Topic: The Department of Homeland Security

Question: Assume you are the Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff?s Executive Assistant. After the 2012 Presidential Elections, no matter who wins, the Chief of Staff predicts there will be a 70 percent turnover in senior DHS staff (under & assistant secretaries, agency heads, senior executive service (SES), etc.). In preparation for the Secretary filling these future vacancies, the Chief of Staff directs you to prepare a short scholarly study on ?How does the point of view (perception) of senior DHS officials affect the specific nature and scope of homeland security policy? The purpose of this short scholarly study is to prepare the Secretary for the types of background experience and education she should consider in preparing to fill the future vacancies in DHS senior leadership positions. Your primary audience for this study is the Secretary, who is most likely to fill the vacancies with persons sympathetic to her political party?s ideology unless given good reasons to use another selection method. Use the following Option Memo format for your study.

OPTION MEMO FORMAT – To delineate a number of alternative responses to a policy or management problem without selecting a preferred course of action or approach.

Issue
A one or two sentence statement of the issue being addressed.

Discussion
Why the issue was developed and is worthy of analysis. How did the issue come into existence? Who are the contending parties and where do they stand?

Options
For each alternative a heading is given that briefly distinguishes options from each other. Where possible, use active headings (i.e., start each heading with a verb). For example, if the issue was “the elevator crisis at SIPA” you might consider the following option headings:
1. Build new elevators.
2. Move classrooms to the fourth floor.
3. Develop a more effective maintenance program.

Under each heading you would then include the following subheadings:
Recommendation- A brief statement that defines the option.
Rationale (or Analysis)- A succinct analysis of the costs, benefits and probable impact of the option. Possibly in pro/con format.

Next Steps
This section is not included in many options analyses. If you are simply stating the alternatives, the next steps are entirely up to your reader. If you are attempting to move the dialogue toward a decision, you should describe the steps that might be taken to come to a decision.
