DHS S&T Updates Solicitation Portal for R&D Proposals

The Department of Homeland Security‘s science and technology directorate has updated an online portal used to submit and solicit industry proposals.

DHS said Thursday the modernized Long Range Broad Agency Announcement website offers information on criteria for R&D project evaluation and a list of requirements that align with the S&T Industry Guide and the department’s component priorities. 

“LRBAA is a great way for industry to understand our technology needs and the process improvements will make it easier for us to fund technology that solves pressing homeland security challenges,” said William Bryan, DHS acting undersecretary for science and technology.

The S&T directorate also moved to shorten the period for interested parties to receive a notice of interest from 60 days to 10 days.

DHS added the new process will allow proposers to demonstrate a working prototype through a video and communicate with an S&T program manager.
