Recognizing that effective vendor engagement is critical to enhancing competition, identifying commercial item solutions, and realizing savings, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is committed to promoting enhanced vendor engagement in the acquisition process. As a further sign of that commitment, Quality Government/Industry Communication has been established by the DHS Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) as a strategic goal for DHS procurement.
Developed in accordance with Office of Federal Procurement Policy guidance, the DHS Vendor Communications Plan identifies efforts undertaken and planned by the Department to promote greater effectiveness in its engagement with industry. In addition, as a means of informing industry understanding and expectations, the DHS Communications Plan identifies Departmentwide rules for meeting with industry representatives.
