DHS CBP Awards FTC New Prime Contract

In December 2014, FTC was awarded a two-year Prime Contract award with the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This is FTC’s second prime contract supporting DHS CBP in which FTC provides liaison services for the International Trade Data System (ITDS) in support of Partner Government Agencies (PGAs), related to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). The ACE is one of the larger business process and technology transformation investments undertaken by a Federal Government agency. The ACE Business Office (ABO) provides Program Management support to ensure ACE is developed and maintained aligned with Congressional directives. The ABO is the lead business authority for ACE stakeholders. ACE stakeholders are the CBP workforce, other government agencies, Congress, the trade community, and the public.
