DHS Contracts?

Posted by Bill on April 18, 2008

Congressman Bennie Thompson, D-MS, is chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security.  Congressman Thompson is publishing a newsletter on information for contracting opportunities with DHS.

He states:

In this edition of the newsletter, you will find information on existing opportunities with the Department,
the Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR), and the Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA).


I began this newsletter to alleviate the gap that exists between the need for information about opportunities available at the Department and the ability to locate and disseminate that information in a timely and user-friendly manner.  Similarly, my experience has taught me that the gap between need and ability also affects businesses in their quest to interact with the Department. A small business owner may have a concept for a product that will address an important homeland security need, but lack the resources necessary to bring
the product on-line. A large company may not have developed the original concept, but may possess the resources necessary to transform a prototype into an available product. The gap between concept and production can be bridged by providing each party with the type of information they need to create a product that fills a critical need.

This newsletter is intended to bridge the gaps that keep information unavailable, sidelines worthwhile businesses, discourages full participation, and permits vulnerabilities to continue.
