ANSER’S HSSAI to Support Homeland Security as Studies and Analysis FFRDC into 2016

Falls Church, VA (June, 16, 2015)

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has exercised its option to extend the period of performance of the Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute (HSSAI) through July 31, 2016. HSSAI operates under an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract vehicle between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and ANSER (Analytic Services Inc.).

Originally chartered by Congress as the Homeland Security Institute (HSI) in 2004 with the establishment of DHS, the not-for-profit institute became HSSAI in 2009. As an FFRDC, HSSAI provides independent analyses, free from conflict of interest, to the extended homeland security enterprise. Over the last 11 years, HSSAI has completed more than 650 studies and related analyses for DHS and other agencies.

HSSAI provides the federal government with continuity and currency in DHS-specific areas of expertise. As a trusted agent, HSSAI maintains in-depth knowledge of DHS programs and operations. While dedicated to supporting every major staff function and component within the DHS, it also supports the homeland security needs of other organizations such as the Departments of Defense, Education, Interior, Health and Human Services, and State.

HSSAI Director Phil Anderson said “We are excited about continuing our long standing support to DHS and others across the homeland security enterprise, directly informing key decisions at every level.”
