ARLINGTON, Va., May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Eagle Hill Consulting was selected to provide program management, training, exercise, and risk-based security planning solutions for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Eagle Hill's work with TSA will help strengthen security and reduce risk to the nation's transportation infrastructure.
The award is structured as five-year contract with a $30 million ceiling to provide support services for the Intermodal Security Training & Exercise Program (I-STEP). I-STEP serves the port and intermodal, aviation, mass transit, freight rail, highway and motor carrier and pipeline industries. It is the only federal exercise program focused on the security nexus of the intermodal transportation environment, and it reduces risk to individual systems along with the nation's entire transportation network.
The selection of Eagle Hill is historic. It is the largest woman-owned small business set-aside contract ever awarded by DHS.
"Eagle Hill Consulting is well-positioned to tap its depth of experience and talented team to support the vital security mission of TSA and I-STEP," said Melissa Jezior, president and chief executive officer of Eagle Hill Consulting. "Transportation risks are continuously shifting, and we will work hand-in-hand with the TSA to deliver strategic management, planning and training services to help protect the nation's vast and vital transportation infrastructure," Jezior said.
Ultimately, Eagle Hill's support to TSA and I-STEP will:
- Strengthen TSA Stakeholder Engagement and Analysis organizational competencies;
- Continuously improve the risk posture of transportation systems serving the nation; and
- Enhance security capabilities, build partnerships and gain insights in transportation security.
The contract award signifies Eagle Hill's continued prominence in the border security and transportation sectors. Eagle Hill delivers services under contracts with TSA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
