Full Response Package


The Research and Development Partnerships Group is responsible for initiatives that identify, evaluate and commercialize technology for the specific goal of rapidly developing and deploying products and services that meet the specific operational requirements of DHS components and other stakeholders such as the first responder community. The S&T Full Response Package provides details about a variety of business and engagement opportunities.

The Constituent Guide to Doing Business contains information about unsolicited proposals. S&T offers a number of solicitations, including targeted Broad Agency Announcements (BAAs) [https://baa2.st.dhs.gov/ | Link no longer valid] and the Long Range BAAs (LRBAA), which cover a wide variety of R&D topic areas.

The Private Sector Resource Catalog contains contact information for many offices within DHS that may be of interest. For example, S&T's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is designed to assist small businesses with developing new research and development (R&D) projects. The SBIR funds fewer topics than the LRBAA, but it compensates by providing many more details on specific R&D projects. More information on SBIR can be obtained at https://sbir2.st.dhs.gov/portal/SBIR/ [Link no longer valid].

The Product Realization Guide is designed as a resource to assist in project execution relative to technology development. This systematic approach facilitates efficient and effective product development by reducing the risk of unidentified errors and product development shortfalls. It is intended that this guide be incorporated as an easy-to-use resource to ensure due diligence throughout the product development life cycle.

You can find listings of solicitations from DHS and other organizations across the federal government at Federal Business Opportunities [http://www.fbo.gov/ | Link no longer valid]. This comprehensive database can be searched to identify a variety of solicitations and requests for information on topics of need from many government agencies.

Please take the opportunity to review and complete the Company Overview and Capabilities Form document that is linked below; the completed form can be emailed to SandT_Commercialization@hq.dhs.gov. This will ensure that S&T has a quick reference of your company’s capabilities. Moreover, it will assist S&T in effectively directing you to the right points of contact in both S&T and DHS at large.
