 January 7, 2003.--Referred to the Committee on Homeland Security and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                     Washington, November 25, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    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.
