Federal News Radio's Causey Awards honor top achievers in federal human resources. It's named after our own Mike Causey in tribute to his career spent reporting on issues that matter to the federal workforce. This year judges have selected four winners. One is Nick Nayak, former chief procurement officer of the Department of Homeland Security. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said human resource management is key to procurement success.
As the former chief procurement officer at DHS, Nick Nayak led a governmentwide push to build a smarter acquisition workforce. He was named a 2014 Causey Award winner for his efforts.
Just as the Pentagon depends on DARPA to keep the military on the cutting edge of science and technology, so too, does the Department of Homeland Security have an ARPA to keep DHS agencies out on the technological edge. On this edition of AFCEA Answers, Dr. Adam Cox, Acting Director of the Homeland Security Advanced Projects Research Agency (HSARPA) discusses the similarities - and the differences - between his organization and DARPA. He explains how "tech foraging" allows HSARPA to meet customer needs while saving taxpayers a buck or two. And he offers an unclassified look at some forward thinking technological solutions now being developed for transportation and border security.
The Homeland Security Department's acquisition shop is in a far different place today than it was when Nick Nayak became the chief procurement officer in 2010. The acquisition team — and Nick himself — have won a number of recognitions for progress and excellence. Nick's last day at DHS was the first week of July. In this exit interview, Francis Rose asked him what he'd say to the contracting community about the future of acquisition on In Depth.
This fall, five more schools will offer an intensive science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education track to students who are serious about federal cybersecurity careers. These Centers of Academic Excellence are overseen jointly by the National Security Agency and the Homeland Security Department. Schools have to pass a meticulous screening process to qualify for the program. Steve LaFountain is dean of the NSA's College of Cyber. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the new move.
Larry Zelvin is stepping down as the director of DHS's National Cyber and Communications Integration Center (NCIC) next month after almost 30 years of government service.
The National Association of Corporate Directors' (NACD) Handbook on Cyber-Risk Oversight, introduced Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, outlines five key principles that aim to move forward the collaborative cybersecurity effort.
After spending $1 billion on a failed border security fence project, the Homeland Security Department restarted the project a couple of years ago. But it didn't get far. A $145 million award for seven new surveillance towers has been halted thanks to a successful protest. Raytheon filed the protest against the winning bidder, EFW, an affiliate of the Israeli defense contractor Elbit. The Government Accountability Office sustained the protest. In this week's legal loop segment, Procurement Attorney Joe Petrillo joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to sort out the case.
