TSA Releases Performance Report On Contract Screeners At Five U.S. Airports

Rear Adm. David M. Stone, Acting Administrator

for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), today, April 22, released the executive summary of a commissioned report that compares the agency’s federal airport screeners with privately contracted screeners working in five test−bed airports. The PP5, as they are known, include San Francisco International Airport (SFO); Kansas City International Airport (MCI); Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) in New York;

Jackson Hole Airport (JAC), Jackson Hole, WY; and Tupelo (MS) Regional Airport (TUP). While the report was not intended to address the future of either the federal or private screener model, it will provide important data for TSA as the agency develops the program in which individual airports can choose between the two. BearingPoint, the report’s author, compared performance of the PP5 private screeners with TSA’s federal screeners. Full Story
