Department of Homeland Security Hosts One-day R&D Best Practices Workshop for Industry
Industry will play a key role in finding technological solutions to our nation's homeland security challenges. It is critical that DHS develop an efficient and flexible R&D bid and procurement process so that it can work with the best talent in the field.
Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) is sponsoring a one-day workshop to understand from industry how best to work with them in achieving DHS R&D aims. Our goal is to gather input on best practices in order to optimize the solicitation, bid, procurement and program execution process.
When: November 17, 2003
8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Where: Sheraton National Airport
900 South Orme Street
Arlington, VA 22204
Bidding on, and winning, work with the federal government can be a complex process for both large and small commercial firms. DHS is committed to simplifying this process.
Science and Technology: A Key Element in the War on Terrorism America's vast resources in science and technology give our nation a key advantage to fighting - and winning - the war on terrorism. Our nation needs industry and government working together to develop homeland security solutions. The Department of Homeland Security is working to establish successful partnerships between industry and the federal government to prevent or mitigate catastrophic terrorism against the United States.
In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to make recommendations to DHS on the following:
- Planning: What do you need to know about DHS priorities in order to conduct your strategic and tactical planning?
- Solicitations: What processes should DHS use to publicize and conduct our solicitations?
- R&D Contracting: How can DHS best use the various contracting authorities provided to us?
- Program Management: How can DHS best work with industry to ensure successful program execution?
- And more.
Your input is critical to DHS developing best practices for working with industry.
