Over the past several months, the OS AI team has received multiple inquiries from companies focused on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) inquiring and researching 8(a) STARS II and STARS III tasks that are new and stand to be re-competed and/or awarded at the agency over the next 12-18 months.  

Included here we share two dozen potential recompete opportunities that are drawing the most interest and/or inquiries across DHS, as well as some of the DHS focused 8(a) STARS III Prime consulting firms that are being increasingly viewed as a top partner or competitor options (and/or potential employers).   

The list of contract opportunities covers everything from Case Management and Data Engineering Support Services to Disaster Analytics, SharePoint Dev support, Portfolio Management, and Cybersecurity support.

Do know that some of these potential requirements will NOT end up being recompeted in 2023 for any number of reasons (e.g., contract consolidation, extension, cancellation, etc), but this list, which includes several requirements that will not expire until 2024, can serve as a great foundation as you build out your pipeline and start to have teaming discussions.   

The set of expiring contracts and potential recompetes we have received the most inquiries and interest about include:
