The General Services Administration and the Customs and Border Protection have accepted three new proposals for port of entry infrastructure and technology projects.

The cities of Donna in Texas and Pharr in Texas as well as Red Hook Terminals have passed the evaluation phase of the Donations Acceptance Program and will proceed with the planning and development activities under the program, GSA said Tuesday.

“At GSA, we understand that all of our buildings are an important part of the communities where they are located,” said Norman Dong, commissioner of GSA’s Public Buildings Service.

“That is why we are so excited to be working together with these three municipalities through the Donations Acceptance Program,” Dong added.

The city of Donna seeks to build new inspection facilities and install technologies to help inspect inbound vehicles at the Donna-Rio Bravo Port of Entry while the city of Pharr aims to construct a new cold inspection facility and an agricultural inspection training and development facility at the Pharr POE.

Red Hook Terminals pledged to donate a perforating machine to the Port of Freeport in Texas.
