Calling for help from the private sector, Steve Cooper, special assistant to the President and CIO in the White Houses' Office of Homeland Security, called for a "network of networks" of federal, state, and local governments and certain private sector industries to be developed as a national enterprise architecture (NEA).

    "What if we take existing networks at all levels of government and the private sector as appropriate and integrate them? The challenges are true standards and interoperability. We can solve those problems," Cooper said at the Federal CTO Forum 2002 here.

    The day after the Republicans captured a mid-term majority in the House and Congress, Cooper stated that he is confident a Department of Homeland Security bill will be passed and that a national enterprise architecture could be a reality in two to three years.
