his report is the result of a June 2011 letter from Congressman John L. Mica, U.S. House of Representatives, requesting that we provide updated information on our 2008 report, Transportation Security Administration’s National Deployment Force. The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) National Deployment Force officers support airport screening operations during emergencies, seasonal demands, severe weather conditions, or increased passenger activity equiring additional screening personnel above those normally available to airports. In addition, officers may support other TSA functions as described in table 1 of our report.
Consistent with CDC guidance, most Office of Inspector General employees are currently serving the American people remotely. We are determined to keep interruptions to our operations to a minimum, and we appreciate your patience during this time.
