9/11: A Government Changed
The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks forced the government to transform. The change has been both subtle and dramatic, encompassing everything from building security, to computer security, to how agencies hire and perform background checks. In the 10 years since that fateful day, the government also has created new things, including an entire agency. But maybe the biggest change has been the influx of federal employees inspired to serve. Federal News Radio evaluates the impact these changes have made on how the government meets this crucial mission and on the employees and contractors who are called upon daily to protect the homeland.
How 9/11 attacks impacted government contractors

Chris Bonin, the director of Homeland Security Solutions for government contractor CACI, joined the Federal Drive to discuss how the attacks have impacted federal contractors.
Bonin, who at the time worked in New York City's Office of Emergency Management, was only about a thousand feet from Ground Zero in New York City, when the Twin Towers came down.
"The vendor community came through with flying colors" in terms of getting agencies and first responders equipment," he said.
But how have homeland security companies and divisions at contracting firms evolved?
He also discussed how CACI's Homeland Security Solutions has changed over the years and what factors today influence the way it does business.
