WASHINGTON—Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson announced today that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through the General Services Administration (GSA), has awarded three orders under the Department’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program (CDM), making CDM tools and services available to 17 additional Federal agencies. DHS has now made CDM available to 97 percent of the federal civilian government.
Last month, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) formally committed to using the General Services Administration’s (GSA) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contracts for the acquisition of the Department’s professional services needs in the future. By adopting OASIS as part of our strategic sourcing program, DHS will take advantage of the work GSA has done to improve the proposal evaluation and negotiation processes, ordering lead times, and promote transparency. OASIS will eventually replace the Department’s Technical, Acquisition, and Business Support Services (TABSS) contracts, which successfully meet the Department’s current needs but expires in two years. DHS programs can continue to use TABSS but can also begin using OASIS to meet their longer term needs. Leaders across DHS and GSA are committed to ensuring a smooth transition.
WASHINGTON – Today, the United States, Canada, and the State of Michigan concluded and signed an arrangement regarding the staffing and operation of the U.S. customs plaza at the proposed New International Trade Crossing (NITC) linking Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario.

Under the terms of the arrangement, the U.S. customs plaza will be procured as part of the NITC public-private partnership (PPP) that will finance, design, construct, operate and maintain the rest of the project. The costs of the NITC project will be repaid from future toll revenues.
