    The Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group is releasing a report on contracting by the Department of Homeland Security and on the industrial base that supports it. The report covers the years 2004 to 2011 and analyzes top-line DHS contract spending on products, services, and research and development as well as spending across six key components: the US Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the Office of Procurement Operations. In addition, the brief analyzes trends in the types of contracts awarded, the funding mechanisms used, the level of competition, the top 20 contractors and the shares that small, medium, and large companies have accounted for in the homeland security market.

    This session is on the record. Copies of the report were made available at the event and will be posted online.
