CBP Selects Leidos, Rapiscan, Smiths Detection for $480M Border Inspection Tech IDIQ

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), Rapiscan Systems and Smiths Detection have won spots on a potential $480 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle to supply X-ray scanner systems to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency for use in large conveyance inspection at border crossings.

CBP announced the Multi-Energy Portal contract award to the three companies in separate notices posted March 1 on SAM .gov.

The multiple-award IDIQ agreement contains a five-year ordering period and 10 years of maintenance work, according to the MEP request for proposals.

MEP scanning technology is intended to help border patrol agents detect contraband items in vehicles at the point of entry as part of the agency’s Non-Intrusive Inspection program.
