SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DHS is the lead coordinator in the national 
effort to identify and prioritize the country's critical infrastructure 
and key resources (CIKR). At DHS, this responsibility is managed by 
NPPD/IP. In FY2006, IP engaged in the annual development of a list of 
CIKR assets and systems to improve IP's CIKR prioritization efforts; 
this list is called the Critical Infrastructure List. The Critical 
Infrastructure List includes assets and systems that, if destroyed, 
damaged or otherwise compromised, could result in significant 
consequences on a regional or national scale.
    The IP Data Call is administered out of IP/IICD. The IP Data Call 
provides opportunities for States and territories to collaborate with 
DHS and its Federal partners in CIKR protection. DHS, State and 
territorial Homeland Security Advisors (HSAs), Sector Specific Agencies 
(SSAs), and territories build their CIKR data using the IP Data Call 
application. To ensure that HSAs, SSAs and territories are able to 
achieve this mission, IP requests opinions and information in a survey 
from IP Data Call participants regarding the IP Data Call process and 
the Web-based application used to collect the CIKR data.
    The survey data collected is for internal IICD and IP use only. 
IICD and IP will use the results of the IP Data Call Survey to 
determine levels of customer satisfaction with the IP Data Call process 
and application and prioritize future improvements. The results will 
also allow IP to appropriate funds cost-effectively based on user need 
and improve the process and application.
