CBP announces additional public-private partnerships for the Reimbursable Services Program

WASHINGTON — U.S. Customs and Border Protection today announced the continued expansion of its public-private partnership which allows for the reimbursement of additional travel and trade inspection services at ports and airports. 

CBP reaches agreements with private stakeholders and governments who reimburse CBP for overtime and additional support services. Under the reimbursable services agreement agricultural processing, as well as immigration and trade inspections at ports of entry can be expanded to accommodate for remote locations or late hours. 

“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.”

These public-private partnerships will allow approved private sector and state and local government entities to reimburse CBP for expanded services for incoming commercial and cargo traffic and international traveler arrivals in Alabama; Alaska; Arizona; Arkansas; California; Colorado; Connecticut; Delaware; Florida; Georgia; Hawaii; Idaho; Illinois; Indiana; Kansas; Kentucky; Louisiana; Maine; Maryland; Massachusetts; Michigan; Minnesota; Mississippi; Missouri; Nebraska; Nevada; New Jersey; New York; North Carolina; Ohio; Oregon; Pennsylvania; Puerto Rico; Rhode Island; Tennessee; Texas; Utah; Virginia; and Washington.

Since the Reimbursable Services Program began in 2013, CBP has expanded it to include 375 stakeholders. The program has provided more than 1.34 million additional processing hours at the request of CBP’s partners—accounting for the processing of more than 19.2 million travelers and more than 2.1 million personal and commercial vehicles. 

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.
