The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate employs a privacy by design approach in its research, development, test and evaluation lifecycle. The S&T privacy lifecycle approach enhances oversight and transparency into department activities and demonstrates accountability to the public. The DHS Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program partners with S&T’s privacy office to build privacy considerations and protections into S&T business processes and mission outcomes.
As the DHS SBIR program prepares for the upcoming 21.1 solicitation, we want to help Small Business Concerns (SBCs) understand DHS privacy policies in order to mitigate privacy impacts when developing proposals in response to topics in the SBIR solicitation. During this webinar, viewers will learn how the DHS SBIR Program Office works with DHS S&T’s Privacy Office to meet statutory requirements. Join us on October 29, at 1 p.m. EST (10 a.m. PST), and learn how to prepare an SBIR proposal with privacy compliance in mind.

DHS uses the SBIR program to fund the development of innovative solutions to help address homeland security needs. SBIR is an excellent opportunity for agile small businesses to support and advance homeland security, without the need for previous federal contracting experience or knowledge. If you are a small business, women-owned small business, or disadvantaged small business find out how you can work with us. We hope to see you there!
