That same day, the President inaugurated the issuance of HSPDs "that shall record and communicate presidential decisions about the homeland security policies of the United States." The initial directive concerned the organization and operation of the HSC; the second, also issued on October 29, pertained to combating terrorism through immigration policies; (5) and the third, issued March 11, 2002, established the Homeland Security Advisory System of five graduated threat conditions to apprise the executive branch and the nation of the risk of a terrorist attack.

As the brief review of the development of NSDs shows, their function is not only to provide reviews/information for the president to make decisions about national security policy but also to provide a vehicle for "recording and communicating presidential decisions" (HSPD 1, October 29, 2001) about national security policy.
