MITRE has announced the Department of Homeland Security has renewed its contract to operate the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute, a federally funded research and development center.
“MITRE has been a trusted partner to DHS for more than a decade, working on some of the nation’s toughest challenges,” said Jason Providakes, MITRE president and CEO. “The mission space of the homeland security enterprise is vast, and our top priority is to support DHS across its operational components while helping them stay ahead of emerging threats and technologies.”
The 5-year contract runs through March 2025.
Jerry Hogge, senior vice president of MITRE public sector, said the company is proud of its record of delivering technical expertise and innovation across DHS.
“We will continue to deliver the full depth and breadth of MITRE’s innovative programs and technical capabilities, including our R&D labs, and our robust relationships with industry and academia to provide value to our federal partners and the public,” he said.
DHS created HSSEDI in 2009, choosing MITRE to operate the institute as its primary systems engineering resource. HSSEDI delivers practical solutions and recommendations through a combination of research and direct project work.
