ABSTRACT

CBP Does Not Have a Comprehensive Strategy for Meeting Its LS-NII Needs   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) does not have a comprehensive strategy for meeting its Large-Scale Non-Intrusive Inspection (LS-NII) equipment needs at all CBP locations. Instead, CBP uses multiple plans, such as its Multi-Year Investment and Management Plan, and individual acquisition plans for each type of LS-NII equipment it may purchase. At times, these acquisition plans contained conflicting information and did not align with the program's approved lifecycle cost estimate. This occurred because DHS and CBP acquisition officials did not provide effective oversight of CBP's fragmented acquisition planning efforts and did not confirm acquisition plans aligned with LS-NII program objectives. Without improvements, CBP cannot ensure that its multi-million dollar investments in LS-NII technology and equipment will help the component fulfill its mission of protecting U.S. borders."
