Description
 
Transportation systems and facilities are vulnerable and difficult to secure given their size, easy accessibility, large number of potential targets, and proximity to urban areas. The federal government has taken steps to ensure that transportation workers, particularly those who transport hazardous materials or seek unescorted access to secure areas of federally regulated maritime or aviation facilities, are properly vetted to identify whether they pose a security risk. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) Transportation Security Admin.'s (TSA) Transportation Threat Assessment and Credentialing (TTAC) office is responsible for conducting background checks -- known as security threat assessments -- for various screening and credentialing programs established for maritime, surface, and aviation transportation workers. TTAC initiated the TTAC Infrastructure Modernization (TIM) program in 2008 to consolidate and standardize TSA's current screening and credentialing systems to better serve transportation worker populations, increase efficiencies, and reduce duplication. This report addresses how the TIM program is being implemented to leverage and enhance existing DHS screening and credentialing capabilities in accordance with DHS policy and acquisition directive and guidance. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
