Coast Guard seeks port security consultants

$6 million in funding to be used to assess port security, make security improvements


With refreshed coiffeurs holding $6 million grant funding slated for port security improvement around the Delaware River and Bay, the U.S. Coast Guard is looking for a few good private security consultants adept in port environments.

As part of the funding, the USCG is working with the Area Maritime Security Committee to solicit private sector security consultants to aid in providing a comprehensive security/vulnerabilities assessment for the Delaware Bay port region. The selected consultant will be involved in a thorough review of the security, identifying gaps and vulnerabilities, and will also be involved in planning of security enhancements for the port region.
