Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas. For this course, you are an Action Officer (AO) assigned to the Executive Secretariat of the Office of the Secretary, Department of Homeland Security (DHS). A new director has been assigned to the secretariat and is your boss. The director has not served in the secretariat previously.

Specifically, the director wants to know the following:
- What is the purpose of a HSPD?
- What are the current HSPDs?
- What is your recommendation of the 3 most important HSPDs, and why are these important to the DHS and the secretary?
