DHS/TSA/PIA-030 - Access to Sensitive Security Information in Contract Solicitations (SSI)

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) conducts security threat assessments on individuals and companies that seek access to Sensitive Security Information (SSI) necessary to prepare a proposal in the pre-award phase of contracting with TSA. SSI is a form of unclassified information that, if publicly released, would be detrimental to transportation security. Pursuant to the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), TSA also enters Other Transaction Agreements (OTA), procurement contracts, and other agreements with various public and private entities in furtherance of its security mission, and receives submissions for the Qualified Products List (QPL). In certain cases, TSA may need to conduct security threat assessments (STA) on individuals and entities that seek access to SSI necessary to prepare a proposal or submission in response to these situations. TSA is updating this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to address the collection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from members of the public before granting access to SSI and to clarify the records retention.
