US Department of Homeland Security Budget Proposal for FY2018

US Department of Homeland Security Budget Proposal for FY2018

The first budget under the Trump administration, which includes the fiscal year 2018 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budget request highlighted within this research service, has been published. The DHS request is notably higher than that of 2017, and it may encounter opposition from both sides of the political aisle. The study details the agencies that offer the best opportunities for companies trying to enter the homeland security market. It includes market drivers and restraints that shed light on some budget numbers and the importance being placed on certain projects and programs. The research service also assists in understanding the government’s focus and the services it is likely require in future.

Research Scope:

This research service examines President Trump’s DHS budget request for 2018. It highlights some of the agencies that offer the best opportunities for growth and penetration into the DHS market. Cited funding data reflects only those funds assigned for discretionary spending and does not include mandatory fees. All years in this document refer to government fiscal years and not calendar years. Market share and competitive analysis for this study are based on the government contract obligations distributed in 2016. The base year is 2016 as it was the last year complete contract data was published. Over 240 companies received contract obligations of more than $10 million from the DHS in 2016; therefore, a list of “other” companies is not included in this study. The competitive analysis focuses on the overall top 10 companies for DHS, and it highlights the top 5 for each fully detailed agency or division. The budget request is subject to variances and changes until Congress actually passes the bill enacting the budget. Several DHS agencies will not be reviewed in detail because most of their discretionary spending is dedicated to salaries and operating expenses (for example, most of FEMA’s expenditure is for disaster relief, which is not allocated until a catastrophic event occurs). On the other hand, any significant findings associated with the agencies not fully reviewed are discussed under the key findings portion of the study.

Questions answered by this study include the following:

• How has the DHS budget changed from 2017 to 2018?
• In relation to the 2018 funding request, which DHS agencies offer the most appealing opportunities for growth?
• What are some of the programs for which DHS agencies have requested funding?
• Which companies are capturing the largest overall market share?
• Will DHS spending rise or fall over the next 4 years?
• What type of companies are obtaining the most profitable contracts awarded by the DHS?
