In his statement, Johnson cited the Future of DHS Project Key Findings and Recommendations as informing his observations and recommendations. Additionally, House Appropriations Committee Chair the Hon. Rosa DeLauro referenced the project’s Key Findings and Recommendations for congressional oversight in her questions, highlighting a recommendation for policy and budget officials to closely coordinate on DHS matters.
Importantly, [the Future of DHS Project] recommended that policy and budget officials work more closely together.
