DHS/TSA/PIA-043 - Travel Protocol Office Program


March 26, 2014. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) established the Travel Protocol Office (TPO) to support and facilitate the movement of eligible travelers whose presence at a security screening checkpoint may distract other travelers and/or reduce the efficiency of the screening process. TSA plans to collect limited Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on these individuals in order to facilitate airport transit and to conduct security screening operations.  The TPO Program applies to commercial airports within the continental United States and its territories.  Because this program entails collecting information about members of the public in identifiable form, the E-Government Act of 2002 requires that TSA conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment.
