DHS extends deadline for FirstSource proposals

The Homeland Security Department has pushed back the due date for proposals for its FirstSource contract to Jan. 23. Proposals had been due Jan. 10.

DHS released the request for proposals Nov. 18.

FirstSource, a five-year, $3 billion, small-businesses-only contracting vehicle, will furnish DHS with a range of interoperable IT equipment and software. Companies with a maximum of 150 employees are allowed to bid as primes on FirstSource.

FirstSource and its companion contracting vehicle, Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions (EAGLE), are designed to help DHS establish a departmentwide IT architecture.
