The Department of Homeland Security was formally created in 2002 in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. DHS’ core mission centers on preventing terrorism and enhancing security, to include U.S. borders and cyberspace. Since fiscal year 2012, DHS contract awards have increased by approximately 11% to reach $13.8 billion in fiscal year 2016. The charts below detail fiscal year 2016 contract award data for DHS and are sourced from USASpending.gov and GSA Schedule Sales Query.

Top 10 GSA Schedules

In fiscal year 2016, DHS awarded approximately $990 million in contracts through the GSA Schedule, ranking the agency 4th in terms of highest dollar value of GSA Schedule Contract awards.

We expect DHS’ use of the GSA Schedule – the GSA IT Schedule 70 in particular – to increase over the next few fiscal years. DHS has been working with GSA on the addition of cybersecurity related Special Item Numbers (SINs) to the GSA IT Schedule. Their collaboration resulted in the addition of the Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) SINs in September of 2016. Another new cybersecurity related SIN, Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Tools, is expected in August of 2017.
