Dear Mr. Speaker: Pursuant to section 1502 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, I submit herewith the enclosed Reorganization Plan for the Department of Homeland Security. The Reorganization Plan provides information concerning the elements identified in section 1502(b), and is subject to modification pursuant to section 1502(d) of the Act. In accordance with section 1502(a) of the Act, please transmit this Reorganization Plan to the appropriate congressional committees. The details of this Plan are set forth in the enclosed letter from the Director of the Office of Management and Budget. I concur with his comments and observations. Sincerely, George W. Bush. Enclosure. Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget, Washington, DC, November 24, 2002. The President, The White House. Submitted for your consideration is a Reorganization Plan for the Department of Homeland Security. Section 1502 of the Department of Homeland Security Act of 2002 requires you to submit, not later than 60 days after enactment, a reorganization plan concerning (1) the transfer of agencies, personnel, assets, and obligations to the Department, and (2) any consolidation, reorganization, or streamlining of agencies transferred to the Department. The Plan is subject to modification pursuant to Section 1502(d) of the Act, which provides that on the basis of consultations with appropriate congressional committees you may modify or revise any part of the Plan until that part of the Plan becomes effective. As described below and in more detail in the enclosure, the Plan provides available information concerning six element set out in the statute: (1) Identification of any functions of agencies transferred to the Department pursuant to the Act that will not be transferred to the Department under the plan. (2) Specification of the steps to be taken by the Secretary to organize the Department, including the delegation or assignment of functions transferred to the Department among officers of the Department in order to permit the Department to carry out the functions transferred under the plan. (3) Specification of the funds available to each agency that will be transferred to the Department as a result of transfers under the plan. (4) Specification of the proposed allocations within the Department of unexpended funds transferred in connection with transfers under the plan. (5) Specification of any proposed disposition of property, facilities, contracts, records, and other assets and obligations of agencies transferred under the plan. (6) Specification of the proposed allocations within the Department of the functions of the agencies and subdivisions that are not related directly to securing the homeland. The Plan sets forth an aggressive and ambitious schedule for transferring agencies and programs to the new Department of Homeland Security, with nearly all affected agencies and programs moving to the Department on March 1, 2003. Additional details concerning the process for transferring these agencies into the Department will become available in the coming weeks and months, and, as Congress expressly recognized, the initial plan will be subject to modification to include such details. Transmittal of the Reorganization Plan now will avoid bureaucratic inertia that would prevent us from fulfilling our mission and well serves your imperative to establish a fully- functioning Department of Homeland Security at the earliest possible date to protect our Nation and our future. Sincerely, Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., Director. <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
