I/P #10: SECURE EMPLOYEES

Ensure global security provided to the Department of State and foreign affairs agencies is adequate and appropriate for protection of personnel under Chief of Mission authority.

OUTPUT INDICATOR

Indicator #1: Installation of Technical Security Upgrades (100% = 133 posts)

FY Results History 2000 N/A
2001 Baseline: Technical Security Upgrades (TSUs) completed at 23 posts.
2002 TSUs completed at 77 posts.
FY 2003
Data
2003 Results TSUs completed at 111 posts.
Target TSUs completed at 104 posts.
Rating Above Target
Impact The replacement of outdated technical security equipment at our diplomatic facilities has contributed to the greater protection of our employees who are on the frontlines of our nation's diplomatic effort. TSUs have lessened our vulnerability and provided the capability to take a proactive stance against global terrorist threats.

OUTPUT INDICATOR

Indicator #2: Deployment of Chemical Warfare/Biological Warfare (CW/BW) Countermeasure Masks to Posts Abroad

FY Results History 2000 N/A
2001 Baseline: First Responder masks and equipment deployed to all posts.
2002 Two of 240 posts provided employee countermeasure masks.
FY 2003
Data
2003 Results

Seventy-five of 240 posts provided with and trained in the use of countermeasure equipment; this includes

  • 25,528 overseas personnel trained.
  • 95 courses provided for security professionals being trained overseas.
Target

Eighty of 240 posts provided with CW/BW Countermeasures masks.

Rating On Target
Impact CW/BW training and equipment serve to minimize casualties resulting from a Chem/Bio attack among our overseas personnel. By equipping and training all personnel in the use of personal escape masks and self-administration of appropriate medications, the Department's employees will be better protected against these types of attacks.
Other Issues The Department will add four additional training teams and will streamline logistics to provide training to all overseas posts every two years.

OUTPUT INDICATOR

FY Results History 2000 N/A
2001 N/A
2002 N/A
FY 2003
Data
2003 Results Baseline: Forty-eight armored vehicles replaced.
Target Forty-eight armored vehicles replaced.
Rating On Target
Impact AVs provide protection of personnel from terrorist attack thereby providing more protection for Department employees while they carry out the Department's mission.

OUTPUT INDICATOR

Indicator #4: Installation of Access Control Systems (ACS)

FY Results History 2000 N/A
2001 Baseline: Phase 1 completed for the Harry S Truman Building (HST) and 150 new Smart Card badges issued.
2002

Phase 2 was 85 percent complete:

  • 75 percent of personnel data was gathered and entered into the computer database.
  • Phase 2 completed for HST; half of personnel in the Washington National Capital area received new badges.
FY 2003
Data
2003 Results

Completed,

  • 100% of HST Perimeter ACS.
  • 100% of HST Visitor ACS.
  • 95% of HST Network required to support ACS.
  • 25% of HST Infrastructure required to support ACS.
  • 20% of HST ACS readers installation.
Target Complete ACS installation at HST by 12/21/2003.
Rating Slightly Below Target
Impact The Department's ACS program replaces a 15-year old system with a "Smart ID Card" system fully compliant with GSA standards for interoperability, physical access and logical access. The system will also support Public Key Infrastructure and Biometrics.
Other Issues

The results were slightly below target primarily because the Department was unable to leverage contract performance through the existing contract vehicle (i.e., a time & materials contract). To improve performance the Department will,

  • Implement recommendations identified from a comprehensive program review,
  • Implement a new contracting strategy, and
  • Strengthen the project management team.
