The Department of Homeland Security does not have a unified approach to procuring and using handheld chemical identification devices across components, the Office of Inspector General concluded in a new report. DHS components spent about $48.4 million on these devices to meet mission requirements and capability needs. However, each component purchased the equipment separately and did not coordinate common requirements to maximize cost-saving opportunities.
