"Since its inception, CCSi has partnered with DHS and therefore has a lot of intellectual capital that will benefit the Department," said Suzanne Petrie Liscouski, CCSi's vice president for Homeland Security. "Over the past seven years, our organizations have worked together and matured to support a common vision. In regard to being positioned in the full and open category on EAGLE II, Liscouski feels, "It's gratifying as we will leverage our unique perspective to build new partnerships with niche businesses in order to fully support the Department and its components."

Liscouski hones her focus on homeland security at Rockville contractor Superior Civilian Service Medal recipient was early to the sector
Suzanne Petrie Liscouski was in the Pentagon that Sept. 11 when the jetliner struck.
"A plane flying into a building is not a sound you want to hear," said Liscouski, who recently was named director of homeland security for Creative Computing Solutions. The Rockville government contractor provides program and project management services, security and information assurance and enterprise systems engineering.
"I actually thought it was a bomb at first," she said.
Shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks, Liscouski got in on the ground floor of the burgeoning homeland security sector. As director for North American affairs in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, International Security Affairs, she joined a homeland security task force and was involved in the early policy and planning stages of the U.S. Northern Command. That program consolidated existing homeland defense and civil support missions previously under various military branches.
In 2004, Liscouski joined the Department of Homeland Security, which had formed two years earlier, as director for Latin America. She was responsible for strategy, policy creation, federal and international coordination of security, and immigration policy within North America, Central and South America and the Caribbean, along with management of U.S.-Mexico border issues.
"It was one of the most intriguing jobs I've had," she said. "There was no manual on how to do things. It was uncharted territory."
Growing up in Connecticut in a family of military veterans, Liscouski was attracted to foreign affairs. She earned a bachelor's in International Affairs from Sweet Briar College in Virginia and a master's in foreign and defense policy from American University in Washington, D.C.
Her first job after grad school was as an intelligence analyst for the Department of the Army, primarily focusing on the Andean Ridge countries in South America. She did such good work there that she received the Superior Civilian Service Medal in 1996, the Army's "third highest" award for employees, according to that branch.
More awards followed, and within 14 years of graduating from Sweet Briar, Liscouski was called on to give the commencement address in 2005.
Liscouski's "life experiences and career choices were germane as they moved into the next phase of their lives."
Liscouski's other government positions included Mexico director in the White House Drug Policy Office and director for Latin American programs at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. She also worked in the private sector as business development director, international and homeland security accounts, at Northern Virginia contractor TASC.
