FY 2012 PSGP Priorities • Port Resilience and Recovery Capabilities • Ensuring resilience to disasters is one of the core DHS missions • PSGP funds are intended to enable continuity of operations and/or rapid recovery of the port in the event of a disaster • Ports that have not already done so are encouraged to develop a Business Continuity/Resumption of Trade Plan • Training and Exercises • Exercises must follow the Area Maritime Security Training Exercise Program (AMSTEP) or the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Intermodal Security Training Exercise Program (I-STEP) guidelines • Equipment Associated with Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Implementation • Infrastructure and installation projects that support TWIC implementation will be given a higher
PSGP Partners FEMA designs and operates the administrative mechanisms to implement and manage the PSGP. The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) provides programmatic subject matter expertise for the maritime industry; coordinates intelligence information and risk/vulnerability assessments to rank and rate critical infrastructure and key resources nationwide; and defines parameters for identifying, protecting, deterring, responding, and recovering from terrorist attacks
PSGP Review Process • PSGP has competitive and non-competitive, as well as local and Federal components to its three review processes • Initial Review: FEMA conducts an initial review of all PSGP applications for completion. Applications passing this review are grouped by port area and provided to the applicable Captain of the Port (COTP) for further review • Field Review: Field-level reviews are managed by the COTP in coordination with Maritime Administration (MARAD) and Area Maritime Security Committees (AMSC). Field Reviewers may be Federal, State, and local personnel who advise the COTP as local area subject matter experts; they complete Field Review Forms for each project with scores, prioritization, and supporting comments/justification • National Review: The National Review Panel (NRP) convenes to review each project and develop a final list of recommend funding. The NRP consists of Federal representatives from FEMA, USCG, MARAD, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), and Buffer Zone Protection Program (BZPP). A risk-based algorithm is applied to the NRP’s validated, prioritized list for each port area in all groups
