Continuing its outreach to security industry partners, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) held a Strategic Industry Conversation event earlier this month “to discuss program topics that span multiple DHS Offices and Components and impact the DHS Unity of Effort initiative.”
Soraya Correa, DHS Chief Procurement Officer, blogs about the the DHS/industry partnership on the department’s website.
“Nine breakout sessions, led by industry leaders and Department employees,” Ms. Correa notes, “encouraged participants to discuss various topics across the homeland security enterprise, from research and development to cybersecurity acquisitions. Vendors interested in specific mission areas (e.g., aviation security) were able to hear from, and speak with, DHS and industry leaders who are actively engaged in those mission areas.”
DHS notes that information on doing business with the Department can be found at www.dhs.gov/do-business-dhs.
