DHS Acquisition of IT More Than Agile

Borras_RafaelIn an FCW interview on May 28, Rafael Borras, DHS under secretary for management, tied the environment for IT acquisition at his department to a watershed moment ‘several years ago when one of DHS’ component agencies was procuring a massive border security project.

The interview relates a DHS contract with Boeing that reminds me of ECSS! But Mr. Borras relates several elements in the DHS acquisition strategy development for IT projects that I wish our DOD acquisition professionals could embrace. Check out the full interview on FCW at Borras Interview

Also check out the related FCW post “Why not Functionally Better vs. LPTA” where Dale Luddeke questions the impact of Low Price acquisitions, large or small, on the ability of agencies to add leading-edge capabilities.
