As the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chief Procurement Officer, one of my top priorities is to encourage open and meaningful communications between government and industry. I established the Acquisition Innovation Roundtables (AIRs) to create a forum for industry and government to exchange ideas and information on how we can improve our business processes and communications. The most recent DHS AIR, held February 25, 2019, provided a forum for industry association representatives and federal government personnel to discuss the personnel security clearance process. During the session, the two groups exchanged information and came up with ideas to improve the process and share information. Representatives from the Office of the Chief Security Officer, the Office of the Chief Information Officer, Federal Protective Service, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, the Office of Procurement Operations and the Office of the Chief Procurement Officer joined in the open discussion with industry association representatives. Topics discussed included the new Access Lifecycle Management tool, personnel security language in solicitations and statements of work, and other resources available on DHS.gov.

DHS has formally adopted the Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) government-wide best-in-class contract vehicle into its strategic sourcing and category management portfolio. The HCaTS contract vehicle will enable DHS to obtain customizable and complex human capital management and training solutions across three key service areas: training and development, human capital strategy and organizational performance improvement. HCaTS will give DHS components access to contractors – both small and large businesses – with significant human capital and training expertise.
