Program Management - Office of Emergency Communications

Lessons learned from the challenges faced by emergency responders following the events of September 11th and Hurricane Katrina resulted in the creation of the DHS Office of Emergency Communications (OEC) in 2007.  The OEC mission is to unify and lead the nationwide effort to improve emergency communications capabilities across all levels of government.  Lafayette Group staff has provided support to OEC since its creation and throughout its growth in recent years.  Lafayette Group provides subject matter experts and support staff both on-site and at remote locations to assist with planning, analysis, and outreach to State and local officials across the Nation.  This increased awareness was identified as particularly important as government operations continue in an increasingly lean budgetary environment.
