Part 1 needed Friday December 7th

The students will post an outline of their Key Assignment to the Discussion Board as part of their main post. The main post should include any necessary notes regarding the outline.

  • What was done well
  • Weaknesses
  • Areas for improvement

There is an expectation that grammar, spelling, punctuation, and format are correct and professional.

Instructor’s Comments:

Your outline should establish your thought process and your strategy for preparing your research paper. Remember, your research paper shall be 8-10 (body text) pages in length using double-spaced 12-point Times New Roman (TNR) font. That means you shall not make this paper less than 8 pages or more than 10 pages in length of body text. Please do not violate that rule.

Do not write your outline so detailed and so extensive that if you were to write about everything in your outline, you would never be able to fit it all in 10 pages (max.). Remember this: your numbering system using Roman numerals, capital alphabetic letters, Arabic numerals, and lower-case alphabetic letters to identify your headings, subheadings, sub-subheadings, and sub-sub-subheadings shall not transfer over to your research paper.

Please use the “Numbering” tool on the “File” tab in your “Tool Bar.” Please do not use the Space Bar and Tab Key to do your indentation of each line of text. The Numbering tool precludes using your Space Bar and Tab Key. Click on the Down Arrowhead on the Numbering tool. You will see “Define New Numbering Format.” Click on it and set the Roman numeral as the starting level, set the TNR font type and size, and make sure it aligns left. Use the “Decrease Indent” or “Increase Indent” tools to change the level of each line of text. Another alternative would be to “Change List Level” and “Set Numbering Value” as required on each line of text.

These levels of headings comply with Section 3.03 Levels of Heading, Table 3.1 Format for Five Levels of Heading in APA Journals, and page 62 of the APA Manual (Sixth Edition). The First-level Heading would be a chapter in a book, chapter in a master’s thesis, or chapter in a doctoral dissertation.

Your research manuscript shall have no numbering or lettering system whatsoever for the sections, subsections, and sub-subsections. For your papers, do not go below Level 4 bold subheadings on Table 3.1 on page 62 of the APA Manual. Follow the KISS principle—Keep it Short and Simple.

PART 2 due on the 11th of December 8 to 10 pages

You are an action officer in one of the operating agencies or directorates of the Department Homeland Security. You have been assigned to work in the budget development process of the agency or directorate. The senior budget officer has recently been assigned to this office and desires an information paper on the current Strategic Plan (StratPlan) of the agency or directorate to begin preparing for the next Strategic Plan and budget cycle. The budget director has reviewed your information paper (Individual Project 3). The budget director now desires an analysis and decision support paper. The specific intent is to determine if agency or directorate priorities are aligned with department priorities, and if not, what are the realignment requirements to correctly align agency or directorate priorities to the department priorities. Using the work completed in the Unit 3 Individual Project and your instructor’s feedback, conduct an analysis in support of the budget director’s objectives.

Conduct an analysis of the current Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Homeland Security Quadrennial Review (HSQR), Bottom Up Review (BUR), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Fiscal Years (FY) 2014–2018 Strategic Plan (StratPlan), and the DHS FY2015 Budget in Brief (BIB). Prepare a decision support paper. The paper provides a summary of the DHS Strategic Plan and Budget priorities, identifies any agency or directorate priority misalignments, and provides recommendations for agency or directorate program priority alignment within the DHS StratPlan. Justification of all recommendations is required within the report.

Your report is a decision support paper and should be formatted as a formal report. The report should address the following items:

  • Purpose statement
  • Background discussion
  • Analysis methodology discussion
  • Summary and findings of review for each specified document:
    • Homeland Security Quadrennial Review (HSQR)
    • Bottom-Up Review (BUR)
    • the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Fiscal Years (FY) 2014–2018 Strategic Plan (StratPlan), and the DHS FY2015 Budget in Brief (BIB)
  • Summary of key findings
  • Provide any recommendations that you may have
  • Reference all source material and citations using APA 6th edition
  • Use of the CTU Online Graduate Writing template is required
