2019 Fed 100

Federal 100: Niki Lane

 

Name: Niki Lane
Title: CDM Program Office Acquisition Lead
Agency: Department of Homeland Security

CDM’s procurement guru. Large-scale acquisitions are nothing new to Lane; her previous experience includes helping to manage the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program (where she secured $26 million in savings in a single year). At the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program Office, Lane has tackled new levels of governmentwide complexity. In 2018, she led CDM’s successful shift to the Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense task orders, a dedicated special item number on Schedule 70 and the wind-down of the CDM blanket purchase agreement. She also ran the CDM Approved Products List, which now includes some 163,000 vetted products for agency purchase.
