Example text

On November 25, 2002, President Bush submitted his reorganization plan (as required by the legislation), which mapped out the schedule, methodology, and budget for the monumental task. Beginning March 1, 2003, almost all the federal agencies named in the act began their move, whether literally or symbolically, into the new department. Those remaining followed on June 1, 2003, with all incidental transfers completed by September 1, 2003. Although a handful of these agencies remained intact after the move, most were fully incorporated into one of four new directorates: Border and Transportation Security (BTS), Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection (IAIP), Emergency Preparedness and Response (EP&R), and Science and Technology (S&T).

In this case, instead of being scattered across the federal government, they were scattered within the fledgling Department of Homeland Security. Before this reorganization, FEMA programs were constantly being tasked and taxed to provide financial and human resources to support higher priority programs in DHS. By taking apart the core programs of FEMA, it became even easier to reassign its resources and diminish its mission within DHS. Mike Brown’s role in this reorganization has never been fully illuminated.

Michael Brown, formerly general counsel to FEMA and acting deputy director was named as the acting director of FEMA within the DHS Emergency Preparedness and Response Directorate. Mike Brown came to FEMA because of his long, personal friendship with Albaugh. His academic training was in law, and prior to coming to FEMA, he had been the executive director of the Arabian Horse Association based in Colorado. On his resume, Brown indicated that he had experience in local emergency management, which would come under question in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
