The Homeland Security Operational Analysis Center (HSOAC) — a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) — provides nonpartisan, independent, objective analyses to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to support policy development, decisionmaking, and alternative approaches. Housed within the RAND Homeland Security Research Division, a research division of the RAND Corporation, HSOAC also supports other federal, state, local, tribal, and public- and private-sector organizations that make up the homeland security enterprise.
