Department of Homeland Security: CBP Officer Overtime (Fiscal Year 2017 Report to Congress)
United States. Department of Homeland Security; U.S. Customs and Border Protection
"I am pleased to submit the following report, 'CBP Officer Overtime,' which has been prepared by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This report was compiled pursuant to the language set forth in House Report 114-668, which accompanies the Fiscal Year 2017 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act (P.L. 115-31). The report provides the methodology for allocating CBP officer overtime resources, as well as funding levels for 2014-2016. Overtime caps and the process for determining official hours of operation also are addressed. The Office of Field Operations Customs Officer Pay Reform Act (COPRA) overtime system is rooted in law (19 U.S.C. § 267) and provides for CBP officers to be paid at two times their basic hourly rate for work in excess of 8 hours. [...] This report addresses the methodology for allocating officer overtime resources. Maximizing employee resources provides the agency with greater flexibility to ensure that there are enough frontline personnel assigned to address peak travel times and increased workload and that ports of entry (POE) have the appropriate number of personnel to maintain CBP's core mission of antiterrorism and border security. This report provides the funding levels for COPRA overtime for FY 2014, 2015, and 2016; the number of officers who reached the overtime cap in those years; and the process for determining and changing official hours at POEs."
