Mission

  • Council's National Conversation with Secretary Ridge, Secretary Chertoff, Secretary Napolitano, and Admiral Thad Allen.

Our programs and initiatives focus on ensuring that the defining strengths of the private sector - its creativity, innovation, expertise, and solutions -help the government achieve its vision and mission for homeland security. We facilitate and promote activities that allow for an open, transparent, and vital exchange of ideas and perspectives between senior executives from the homeland security industry and their counterparts in government. Our member companies believe that both government and industry can attain tremendous benefits from having more frequent engagement and productive communication well in advance of the formal contracting process.

By working together, government and industry can discuss the best ways to solve mission challenges and can determine how to strategically align their resources, minimize duplicative efforts, and leverage existing technology, expertise, and dollars.
