While the 2,000 additional officers funded by the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 will bring significant support to our mission to secure and facilitate trade and travel through our Nation’s POEs, as we noted above, the most recent results of the Workload Staffing Model show a need for 2,107 additional CBPOs and 631 CBPASs through FY 2017. Even with the growth in international travel and trade, this current need reflects a reduction of 517 CBPOs and 92 CBPASs from FY 2015 results (2,624 and 723 respectively). This reduction is primarily due to CBP’s continued focus on transforming all facets of OFO operations to increase productivity while reducing our reliance on staffing resources.
