HOMELAND SECURITY AWARDS LARGEST WOMEN-OWNED SMALL BUSINESS SET-ASIDE TO EAGLE HILL CONSULTING

Arlington, Va., May 14, 2015 – Eagle Hill Consulting was selected to provide
program management, training, exercise, and risk-based security planning
solutions for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Transportation
Security Administration (TSA). Eagle Hill’s work with TSA will help strengthen security
and reduce risk to the nation’s transportation infrastructure.

The award is

structured as five-year contract with a $30 million ceiling to provide support
services for the Intermodal Security Training & Exercise Program (I-STEP). I-STEP
serves the port and intermodal, aviation, mass transit, freight rail, highway
and motor carrier and pipeline industries. It is the only federal exercise
program focused on the security nexus of the intermodal transportation
environment, and it reduces risk to individual systems along with the nation’s
entire transportation network.

The

selection of Eagle Hill is historic. It is the largest woman-owned small
business set-aside contract ever awarded by DHS.

“Eagle Hill Consulting is well-positioned to tap its depth of

experience and talented team to support the vital security mission of TSA and
I-STEP,” said Melissa Jezior, president and chief executive officer of Eagle
Hill Consulting. “Transportation risks are continuously shifting, and we will work
hand-in-hand with the TSA to deliver strategic management, planning and
training services to help protect the nation’s vast and vital transportation
infrastructure,” Jezior said.

Ultimately, Eagle Hill’s support to TSA and I-STEP will:

·      Strengthen TSA Stakeholder Engagement

and Analysis organizational competencies;

·      Continuously improve the risk

posture of transportation systems serving the nation; and

·      Enhance security capabilities,

build partnerships and gain insights in transportation security.

The contract award signifies Eagle Hill’s continued prominence in

the border security and transportation sectors.  Eagle Hill delivers services under contracts with TSA, U.S.
Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and
the U.S. Coast Guard.
