DHS Releases Draft RFP for $1B SW Virtual Border Fence Contract

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has published a draft request for proposals for a 10-year contract, valued at more than $1 billion, to build a virtual fence on the U.S. southwest border with Mexico.

The draft, posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, calls for integrated fixed tower systems along Arizona’s border to assist Border Patrol agents. The systems will consist of surveillance equipment, including cameras and radars, power generation and communications equipment and equipment used for command and control.

The systems must be able to adapt to Arizona’s climate, working in temperatures up to 120 degrees, winds of up to 15 miles per hour and lightning.
