Three Step Approach:
Keep it Simple and Make it Easy

      And Relay Conservative Market Potential


          Establish Strategic Partnerships

A new model for Commercialization…
 1. Development of Operational Requirements Document (ORD)
 2. Assess addressable market(s)
 3. Publish ORD and market assessment on public DHS web portal, soliciting
    interest from potential partners
 4. Execute no-cost agreement (streamlined CRADA) with multiple Private
    Sector entities, transferring technology (if necessary)
 5. Develop supporting grants and standards as necessary
 6. Assess T&E after product is developed
 7. New Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) product marketed by Private Sector
    with DHS support

          Differences from the Acquisition model:
           Primary criteria for partner selection is market penetration, agility,
            and performance/price ratio
           Product development is not funded by DHS
           Government involvement is limited to inherently governmental
            functions (e.g., Grants and Standards)

ORD: Operational Requirements Document
 What: ORDs provide a clear definition and articulation of a given
   problem.
 How: Training materials have been developed to assist drafting an
   ORD.
    • Developing Operational Requirements, 194pp. Available online:
       http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/Developing_Operational_Requirements_Guides.pdf

 When: For Use in Acquisition, Procurement, Commercialization
  and Outreach Programs –Any situation that dictates detailed
  requirements ( e.g. RFQ, BAA, RFP, RFI, etc.)
 Why: It‟s cost-effective and efficient for both DHS and all of its
  stakeholders.

Why SECURE Program
 •Multi-Use
      Provides private sector, in an open and transparent way, with what they need most - -
     Business Opportunities
      Provides assurance to DHS, First Responders and private sector users (like CI/KR)
     that products/services perform as prescribed (and provides vehicle for First Responders,
     CI/KR owners and operators to voice their requirements)
      Augments the value of the SAFETY Act

 •Saves Money
      Private Sector uses its own resources to develop products and services to the benefit
     of the taxpayer and the Federal Government

 •Creates Jobs
      Detailed articulation of requirements coupled with funded large, potential available
     markets yield OPPORTUNITY that yields Job Creation (it‟s better to teach a person to
     fish than to give them a fish)
      Enables small firms with innovative technologies to partner with larger firms, VCs and
     angel investors because of the credibility of having government show detailed
     requirements with associated market potential (instead of just their own business plans).

 •Efficient Use of Government Funds
      Articulating detailed requirements saves time and money. It is better for Government to
     spend funds to procure products or services that are available for sale and rigorously
     tested compared to spending money and time to develop new solutions for ill-defined
     problems.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security: Science and Technology Directorate’s
Chief Commercialization Officer

Dr. Cellucci accepted a five-year appointment from the Department of Homeland Security in August 2007 as the Federal
Government’s first Chief Commercialization Officer (CCO). He is responsible for initiatives that identify, evaluate and
commercialize technology for the specific goal of rapidly developing and deploying products and services that meet the
specific operational requirements of the Department of Homeland Security’s Operating Components and other DHS
stakeholders such as First Responders and Critical Infrastructure/Key Resources owners and operators. Cellucci has
also developed and continues to drive the implementation of DHS-S&T’s outreach with the private sector to establish
and foster mutually beneficial working relationships to facilitate cost-effective and efficient product/service development
efforts. His efforts led to the establishment of the DHS-S&T Commercialization Office in October 2008. The Commercialization
Office is responsible for four major activities; a requirements development initiative for all DHS stakeholders, the development
and implementation of a commercialization process for DHS, development and execution of private sector partnership
programs such as SECURE and leading the private sector outreach for the S&T directorate.

Since his appointment, he has published three comprehensive guides [Requirements Development Guide (April 2008), Developing Operational Requirements (May
2008), and Developing Operational Requirements, Version 2 (November 2008)] dealing with the development of operational requirements, developed and implemented a
commercialization model for the entire department and established the SECURE Program—an innovative public-private partnership to cost-effectively and efficiently
develop products and services for DHS’s Operating Components and other DHS stakeholders. In addition, he has written over 25 articles and a compilation of works
[Harnessing the Valuable Experiences and Resources of the Private Sector for the Public Good, (February 2009)] geared toward the private sector to inform the public of
new opportunities and ways to work with DHS. Cellucci has received recognition for his outreach efforts and engagement with the small and disadvantaged business
communities who learn about potential business opportunities and avenues to provide DHS with critical technologies and products to help secure America.
Cellucci is an accomplished entrepreneur, seasoned senior executive and Board member possessing extensive corporate and VC experience across a number of
worldwide industries. Profitably growing high technology firms at the start-up, mid-range and large corporate level has been his trademark. He has authored or co-
authored over 139 articles on Requirements development, Commercialization, Nanotechnology, Laser physics, Photonics, Environmental disturbance control, MEMS test
and measurement, and Mistake-proofing enterprise software. He has also held the rank of Lecturer or Professor at institutions like Princeton University, University of
Pennsylvania and Camden Community College. Cellucci also co-authored ANSI Standard Z136.5 “The Safe Use of Lasers in Educational Institutions”. Dr. Cellucci is
also a commissioned Admiral and Commander of a Squadron in Texas responsible for civil defense and has been a first responder for over twenty years.
As a result of his consistent achievement in the commercialization of technologies, Cellucci has received numerous awards and citations from industry, government and
business. In addition, he has significant experience interacting with high ranking members of the United States government—including the White House, US Senate and
US House of Representatives—having provided executive briefs to three Presidents of the United States and ranking members of Congress. Cellucci represents DHS as
the first Federal Government member on the U.S. Council on Competitiveness.

Cellucci earned a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania, an MBA from Rutgers University and a BS in Chemistry from Fordham University. He
has also attended and lectured at executive programs at the Harvard Business School, MIT Sloan School, Kellogg School and others. Dr. Cellucci is regarded as an
authority in rapid time-to-market new product development and is regularly asked to serve as keynote speaker at both business and technical events.
