Homeland Security Enterprise

The Department of Homeland Security was formed in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as part of a determined national effort to safeguard the United States against terrorism. The Department became the third-largest federal department, bringing together 22 different federal agencies, each with a defined role in this effort. Since the Department's creation, the goal is simple: one DHS, with integrated, results-based operations.

In the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), we are building a culture of innovation through our Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL). Central to this culture is training, with the PIL’s interactive “Boot Camp” sessions being one of our signature learning activities for our acquisition workforce, other agencies, and industry. Due to the extremely positive feedback received following prior sessions with these groups, I am pleased to announce that we will host more PIL Boot Camps in the upcoming months. I encourage all interested individuals to attend!
