The Methodology Technical Implementation (MTI) Project Office supports the 18 critical infrastructure and key resource (CIKR) sectors by integrating risk and vulnerability assessment methodologies into automated tools. MTI efforts address the unique needs and requirements of each sector by working with sector partners to develop tailored solutions that enable the identification, analysis, and management of sector specific security risks. The MTI team collaborates with Sector-Specific Agencies (SSAs), Sector and Government Coordinating Councils (SCCs and GCCs), and divisions within the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Infrastructure Protection. The MTI team also works with sector specialists, risk analysts, private sector individuals, and Federal agency representatives. Efficient and effective use of the MTI tools helps all CIKR sectors nationwide reach their goal of making their sectors safer and provides a way to comply with recommendations in the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). To ensure that interested stakeholders achieve this mission, MTI requests opinions and information from users of the tool regarding tool functions and improvements. The MTI Project Office is administered out of the Infrastructure Information Collection Division (IICD) in the Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP). The survey data collected is for internal MTI, IICD and IP use only. The MTI Project Office will use the results of the Functional Survey to determine levels of customer satisfaction with the MTI tools and prioritize future improvements of key tool functions. The results will also allow the program to appropriate funds cost-effectively based on user need, and cost savings while improving the tool.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security
    (DHS) is the lead coordinator in the national effort to identify 
and prioritize the country's critical infrastructure and key resources 
(CIKR). At DHS, this responsibility is managed by the Office of 
Infrastructure Protection (IP) in the National Protection and Programs 
Directorate (NPPD). In FY2006, IP engaged in the annual development of 
a list of CIKR assets and systems to improve IP's CIKR prioritization 
efforts. This list is called the Critical Infrastructure List. The 
Critical Infrastructure List includes assets and systems that, if 
destroyed, damaged or otherwise compromised, could result in 
significant consequences on a regional or national scale. The IP Data 
Call is administered out of the Infrastructure Information Collection 
Division (IICD) in the Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP). The IP 
Data Call provides opportunities for States and territories to 
collaborate with DHS and its Federal partners in CIKR protection. DHS, 
State and territorial Homeland Security Advisors (HSA), Sector Specific 
Agencies (SSA), and territories build their CIKR data using the IP Data 
Call application. To ensure that HSAs, SSAs and territories are able to 
achieve this mission, IP requests opinions and information in a survey 
from IP Data Call participants regarding the IP Data Call process and 
the Web-based application used to collect the CIKR data. The survey 
data collected is for internal IICD and IP use only. IICD and IP will 
use the results of the IP Data Call Survey to determine levels of 
customer satisfaction with the IP Data Call process and the IP Data 
Call application and prioritize future improvements. The results will 
also allow IP to appropriate funds cost-effectively based on user need, 
and improve the process and application.
