DHS Clamps Down On Lead System Integrators

July 23, 2010

On July 15, 2010, the Department of Homeland Security issued an interim rule which mirrors a DoD rule, restricting contractors from acting as lead system integrators in the acquisition of DHS major systems if they have direct financial interests in the development or construction of individual systems or elements of any system that they integrate. Effective immediately, the rule contains several exceptions and also provides detailed definitions of lead system integrators and direct financial interests.
