The Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL) is a DHS framework aimed at experimenting with innovative acquisition techniques across the DHS enterprise. The PIL provides a safe space to test new ideas, share lessons learned, and promote best practices. It fosters cultural changes that promote innovation and managed risk-taking through a continuous feedback cycle. PIL institutionalizes best practices by:
- Testing (Experimenting) – Apply innovative procurement techniques in actual projects and capture customer feedback and lessons-learned; and
- Sharing (Institutionalizing) – Share best practices and sample documents DHS-wide via webinars, intranet portal, and outreach.
