Assignment 2: Briefing Report

Review the briefing report titled ?Federal Protective Service: Actions needed to resolve delays and inadequate oversight issues with PS?s risk assessment and management program? located at http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d11705r.pdf.

This insinuates that there ould be other potential threats that are being ignored because they have yet to be exploited.
