BGOV: USACE Eyes Construction Service Providers for Potential $2B DHS Border Program - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Thursday a prequalification of sources for the Department of Homeland Security‘s prospective $1.8 billion Border Infrastructure Program, Bloomberg Government reported Monday.

Potential projects under the USACE solicitation can cover border fencing, gates and lights; access and patrol roads; drainage and miscellaneous modifications; levee walls and other alterations and repairs, the report said.

DHS’ Customs and Border Protection awarded in August 2017 up to $500,000 each to four firms for concrete wall prototype development. It selected in September 2017 four additional companies with contract awards up to $500,000 each to develop border prototypes using materials other than concrete.

CBP obligated up to $1.6 million in total to the August awardees and a cumulative of $1.7 million to the September awardees. It also identified potentially $300 million in follow-on construction funds for each procurement, BGOV noted.

President Trump requested $1.6 billion border construction funds under DHS’ fiscal 2019 appropriations bill, which passed the Senate on June 21.

CBP was previously provided $1.57 billion in fiscal 2018 procurement, construction and improvement funds that the agency used on tasks similar to work under USACE’s current solicitation.
