CBP expands public-private partnerships with new Reimbursable Services Program selections

Release Date
Wed, 08/09/2023

WASHINGTON – U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced today 39 tentative selections to continue the expansion of its public-private partnership for expanded services from incoming commercial and cargo traffic, as well as international traveler arrivals.

The Reimbursable Services Program allows private sector and state and local governments to reimburse the agency for additional inspection services in ports of entry that may be remote or work late hours to accommodate for growing demand.

CBP reaches agreements under the program to accommodate services following requests from private sector and government partners, who then reimburse CBP for overtime and support services. Under the reimbursable services agreement, mandatory services such as customs, agricultural processing, border security services, immigration inspections and support services at ports of entry can be expanded.

“CBP is able to accommodate the unforeseen needs of our partners, and better serve them, through the Reimbursable Services Program while fulfilling our security mission,” said Acting Executive Assistant Commissioner Diane J. Sabatino of CBP’s Office of Field Operations. “CBP contributes to American economic prosperity by these public-private partnerships and our commitment to facilitate legitimate travel and trade.”

The Reimbursable Services Program has grown since it began in 2013 to include participation by 375 private sector entities and state and local governments. CBP provides more than 1.25 million additional processing hours at the request of the participating entities with these agreements. These additional hours represent the processing of for more than 18.2 million travelers and more than 2.1 million personal and commercial vehicles.

The statute imposes several limitations at CBP-serviced airports. Reimbursable services are limited to overtime costs and support services for airports with 100,000 or more arriving international passengers annually. Airports with fewer than 100,000 arriving international passengers annually may offset CBP for the salaries and expenses of not more than five full-time equivalent CBP officers. Reimbursable services agreements will not replace existing services.

CBP used a rigorous, multi-layered process to evaluate proposals and ensure compatibility with CBP’s mission priorities.

The reimbursable services authority is a key component of CBP’s Resource Optimization Strategy and will allow CBP to provide new or expanded services at domestic ports of entry reimbursed by the partner entity.
