The new system will be open to security and policy experts nationwide

The Homeland Security Department plans to create an online dialogue with 
security and policy experts nationwide to help officials prepare its 
first Quadrennial Homeland Security Review.

The review, required by the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 
Commission Act of 2007, is expected to use the expertise of security and 
policy experts in federal, state, local and tribal governments, in 
Congress, in the private sector and in academia.

DHS plans to use the online system to seek input on questions or 
concepts that arise during the review process, according to a notice 
published today in the Federal Register.

Having such a broad base of homeland security experts makes such a 
system a necessity, according to DHS officials. “The homeland security 
community is so vast that physically convening representative and 
inclusive study groups that are also able to work efficiently and 
effectively is virtually impossible,” the notice states.
