IEc is recognized within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as providing exemplary regulatory analysis. Soon after its creation in 2002, the Department sought our expertise in the process and requirements associated with developing legally-defensible regulatory assessments. With nearly 30 years of experience, we provide in-depth understanding of the various analytic directives and requirements framing the development of these analyses, including executive orders, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act), and the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.

We apply our experience to the unique challenges faced by DHS agencies, which must secure the nation from many threats while facilitating legitimate economic activity. We analyze issues related to immigration, trade, travel, and the protection of critical infrastructure. We conduct analyses under a variety of applicable laws, such as:

  • The Consolidated Natural Resources Act;
  • The Immigration and Nationality Act;
  • The Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act;
  • The Maritime Transportation Security Act; and
  • The Security and Accountability for Every Port Act (SAFE Port Act).
