Executive Briefing with David Grauel, Program Manager, Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology, DHS Office of Biometric Identity Management

On June 13th, Council members were briefed by David Grauel, the Program Manager of the Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology (HART) system within the DHS Office of Biometric Identity Management (OBIM) in that NPPD. OBIM is the lead provider of enterprise “Match-Store-Share-Analyze” biometric identity services for DHS and other federal agencies. Mr. Grauel described the status and scope of their efforts to replace IDENT to HART utilizing agile teams, dev-ops, and moving to the cloud. He also highlighted the challenges of working through constantly changing requirements, building the data architecture, and converting the data. We are following up with his team to ask questions and suggest ways for them to engage with industry as they plan for Increment 3 and 4 of the system. We thank SAIC for hosting this event!
