Brillient CEO and President, and AFCEA Small Business Committee Chair, Sukumar Iyer, poses with Carla Thomas, the communications and industry liaison for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, at the AFCEA Small Business Committee presentation on “How to Do Business with DHS”.
Carla met with the Committee and shared her extensive knowledge on how to do business with DHS, what DHS buys, how they budget, what they spend on, different innovations, and how they handle small business contracting.
The AFCEA Small Business Committee meets every month and allows two small businesses to present their profile to everyone on the committee. They offer venues for training, networking, information on upcoming procurements, contract vehicles, partnering opportunities, and overall help for small businesses. They also invite speakers, like Carla, from the Government to address the committee and provide information that helps small businesses grow and thrive in the federal contracting arena.
