CBP Commissioner Applauds CBP/FAA Partnership in Oklahoma to Maintain Border Surveillance Systems, Earning Prestigious Award

Release Date: 
June 24, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Acting Commissioner Thomas S. Winkowski applauded the Federal Aviation Administration's Logistics Center (FAALC) for earning the prestigious Oklahoma Federal Executive Board 2013 Public Service Recognition award for their work through an interagency agreement to maintain CBP's border surveillance systems used on our northern and southern borders.

"I congratulate both CBP and the Federal Aviation Administration's Logistics Center on being awarded the Oklahoma Federal Executive Board 2013 Public Service Recognition Award," said Thomas S. Winkowski, Acting CBP Commissioner. "The partnership has served as a tremendous asset to CBP in maintaining our mobile and fixed surveillance systems along our northern and southern borders."

This significant costs savings triggered the CBP Team at FAALC Product Support Division's nomination and selection to receive the Oklahoma Federal Executive Board 2013 Public Service Recognition award. The FAALC earned the award facing a competitive field that included 11 other federal agency teams.

Through the interagency agreement, the FAALC serves as the Primary Inventory Control Authority for maintaining CBPs border surveillance systems, including more than 80 mobile surveillance systems (MSS) and fixed surveillance towers that operate on the U.S. 's northern and southern land borders. The FAALC provides supply chain support, depot maintenance support, engineering and other systems support.

The CBP Team at the FAA's Logistics Center implemented a supply chain management process that ensured the MSSs and fxed-site towers operate with a high level of availability. The interagency agreement utilized FAA's previously existing infrastructure and processes, resulting in a total combined cost avoidance of more than $5 million.
