Commercial Equipment Direct Assistance Program

Lafayette Group provided program management and outreach services for the DHS Commercial Equipment Direct Assistance Program (CEDAP), operated by the National Preparedness Directorate in response to a Congressional mandate.  The program enables emergency responder agencies to acquire specialized commercial equipment through a direct transfer program.  The application process provides smaller jurisdictions and eligible metropolitan areas with the opportunity to acquire much needed equipment, such as detection and sensor devices, law enforcement information sharing software, and communications interoperability systems.  Lafayette Group also supported the working group in charge of maintaining the catalog of eligible equipment by researching the available technologies and assessing their ability to meet the identified needs of law enforcement agencies this program was designed to assist.
