SUBJECT: SOUTH AFRICA: Request Funding Re-obligation

1. Summary: This is a request for approval for the use of funding,
previously obligated for the immigration and Border Patrol, under
obligation code: 1911461022-0584-0584402002-2721-2156-142204. The
re-obligated funds will be used for narcotics detection by the U.S.
Customs and Border Protection Service (CBP). CBP is requesting INL
assistance to purchase Narcotic Test Kits for the SARS. End
Summary
2. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) assists the South
African Revenue Service (SARS) in Capacity Building under the World
Customs Organizations (WCO) Framework of Standards. CBP was
instrumental in the training and development of the SARS Customs
Border Control Unit. This team is modeled after the CBP
Antiterrorism Contraband Enforcement Team, (ATCET), and has had
considerable success since its inception in 2007
3. In the Port of Durban the CBP Container Security Initiative
works with SARS to identify suspect shipments containing terrorist
instruments, weapons of mass destruction, narcotics and other
contraband destined for the United States. There are two CBP
Officers and a TDY ICE Special Agent located in the port.
4. The kits will help SARS to identify organizations involved in
Transnational Crimes. The kits will provide a presumptive drug test
for suspicious substances attempting to enter or transit through
South Africa. CBP will assist SARS in developing protocols for
security and storage of the kits, and a protocol for activating the
use of the drug test kits. Examples: canine alert, supervisory
approval, documentation of findings. Train-the-Trainer for
sustainability of proficiency.


5. Below is the name of the U.S. supplier, the requested items and
the cost. This is an estimated cost because the list does not
include sales tax and shipping costs. The CBP representatives have
selected a single source supplier because they have an existing
business relationship with this company and they are satisfied with
the performance of the product.
If you have any further questions you may contact Madeline
Seidenstricker at +27124314173 or SeidenstrickerMQ@state.gov.
