Transportation Security Administration Logistics Center – Inventory Management

Executive Summary

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) operates three warehouses in Texas, collectively known as the TSA Logistics Center. The warehouses store various types of Government equipment used at airports to screen passengers and baggage. Equipment used at airports, but not specifically used for screening operations, is also stored in the warehouses. As of May 31, 2012, TSA had more than 17,000 items in its warehouse inventory, with an estimated cost of $185.7 million. We performed this audit to determine whether TSA effectively managed the Logistics Center.
