Q: What is the timeline for the Department of Homeland Security and other DHS components to move to the St. Elizabeths campus?
A: The timeline and plan for the Department of Homeland Security and other DHS components to make the move to St. Elizabeths is dependent on appropriations. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano stated in January 2013 that the Department is working with Congress and the Office of Management and Budget to reschedule when DHS headquarters and agency components will move to the St. Elizabeths campus.
Secretary Napolitano provided an answer to this question as part of DHS' Ask the Secretary feature for DHS employees. The brief video with her full response is available for viewing at http://www.dhs.gov/video/benjamin-ball-dhs-hq/.
