Larry Allen, president of Allen Federal Business Partners, discusses the vacancies at the Department of Homeland Security and the difficulties it presents to not only the agency, but contracting partners as well.


 The number of vacancies at the Department of Homeland Security is raising concern for people in the agency, as well as contractors working with it. Larry Allen, president of Allen Federal Business Partners, says that the rapid amount of turnover at DHS means not much can happen on the business side of operations.   “Simply put, if there are a lot of vacancies, things don’t move very fast in terms of the pace of business. Not to say that there aren’t great people in acting capacities in DHS, because there are lots of good acting people… Things aren’t getting done as quickly as they could be,” Allen tells Government Matters. “There are things that are getting done that are ‘Hit your marks,’ day-in and day-out business. In terms of those larger, strategic level acquisitions, those larger projects, they are not moving ahead as quickly as they otherwise might.”
