I am pleased to announce, for the seventh year in a row, the Department of Homeland Security has earned an “A” grade on the Small Business Administration’s Annual Small Business Procurement Scorecard.
For the Sixth year in a row, the Department of Homeland Security has earned top scores on the Small Business Administration’s Annual Small Business Procurement Scorecard. The DHS Small Business Program continues to be one of the Department’s flagship procurement initiatives. I am proud of our track record, and this year we did even better with an “A+,” the highest possible score. The Department is the only agency to receive a grade of “A” six years in a row, and is the largest Federal agency to ever receive a score of “A+.”
The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) participates in the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program with the Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate. The National SBIR program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal research and development (R&D) that has the potential for commercialization.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was recognized today with an “A” rating by the Small Business Scorecard for its success in contracting with small businesses. This is the third year in a row DHS has received an “A” rating.
