    TSA seeks to establish enrollment sites and implement a mobile 
enrollment capability to support the TSA Pre[check]TM 
Application Program. Those seeking TSA Pre[check]TM 
expedited screening via the TSA Pre[check]TM Application 
Program will have the option to apply online or in-person by submitting 
biographic information. Applicants then will submit biometric data 
(e.g., fingerprints) in-person at an enrollment center and pay the fee 
to TSA's contracted vendor. TSA also invites all TSA 
Pre[check]TM applicants to complete an optional survey to 
gather information on the applicants' overall customer satisfaction 
with the service received at the enrollment center. The optional survey 
will be administered at the end of the in-person enrollment service.
    Eligibility for TSA Pre[check]TM is within the sole 
discretion of TSA, which will notify applicants who are denied 
eligibility in writing of the reasons for the denial. If initially 
deemed ineligible, applicants will have an opportunity to correct cases 
of misidentification or inaccurate criminal or immigration records. 
Consistent with 28 CFR 50.12 in cases involving criminal records, and 
before making a final eligibility decision, TSA will advise the 
applicant that the FBI criminal record discloses information that would 
disqualify him or her from the TSA Pre[check]TM Application 
Program.
    Within 60 days after being advised that the criminal record 
received from the FBI discloses a disqualifying criminal offense, the 
applicant must notify TSA in writing of his or her intent to correct 
any information he or she believes to be inaccurate. The applicant must 
provide a certified revised record, or the appropriate court must 
forward a certified true copy of the information, prior to TSA 
approving eligibility of the applicant for TSA Pre[check]TM. 
With respect to citizenship and/or immigration records, within 60 days 
after being advised that the citizenship or immigration records 
indicate that the applicant is ineligible for TSA 
Pre[check]TM, the applicant must notify TSA in writing of 
his or her intent to correct any information believed to be inaccurate. 
TSA will review any information submitted and make a final decision. If 
neither notification nor a corrected record is received by TSA, TSA may 
make a final determination to deny eligibility. Individuals who TSA 
determines are ineligible for the TSA Pre[check]TM 
Application Program will continue to be screened at airport security 
checkpoints according to TSA standard screening protocols.
    TSA Pre[check]TM will enhance aviation security by 
permitting TSA to better focus its limited security resources on 
passengers who are more likely to pose a threat to civil aviation, 
while also facilitating and improving the commercial aviation travel 
experience for the public. Travelers who choose not to enroll in this

of their choice; they will be processed through normal TSA screening 
before entering the sterile areas of airports. TSA also retains the 
authority to perform random screening on TSA Pre[check]TM 
members and any other travelers authorized for expedited physical 
screening.

based on a five-year projection.
