According to a new report from the Department of Defense Inspector General, DoD security policies "often overlap, are fragmentary, or inconsistent".

In addition, the sheer volume of security policies that are not coordinated or integrated makes it difficult for those at the field level to ensure consistent and comprehensive policy implementation.

According the report, the solution to this fragmentation and incoherence is the development of a comprehensive and integrated security policy.

The Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence is in the process of promulgating an overarching security policy, "Management of the Department of Defense Security Enterprise", that provides guidance for a comprehensive and integrated security framework.

This action is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Also, the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence has created the Defense Security Enterprise Executive Committee, a senior-level governance body for the strategic administration and policy coordination of the Defense Security Enterprise.
