DHS’ H-60 Helicopter Programs (Revised)

Executive Summary

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has 62 H-60 helicopters operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the United States Coast Guard (USCG), both of which are converting the helicopters to add about 15 years of operational life. These conversions include repairing the airframes as well as installing updated equipment. We performed this audit to determine whether DHS, CBP, and the USCG have efficiently acquired, converted, and modified these helicopters.
