GAO to Review CBP’s Arizona Border Surveillance Tech Programs

Border PatrolThe Government Accountability Office is set to review programs under the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Arizona Border Surveillance Technology Plan to assess CBP’s implementation of GAO’s recommendations.

CBP kicked off the deployment of technology for three border surveillance programs this month following recommendation from GAO that an independent entity validate CBP’s schedules and cost estimates, GAO said Tuesday.

CBP submitted its schedules for two programs under the plan to GAO in May and the government watchdog wants to determine how CBP responded to its recommendations.

GAO previously identified further opportunities that it said CBP could take to boost oversight of its border surveillance technology plan and related programs in separate reports released in March 2014 and April 2015.
