Soraya Correa: DHS Component Agencies Strive to Assess Contract Vehicles Against Requirements

Soraya Correa

Soraya Correa, chief procurement officer at the Department of Homeland Security, said DHS’ component agencies need to identify acquisition programs to be suitable for their operations amid the federal government’s increasing focus on “best-in-class” contracts, FCW reported Friday. Correa cited the Transportation Security Administration’s Flexible Agile Scalable Teams contract vehicle and DHS EAGLE Next Gen contract as examples that the department’s procurement efforts are not always confined to best-in-class contracts and category management policies.

“When you talk about programs like FAST — or any of the other programs that we have out there, even EAGLE Next Gen — they are based on our having reviewed our requirements against the available set of vehicles that are out there and our determination that we need to go forward with a particular procurement,” Correa said.
