if you are a
If You Are A….
  • TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPER. We are involved in creating opportunities to collaborate on research, development, testing, and evaluation of high priority technology, items, and equipment. We want to help expedite the advancement of high priority DoD projects that can result in first responder capability improvements.
  • MANUFACTURER. We want to help the DoD identify appropriate private sector manufacturers for the purpose of transferring and commercializing DoD technology for use by first responders.
  • FIRST RESPONDER or PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICIAL. The program exists to leverage DoD investments to enhance your capabilities, today and tomorrow. We work across the DoD and with the DHS and DOJ to accomplish this. There are several types of assistance available.
  • PROCUREMENT OFFICER. There are several programs that allow you to leverage the Federal government’s buying power, and its inventory of surplus equipment, to get the best value for your first responders at the State and local levels.
