Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends to procure two million rounds per year of 12 Gauge slug shotgun “standard” ammunition for use by its agents and other DHS components, plus another two million rounds per year of the “reduced recoil” version of the same ammunition.
“This ammunition will be provided to all Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers and agents and will be used throughout the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and other US Territories and possessions,” explains a presolicitation notice issued by CBP on September 18.
CBP intends to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) on or about October 31 for a full and open competition to win an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, says the notice.
