S. 3903, a bill to require the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to establish procedures for conducting maintenance projects at ports of entry at which the Office of Field Operations conducts certain enforcement and facilitation activitie
As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on March 30, 2022
S. 3903 would direct Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to consult with the General Services Administration (GSA) to establish procedures that would allow CBP to carry out maintenance and repair projects costing less than $300,000 at federally owned ports of entry without direct involvement of the GSA; the cost threshold would be adjusted annually for inflation. The bill also would require CBP to publish those procedures in the Federal Register and to report annually on completed maintenance projects and their costs.
Using information from CBP about the cost of establishing the new procedures and publishing similar reports, CBO estimates that implementing the requirements in the bill would cost $1 million over the 2022‑2027 period; any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
