DHS/TSA/PIA-052 Checkpoint Information Management Web Application


The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) performs a wide variety of transportation security functions, including, among others, the physical screening of transportation passengers and transportation sector workers. The traveling public often notices transportation security functions at TSA airport security checkpoints, but they also occur at other locations such as airport gates, airport worker sterile area access points, and national security events. Information regarding incidents that occur at locations where these transportation security functions are performed is typically collected on paper forms and then subsequently entered manually into various reporting systems. To promote efficiency and uniformity in the reporting of incidents, TSA has developed a web application accessible from TSA-issued devices, the Checkpoint Information Management (CIM) Web Application, to permit the electronic submission of incident reports. The application will standardize and automate incident reporting, promote timely and actionable sharing of information, and permit improved trend and pattern analysis for more effective implementation of transportation security measures. Although the intent is to standardize and automate incident reporting across the organization, TSA initially plans to test the Checkpoint Information Management application at a limited number of airports. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is conducted pursuant to the E-Government Act of 2002 because the application database collects personally identifiable information (PII) on members of the public.
