Strategic Industry Conversations (SIC) are events that enable program area topic discussions between DHS leaders and industry. Unlike typical “industry days” covering specific procurements or components within DHS, Strategic Industry Conversations help industry understand DHS program posture by focusing on topics that span multiple components. Strategic Industry Conversations are conducted under the Acquisition Innovations in Motion (AIiM) framework. New Strategic Industry Conversations are announced on fbo.gov. Here you will find archived information about the events, including presentation materials and event summaries.
