As part of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public Law 107-296, Congress enacted several liability protections for providers of anti-terrorism technologies. The SAFETY Act provides incentives for the development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies by creating a system of "risk management" and a system of "litigation management." The purpose of the Act is to ensure that the threat of liability does not deter potential manufacturers or Sellers of anti-terrorism technologies from developing and commercializing technologies that could save lives.

For this position at DHS Office of Safety Act Implementation (OSAI), the Program Analyst will support the application process to determine if a private sector offering is a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology. One of the main priorities for OSAI is to efficiently address the increasingly complex applications packages while providing applicants with high quality customer service; ensuring timely responses to inquiries and the completion of evaluations within the congressionally mandated timeline.

  • Coordinate and execute drop off and pick up of OSAI binders with OSAI IT Support and the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA).

  • Work with applicants throughout the pre-application and application processes to facilitate their understanding of the qualifications needed for SAFETY Act protection.

  • Provide stellar customer service to applicants on behalf of OSAI; ensuring high-quality customer service is provided and maintained.

  • Establish and maintain positive communication channels between OSAI, S&T Exec Sec, S&T leadership, and other OSAI stakeholders within and outside of S&T.
