Strategic sourcing at DHS: an overview

Filed under: Budgets and Spending,DHS News — by Christian Beckner on August 8, 2006

The Department of Homeland Security established a Strategic Sourcing Program back in 2004, as part of an effort to pool spending on certain commodities across all of the constituent DHS agencies, and save money. Up until now, I hadn’t seen a clear exposition of the Program, in one place, but this Powerpoint presentation from a recent conference describes the program in great detail:

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Strategic Sourcing, Bill Oller, June 21, 2006

The presentation notes that $5.5 billion of current DHS acquisition spending could ultimately fall under this initiative, describes how the program is organized, and walks through a few examples, including the joint CBP-USCG Safe Boat program.

How might I get a copy of the PP Presentation by Bill Oller? Is it no longer available?
