Abstract

The Homeland Security environment is challenging from an organizational perspective. With multiple organizations, levels, perspectives and missions resulting in imperfect networks & linkages of information and communications systems. In an attempt to develop sustainable collaborative efforts Executive Order 13636/Presidential Policy Directive-21 outlined tasking to evaluate and improve United States Critical Infrastructure. Key research activities associated with the Critical Infrastructure Partnership and Culture Study are (1) collect and review current inter-organizational collaborative models, (2) conduct fieldwork with government and industry partners, and (3) review proposed model with focus groups of practitioners. Phase 1 involved a literature review which resulted in a list of over 50 selected articles for analysis. Components of the literature review that depicted best practices & procedures within public-private partnerships as well as key challenges to the collaborative process were summarized and implemented into a Notional Collaborative Framework. Phase 2 consists of interviewing key individuals to evaluate & review the Notional Collaborative Framework and provide recommendations & real world scenarios. The questions will be aimed at gathering data on what partnerships currently exist in their organization and why, what type of controls are in place over the collaborative efforts, what are the best practices in executing these collaborative efforts, and what key challenges exist in these collaborations. These recommendations will be implemented into the project to adjust for field conditions the collaborative process is currently experiencing. Phase 3 (February-April) of the project will involve presenting a revised Notional Collaborative Framework and best practices/key challenges to SME’s for review.
