The Coast Guard¿s Deepwater Program has experienced serious performance and mgmt. problems. Deepwater is intended to replace or modernize Coast Guard vessels, aircraft, and the communications and electronic systems that link them together. As of FY 2008, over $4 billion has been appropriated for Deepwater. The Coast Guard awarded a contract in 2002 to lead a system integrator, Integrated Coast Guard Systems, to execute the program using a system-of-systems approach. In response to a Senate report, this report assesses whether the changes the Coast Guard is making to its mgmt. and acquisition

On April 20, 2010, an explosion and fire occurred on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. This resulted in 11 worker fatalities, a massive oil release, and a national response effort in the Gulf of Mexico region by the federal and state governments as well as BP. Several issues for Congress have emerged as a result of the Deepwater Horizon incident. What lessons should be drawn from the incident? What technological and regulatory changes may be needed to meet risks peculiar to drilling in deeper water? How should Congress distribute costs associated with a catastrophic oil

The BP Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, situated about 50 miles off the coast of southern Louisiana, exploded on April 20, 2010, resulting in 11 deaths, 17 injuries, and one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history. In response, the Secretary of the Interior exercised his authority to suspend certain deepwater drilling activities. Given uncertainty about the adequacy of existing safety regulations, the moratorium provided time to determine whether and how deepwater drilling could continue in a safe and environmentally-sound manner. The moratorium was in effect until November 30, 201

The April 20, 2010, explosion of the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig led to the largest oil spill in U.S. waters. It is estimated that the deepwater well ultimately released (over 84 days) over 200 million gallons of crude oil. Although decreasing amounts of oil were observed on the ocean surface following the wellżs containment on July 15, 2010, oil spill response officials and researchers have found oil in other places. A pressing question is where did the oil go? Contents of this report: (1) Intro.; (2) Factors that Impact an Oil Spillżs Fate; (3) The Federal Governmentżs Oil Bud

The Coast Guard (CG) is in the final stages of planning the largest procurement project in its history -- the modernization &/or replacement of over 90 cutters & 200 aircraft used for missions beyond 50 miles from shore. This project, called the Deepwater Capability Replacement Project, is expected to cost over $10 billion & take 20+ years to complete. In 2001, the CG will be evaluating proposals now being developed by 3 contracting teams competing for a contract to build the deepwater system. The CG plans to award a contract to one of these teams early in 2002. This report monitors the projec
