Can you supply 42,000 pairs of men's briefs?  If so, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is looking for you, and U.S. taxpayers will foot the bill.  But not to worry - the undies aren't even for U.S. citizens.

In a recent post on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the DHS has solicited for bids for a large lot of men's underwear;  42,000 pairs to be exact.

Specifically, the DHS outlines exactly what it needs in the post:

The DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requires the following items, Purchase Description Determined by Line Item, to the following: 

    • LI 001: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: Medium Per Dozen, 600, DZ;
    • LI 002: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: Large Per Dozen, 600, DZ;
    • LI 003: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: X-Large Per Dozen, 600, DZ;
    • LI 004: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 2X-Large Per Dozen, 400, DZ;
    • LI 005: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 3X-Large Per Dozen, 400, DZ;
    • LI 006: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 4X-Large Per Dozen, 400, DZ;
    • LI 007: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 5X-Large Per Dozen, 300, DZ;
    • LI 008: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 6X-Large Per Dozen, 200, DZ;

Although the request seems like a ludicrous waste of tax dollars, DHS' Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stated to Breitbart News, "This [request for quote] is a normal solicitation for routinely procured items needed at ICE-owned detention facilities around the country,” an ICE spokesperson explained. “At ICE-owned detention facilities, the agency is required to provide basic necessities in order to feed and clothe detained aliens.”

ICE is required to supply basic necessities, like men's underwear, to all those being held at their facilities. Contracted locations by ICE roll their personal hygiene items into their contracted amount, which is usually charged on a per bed, per day rate.

According to the DHS, once the above bid is won, and fulfilled, the underwear will end up at it's final stop: El Paso, Texas, and be distributed accordingly.
