The Center for Domestic Preparedness’ Asset Management Division has been named one of the best operations of its type in the Department of Homeland Security.

The division was given that distinct and honorable rating in late July by a team of asset management experts from Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters and the Department of Homeland Security after they completed an exhaustive review of the division’s day-to-day operations.

Some of the processes and procedures employed by the division are going to be instituted at other agency and department locations, the joint team added.

The CDP Asset Management Division oversees a catalog of nearly 14,000 individual pieces of equipment valued at about $33 million. The property, which must be continually and correctly accounted for, includes everything from simple thumb drives to shuttle buses.

The nine-person division is led by Supervisory Program Analyst Matthew Miller and Supervisory General Supply Specialist Monica Sheffield.
