Arlington, VA, April 18, 2018 – Eagle Hill Consulting has received the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) 2018 Small Business Achievement Award. The agency selected Eagle Hill for its outstanding collaborative work with DHS, transportation operators and security partners to build and sustain security preparedness initiatives that protect the nation.

More specifically, Eagle Hill is recognized for its efforts to advance national security resilience, effectiveness and innovation through the Intermodal Security Training and Exercise Program (I-STEP). I-STEP is a federal exercise program focused on security in the nation’s transportation sector. Its mission is to enhance security and reduce risk across the transportation network.

“This award speaks to the creative thinking and strong work ethic of the Eagle Hill team,” says Melissa Jezior, Eagle Hill president and chief executive officer.

“Given the serious national security challenges facing the nation, this award is especially important because it says our work is making a real impact to strengthen our country and protect Americans. We are deeply honored that DHS continues to trust Eagle Hill to help deliver on its mission of safeguarding the homeland. Our team looks forward to the continued partnership with DHS to achieve tangible, important results,” Jezior said.

Since 2011, Eagle Hill’s team of experts has worked alongside DHS as a strategic partner, combining the right tools, methodologies and pragmatic strategies to help solve the agency’s most complex business challenges. The I-STEP contract in 2015 was historic because it was the largest woman-owned small business set-aside contract ever awarded by DHS.

Eagle Hill’s support to DHS and I-STEP has:

  • Strengthened stakeholder engagement and built partnerships
  • Continuously improved the risk posture of transportation systems serving the nation; and
  • Enhanced security capabilities and gained insights into transportation security.

This work and award signals Eagle Hill’s continued prominence in the border security and transportation sectors. Eagle Hill delivers services under contracts with the Transportation Security Agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
