  1. Using a current (2014-2018) Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD), Presidential Policy Directive (PPD), National Security Presidential Directive (NSPD), or an Executive Order (EO), compose a four to six (4-6) page executive briefing presenting the legal basis for the policy. The format should comply with APA (6th) using the executive briefing template.

Pick only one (1) from the following:

  • PPD: 28—Signals Intelligence Activities
  • NSPD: 10—United States Conventional Arms Transfer Policy
  • EO: 13865—Executive Order on Coordinating National Resilience to Electromagnetic Pulses

Grades are based on the following:

  • Identification of the legal basis of the policy;
  • Less then 20% of sourced material used in turnitin.com
  • Fully performing the task assigned;
  • Offering creative and/or critical opinions;
  • Pro vs cons of the policy;
  • Budget analysis on the policy, is it good for the tax payers, why or why not? ;
  • Whether you support or do not support this policy with your personal opinion in your conclusion;
  • Expressing yourself clearly and concisely;
  • Forming logical arguments and conclusions;
  • Use of the executive briefing template;
  • Grammar and compliance to APA (6th) including citations and reference page;
  • Double spaced; and
  • Times New Roman, 12 point font.

This is from the professor: The two biggest issues I get from the next assignment is this; Yes, there is always a budget analysis. Simply saying there is not a budget analysis is NOT completing the assignment. So yes, there is research on your end. Second, in the Conclusion, I am looking for your personal opinion on whether you YOU support the policy or not when you give your recommendation to you supervisor. I think both are pretty straight forward but again, I see most of the points taken off in those two areas.
