From Fierce Homeland Security:

Coordination of maritime research continues to challenge Homeland Security Department components, says the Government Accountability Office, a finding it says is in line with other research finding that DHS has challenges with research and development coordination. In a Sept. 25 report, the GAO says the three main centers of maritime R&D at DHS–the Borders and Maritime Security Division with the Science and Technology Division, the Coast Guard and the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office–have taken steps to bring customers into the loop of their internal R&D processes, but “work remains to be done at the departmental level.”
