USCIS Vendor Engagement

About USCIS Vendor Engagement

We created this site to provide timely and meaningful information to help you with your bid no-bid decisions. This site will also help you to submit better proposals in response to our solicitations. Start with Do Business with DHS to learn how to work with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its components, such as USCIS.

We use a wide range of department-wide acquisition vehicles (also known as strategic sourcing vehicles) to procure the goods and services we need. Most of these vehicles are mandatory for us to use. We will only send awardees of that vehicle any solicitations in accordance with the ordering instructions. Therefore, you should seek out a prime contract holder for subcontract contracting opportunities under these contracts. To learn more, see the DHS Web page Department-wide Contract Vehicles.

You can find USCIS opportunities at the DHS Acquisition Planning Forecast System (APFS).

Our latest solicitations are available at FedBizOpps.gov.

Upcoming Topics

June 13: Moving at the Speed of DevOps. 

Representatives from Deloitte will talk about DevOps, an innovative set of software development practices that combines software development (Dev) and information technology operations (Ops) to shorten the systems development life cycle while delivering features, fixes, and updates frequently in close alignment with business objectives. The Deloitte PACE framework offers security, reliability, and compliance in multi-cloud environments.

June 20: Git DevOps.

Developers use Git for version control on codebases in DevOps. This talk will focus on maintaining your configuration data in a version control system, installing the Azure Repos extension for Visual Studio Code, and cloning an existing repository.

June 27: Spark and Kafka.

Founders of Spark, an open-source general-purpose cluster-computing framework, and Kafka, an open-source stream-processing software platform, will talk about the role that these two technologies play at USCIS.
