Priorities, Goals, and Opportunities

Homeland Security Department has an IT budget that will top $6 billion in fiscal 2016 and there is no expectation that it will shrink in the coming years.

But while the number is large, it is matched by the size and complexity of the DHS procurement environment. The department has 14 component agencies, each with their own culture and priorities.

The agency is working hard to consolidate spending through its own contract vehicles as well as a reliance on major GSA contracts, but this is not a one-size fits all department.

Our industry day included speakers from across DHS who provided insights into what and how they are buying and how the private sector can help the department meet its critical mission of protecting the homeland.

Another important component of DHS is the large role it plays across the government in area the area of cybersecurity. For instance, its $6 billion Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation contract is open to all civilian agencies and is emerging as the vehicle of choice for many looking for managed security services.

At our half-day event, attendees gained a better understanding of the department’s procurement culture, its strategic goals and upcoming opportunities. Attendees heard from important decision makers at DHS as well as had an opportunity to network with colleagues and potential partners.
