Transportation Security Administration’s Screening Partnership Program

Executive Summary

As of January 2013, 16 airports were participating in the Screening Partnership Program. Under the program, an airport operator may apply to use a private company to screen passengers and baggage rather than use Federal Government screening personnel. TSA reviews and approves applications to participate, awards contracts to private screening companies, and oversees the private screening workforce. We performed this audit to determine whether TSA administered the Screening Partnership Program in accordance with Federal regulations.
