The Department of Homeland Security is considering a new structure for the follow-on contract to the EAGLE I, to be called EAGLE II-Unrestricted. They are deciding between two different strategies. One strategy would be to reduce the number of functional categories from five to three and one would be to have no categories at all. Right now with the areas of expertise there is very little competition. According to Ray Bjorkland, the senior VP of FedSources, “it opens up opportunities for more aggressive competition.”
Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has appointed 24-year APL veteran Andy Oak as mission area executive for homeland protection.
