The new head of procurement at the Homeland Security Department has a pretty clear vision of how to get - and keep - acquisition on track at his agency.

Nick Nayak has been on the job as Chief Procurement Officer at DHS since September. He discussed where the agency stands today, where he wants to lead the procurement shop, and overcoming some problems the agency has had.
