In accordance with the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), the decision to award a private security screening contract is at the discretion of the TSA Assistant Secretary. If a requesting airport is seeking to become its own provider of private security screening services, please indicate this in Section 1.18 of the application. Note, however, that airports interested in providing their own private security screening services must qualify according to criteria determined by the TSA Office of Acquisition.

    1) A separate application must be submitted for each individual airport location.

    2) An authorized representative of the airport owner must execute the application.

    3) The application requisite documentation must be completed in full to be considered for

    acceptance.

    4) The application must have Section: REQUIRED INFORMATION (line items 1.0 1.18)

    completed in order for TSA to accept the application. Incomplete applications will delay the

    process.

    5) The applicant’s provision of information requested in Section: ADDITIONAL OPTIONAL

    INFORMATION may assist TSA in the scheduling of private screening contract awards and

    implementations.

    6) The application must be received at TSA Office of Screening Partnership Program (OSPP).

    7) Please provide a copy of your application to the Federal Security Director at your airport.

    8) If your application includes Sensitive Security Information or confidential business information,
