As part of the follow-up to Management Alert – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s San Pedro Service Processing Center, San Pedro, California, December 11, 2014, we obtained and analyzed additional information to determine ICE’s long-term plan for, and how much it spent on, the facility. Although U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is taking action to repair the safety issues at the San Pedro facility identified in our Management Alert, we have concerns regarding ICE’s process to renovate this facility. ICE did not develop a long-term plan for the facility and renovated a portion of the first floor by performing several small projects. Including the safety repairs, ICE will have spent $6 million on a mostly unused and unoccupied facility.
