ABSTRACT
The article looks at the report issued by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on a new surveillance technology plan aimed at improving border security in Arizona. According to the GAO, the life-cycle cost estimate by the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for the plan may not be realistic and is not adequate. GAO also argues that reliable cost estimates are essential to assessing the contingency funding needed to address risks in implementing the plan.
