ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). To achieve its goals, DHS announced that it will accept unsolicited proposals from businesses pursuant to the federal contracting rules in the Federal Acquisition Regulations. In the case Xerxe Group Inc. v. United States, the federal circuit sent a not-so-gentle reminder to potential contractors submitting unsolicited proposals to the government that they must "identify and clearly demarcate" restricted data on the title page and on each page of the proposal to protect the information from disclosure. Businesses are encouraged to share their innovative ideas with the DHS to help the United States combat terrorism and increase security.
