DHS halts major procurement

The Homeland Security Department has put on hold the $5 billion, five-year Security Planning and Integrated Resources for Information Technology procurement.

The Spirit acquisition was halved in February. On May 7, the Coast Guard contracting office handling Spirit suspended the acquisition.

"There was a feeling that Spirit was redundant in combination with other projects," said consultant Jim Flyzik.

DHS officials were not immediately available to discuss reasons for the delay.
