homeland Security Strategy and the Department of Homeland Security. This thesis will analyze the Department of Defense's initial efforts in developing its Homeland Security Support organization, and will evaluate its potential effectiveness for supporting the U.S. Homeland Security Strategy. This thesis further seeks to provide a model for organizations to utilize in developing and diagnosing their homeland security support organizations.
