Sen. Claire McCaskill Asks CBP for Info on $297M Staff Hiring Support Contract

Sen. Claire McCaskill, ranking member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, has asked the Customs and Border Protection to provide information about a potential five-year, $297 million contract awarded to Accenture for recruitment support services.

The contract calls for Accenture’s federal services business to recruit and employ 5,000 border patrol agents, 2,000 customs officers and 500 air and marine interdiction employees, McCaskill wrote in a Wednesday letter to Kevin McAleenan, CBP acting commissioner.

She noted that CBP would need to spend approximately $40,000 for each hire under the contract.

McCaskill asked the agency to submit the final contract document and respond to several questions about the office of human resources management’s capacity to recruit additional staff for CBP; per capita cost for new law enforcement officers; ways to fund the contract; and other recruitment support contracts the agency holds.

CBP has until Jan. 24 to submit information in response to the senator’s letter.
