5 12/21/2013 Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Land Border Integration (LBI) program remains a mature and well-managed program operating within acceptable cost and schedule variances, as it continues in the Support phase. The program demonstrates effective program management practices and continues to strengthen its risk management. The Land Border Optimization Group (LBOG), instituted by LBI, optimizes the investment through continuous analysis of operational performance and constant monitoring and reporting of budget execution. With full FY 2013 funding the program continues to monitor the procurement situation to effectively mitigate the risk of contract delays. An operational analysis was conducted in 2013. LBI continues to maintain technologies deployed at inbound land border vehicle crossings and leveraging and integrating these technologies for inbound pedestrian, outbound pedestrian and vehicle, and Border Patrol checkpoint processing while improving existing primary processing operations. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chief Information Officer (CIO) upgrades the CBP LBI program to a Low Risk investment.
4 07/31/2012 The Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Land Border Integration (LBI) program continues to expand from the successful Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) program. As it currently stands, schedule variance is showing negative on the Federal IT Dashboard due to project completion delays that have now been completed. While LBI has an excellent track record of deploying capabilities on time and within budget; the relatively small Phase 1 activities (Outbound Tier 3, $3.4M project with a 4 month slippage) erroneously provide a negative schedule variance for the overall LBI program. From 2008-2009, LBI successfully deployed a $350M investment under the WHTI on time and within budget. The CIO assesses the CBP LBI program as a Moderately Low Risk investment.
