house Bill H.R. 1634

Does DHS Need to Comply With Federal Acquisition Policies In Obtaining Border Security Technology?

Argument in favor

It should be a given that a federal agency must comply with federal acquisition policies, but considering that acquisitions by DHS have been found to be at high risk of waste, fraud, and abuse this bill would increase accountability and transparency.

We need to first find out why this department remains so inefficient and inept in achieving anything measurable for the vast budget it receives.

My question is; why does it cost DHS $500K to do what everyone else is doing at no extra cost. Maybe this is part of the problem. They don't know how to do their job correctly. Dismantle DHS.

On a broader note, congress needs to outlaw cost plus contracts for all government, especially defense and DHS. Since their introduction, huge wastes have been experienced.

Argument opposed

Cost overruns happen in all federal agencies, they aren’t a problem specific to DHS. Besides, DHS is already work on getting its accounting standards up to par with other agencies.

Why? They told the BP to patrol non traffic areas, let the people come iin, and if you don't like it, find another job.

$500,000 to do things they are already in the midst of doing? We should eliminate DHS as we do not have the money. WE ARE 18 TRILLION IN DEBT. STOP SPENDING!
