(Return to main page)

Introduction

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), the evaluation arm of Congress, has been asked by Congress to review how agencies approach the physical security of non-military federal facilities that the Federal Protective Service (FPS) is not responsible for protecting. As part of this study, GAO is surveying chief security officers at federal executive branch agencies. The results of this survey, along with other information we obtain during the course of our study, will help inform a written report to Congress. Your participation is essential for us to provide Congress with a comprehensive understanding of physical security at federal facilities that FPS does not protect.

Responding to these questions should take about 60 to 90 minutes and can be completed over multiple sittings. Your responses can be saved and accessed at a later date. You may need to consult with your agency's facilities manager or other physical security staff to answer some of the questions. To learn more about completing the questionnaire, printing your responses, and whom to contact if you have questions, _____. If you are unsure of how to respond to a question, please contact us for assistance. Important definitions used throughout the survey can also be found _____.

The results of this survey generally will be provided in summary form in our report. Individual answers may be discussed in the report, but they will not include any information that could be used to identify individuals' or agencies' names. GAO is not authorized to withhold information from Congress or a court. Should we receive a congressional request or court order for information about your individual responses to this survey, we will notify you and provide you an opportunity to express concerns to the requester or court prior to disclosure.

Thank you for your time and assistance.
