Acquisition Innovations in Motion

The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Unity of Effort initiative aims to make the Department greater than the sum of its parts. DHS is an interconnected organization whose different pieces fit together in the pursuit of a common mission: protect the homeland. In support of the mission, the Acquisition Innovations in Motion (AIiM) is a series of initiatives and industry activities focused on reciprocal learning between DHS and industry.

The goals of AIiM are to institutionalize a consistent and recurring approach to industry engagement and implement targeted initiatives designed to improve the DHS acquisition process. A component of AIiM is the Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL), a unique test environment for exploring innovative technologies for increasing efficiencies in the procurement process and institutionalizing best practices.

Below is an interactive list of upcoming and past industry engagements sponsored by the AIiM initiative, PIL program, the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business, and Strategic Sourcing program. Component industry days and events are also included. For detailed information on specific events, please monitor www.fbo.gov.
