In 2007, the U.S. government launched an initiative to develop people with the proper skills, knowledge, and experience for working collaboratively on national security issues that cut across departments and agencies. Representatives Geoff Davis (R-KY) and Ike Skelton (D-MO) introduced legislation in September 2010. In its congressionally mandated study released in December 2010, The Power of People: Building an Integrated National Security Professional System for the 21st Century, PNSR takes a comprehensive look at the government initiative, identifying problems and shortfalls and making recommendations. The study provides a plan to build gradually to a robust Integrated National Security Professional (INSP) system.
