DHS/TSA/PIA-041 - TSA Pre-Check Application Program


January 22, 2016. TSA operates its TSA Pre✓® Application Program to perform a security threat assessment on individuals who seek eligibility for expedited screening at participating U.S. airport security checkpoints. This PIA update covers two aspects of the program: 1) TSA will offer the ability to obtain a birth certificate certification through the National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems (NAPHSIS); and 2) TSA will expand TSA Pre✓® Application Program capabilities by entering into agreements with private-sector entities for marketing, enrollment, identity assurance, and criminal records checks. As part of the latter expansion effort, TSA will share personally identifiable information collected by the TSA Pre✓® Application Program with DHS Science & Technology (S&T) Directorate to test the ability of the private sector to perform identity assurance and criminal history assessments.
