DHS is crushing small business procurement goals and is expected to award up to $9B more to small biz before the end of the FY.
DHS Chief Procurement Officer, Paul Courtney, stated that DHS is “knocking it out of the park” when it comes to awarding contracts to small businesses while the agency moves forward with its strategy to increase industry collaboration and improve the procurement experience. Last fiscal year, DHS awarded 38.25% of total eligible contracting dollars to small businesses, sailing past the government-wide goal of 23% and the department’s own goal of 33.25%.

With 33 business days left in this fiscal year, as of Wednesday, Courtney said DHS has obligated between $16B and $17B total, and is on track to hit $23 billion to $25 billion.
