Report: Accenture to Help CBP Employ 5K Border Patrol Agents Under $297M Contract

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has won a potential five-year, $297 million contract to help the Customs and Border Protection recruit and employ 5,000 border patrol agents, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

CBP received five bids for the contract that also covers the recruitment of 2,000 customs officers and 500 employees for the agency’s office of air and marine operations, federal contract records revealed.

Accenture will oversee job postings and other aspects of the hiring process and will get a contract payment worth $42.6 million within the first year.

The company will also oversee a public education campaign related to border patrol and customs jobs and a recruitment program that seeks to promote CBP’s law enforcement career opportunities in support of the agency’s internal hiring initiatives, according to the contracting documents.

The contract awarded in November is part of an executive order President Donald Trump signed in January that calls for CBP to hire 5,000 additional agents, the report added.
