The Story Of DHS’s Reverse Industry Days – A New Approach To Public Procurement

I had the great fortune to speak with several leaders in government and industry about a novel approach to improving communication: the reverse industry day. At a time when seemingly everyone agrees that collaboration between government and industry leaves a lot to be desired, it is refreshing to hear of the success the Department of Homeland Security has experienced by turning the tables on the traditional approach to communication.

In episode 12 of the Public Impact Podcast, we hear from Soraya Correa, Chief Procurement Officer for DHS, Harrison Smith, formerly DHS Industry Liaison, and Jeff Goldberg, Chief Operating Officer at analytics firm tIAG as they discuss the intent behind the reverse industry day. Throughout the course of the episode, each interviewee shares their take on the problems that reverse industry days solve, their hopes for more open and earnest communication, and what other agencies can do to reap the benefits of this novel approach to learning.

    It was an honor and a privilege to participate in the DHS Reverse Industry Day – representing the industry perspective.  Thank you also to PSF and Frank specifically for including me in the podcast.  I’d be happy to chat more about the event if anyone is interested in further discussion and detail.
