ASD NII / DOD CIO | USA TRADOC Multi Agency Collaboration Environment March 2011
MACE : Transformational Catalyst Organization – Established by DOD CIO/ASD NII and in cooperation with the OSD Special Capabilities Office (SCO) Transitioning to ISSO and OSD (ATL) Joint Interoperability Mission – To create data sharing partnerships across the federal government Goal – Achieve greater levels of situational awareness and enable more accurate and timely decision making across the DoD and Federal Agencies
MACE Value Proposition Focus on Creating Partnerships across all of Government – Creating Communities of Interest around common problem sets Includes DoD, DHS, DoJ, PM-ISE – Provides neutral ground for partnership development fostering Interagency Interoperability Exposing common solutions between federal agencies and the DoD – Extending the DIB/DI2E framework outside the DoD – Federal Agencies leveraging DoD investment – DoD leveraging federal investment – Economy/Efficiency Mapping requirements across MACE projects to identify synergies
Background Since September 11, 2001, the nation has made progress in our sharing of and access to information across organizational boundaries. – Much remains to be done to support the frontline forces. Over the past 18 months, the MACE has socialized the power of data sharing with numerous agencies and organizations. – While all agree in general that data sharing is critical to our nations security, few are willing to expose data outside their agency firewalls despite advancements in authorization, authentication and security services.
Multi Agency Collaboration Environment COUNTER THREAT FINANCE PILOT ENABLED THROUGH AN ENTERPRISE APPROACH TO DATA SHARING
CTF Data Sharing Pilot Several events this past year highlight successes, challenges and gaps in our ability to effectively share and access information: – The Zazi Bombing Plot – The Fort Hood Shooting – Attempted bombings in Times Square and Christmas 2009 These events have prompted the MACE, in coordination with various DoD, DoJ, state/local/tribal partners, and the Information Sharing Environment (ISE), to begin a pilot effort to demonstrate the value of integrating interagency information through a counter threat finance (CTF) focused analytical effort. To ensuring effective results a comprehensive and cooperative information sharing approach within and among Local, State, Federal, Tribal, DOD and Homeland Security entities is critical.
CTF Pilot Scenario Date Event Stakeholder(s) 01/01/2011 Suspect in Minnesota makes several small cash withdrawals from bank accounts FinCEN 01/01/2011 Suspect purchases 10 AK-47’s at local gun store ATF, MN AG 01/03/2011 Suspect is issued citation for speeding in Oklahoma OK State Police 01/03/2011 Suspect crosses the US-Mex Border at Roma, TX CBP, TX AG 01/04/2011 Suspect re-enters the US with $16,000 cash, which he declares CBP, ICE, FinCEN 01/05/2011 Suspect wires money through Western Union from Texas back to Minnesota Western Union 01/06/2011 Suspect makes several small cash deposits into his accounts FinCEN The information gathered detailing this suspect’s activities is contained in at least seven databases representing seven different agencies. FinCEN as a US Treasury member will have regulatory authority which could entail civil fines and enforcement actions. Other federal, state or local agencies may have interest or investigations ongoing based on other criminality, such as tax evasion, drug trafficking, or interstate transport of contraband.
CTF Pilot Objectives 2 main objectives: – Develop a shared knowledge environment to provide state, local, federal, DoD and tribal partners and decision-makers with centralized access to timely, credible, and actionable data and information. – Produce working folders containing valuable leads on narcotics and gun traffickers based on solid financial intelligence.
CONOP This effort will operate in two six-month phases controlled within a quick turn-around startup operation of limited duration – Phase I: The analytical team creates working folders Leads, analytical products and the amplifying data used to develop the leads will be posted back into working folders for the community to pull. Members will selectively add amplifying information or add comments to the working folders fostering collaboration, data sharing, and action. Each participating organization can use the working folders at their discretion and leverage their content to support local investigations. Requests for information (RFIs) can be posted for the analytical team and answered based on a latest time of value basis. – Phase II: Demonstrate automated processes and single query access Existing best practices will be leveraged and new best practices identified and developed within the analytic and architectural paradigm
Knowledge Enterprise Transforming stove-piped data and application services into a shared knowledge enterprise based on blended DOD, DHS and DOJ standards and Services…
Focus Area - Arizona Unique attributes based on the experience of the collective interagency LE/HS community and evaluation based on agency threat assessments. Key state to drug, weapon, and alien smuggling networks on the SWB and is critical and unique in its proximity to California and Texas. The interstate system containing I-10, I-15, and I-40 connect Arizona to rest of country and provide the necessary access from Southern California to the Eastern US. Threats not only from drug trafficking organizations but also by terrorist groups who are establishing relationships with Mexican smuggling organizations.
Benefit to Operations, Operators and Decision Makers – Provide high fidelity cost benefit data including success metrics to support future implementations – Provide Lessons learned including policy and technology limitations – Demonstrate data discovery across state, local, federal, tribal and DoD levels – Provide a user-defined approach to analysis, visualization, and reporting – the user can define how he/she needs to see and use the information at hand – Demonstrate data persistence allowing for temporal analysis of trends, patterns, and anomalies including long-term recovery assessments and research for trending – Provide a proven effective, and operational capability minimizing cost to agencies for testing, training, and deployment – Support the identification of operational gaps and information requirements
CTF Pilot – the Future Next steps Make data available through NIPR federations so that the COCOMs can view this Federal Data – Bomb data – Drugs – Arson – Weapons – Human Terrain CTF COI DoD
