US Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Information and Technology expects to move forward on a number of large IT acquisitions over the next two years while also seeking to improve collaboration, agile development, cybersecurity and innovation, officials said.
One of the technology office’s new policies is that most acquisitions now begin with a request for information to seek input from vendors before making a final decision on the acquisition approach. “Tell us what we don’t know,” Charles Armstrong, deputy commissioner for the technology office and CIO, said at the office’s Industry Day. The vendor event was held in conjunction with the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association’s Homeland Security conference.
