GSA Awards Blanket Purchase Agreements for Construction Management and Consulting Services for Vermont Land Port of Entry Projects
BOSTON – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announced it has awarded two Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA) for Construction Management and Consulting Services for several Land Port of Entry projects along the Vermont border with Canada.
GSA awarded a one-year BPA with four option years for the Highgate Springs Land Port of Entry to APSI Construction Management, a small business. Services to be provided under this award include construction project management, project scheduling, cost estimating and claims analysis. The estimated total value of the BPA over the potential five-year term is $12.5 million dollars.
GSA also awarded a one-year BPA with four option years for the Alburg Springs, Beebe Plain, Norton and Richford Land Ports of Entry to a Contractor Teaming Arrangement consisting of both APSI and CBRE Heery, Inc. They will provide services including construction project management, project scheduling, cost estimating and claims analysis. The estimated total value of the BPA over the potential five-year term is $7 million dollars.
The $19.5 million in contracts awarded by GSA are funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
Vermont Land Port of Entry projects include the construction of new - or renovation of existing - Land Ports of Entry to accommodate the mission of Customs and Border Protection, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
These projects will provide for the long-term safe and efficient flow of current and projected traffic volumes, including the movement of people and goods between the U.S. and Canada.
“We are excited for the opportunity to begin the process to improve these facilities, and the economic prospects these projects will bring to the region,” said GSA’s Region 1 Public Buildings Service Regional Commissioner and Acting Regional Administrator Glenn C. Rotondo. “The projects along the Vermont border will enable our Federal inspection agency partners to better serve travelers entering Vermont and the region.”
Through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, GSA is modernizing Land Ports of Entry along the Canadian and Mexican borders. GSA’s goal is to provide sustainable, climate resilient, superior facilities with low maintenance and operating costs; and which are functional, technologically efficient, and provide a welcoming gateway to the U.S.

GSA’s mission is to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services across government, in support of the Biden-Harris administration’s priorities.
