60-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Re-entry Assistance Program, 78897-78898 [2014-30668]

Download as PDF 78897 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 250 / Wednesday, December 31, 2014 / Notices For successfully enrolled and prescreened applicants, TSA would conduct a security threat assessment and make a final eligibility determination for the TSA Pre✓® Application Program. By leveraging private-sector best practices in business operations, marketing, and algorithm optimization, TSA hopes to provide a better travel experience for an increased number of trusted travelers.5 We believe input from the traveling public can be useful in a variety of areas to enhance enrollment, including: • Identification of convenient locations for enrollment centers; • Preferred marketing and communications techniques to reach a higher percentage of travelers; • Potential uses of private sector capabilities for marketing, enrollment, and prescreening of applicants; • Data sources and methods to enhance the verification of an applicant’s identity, including the use of commercially-available data; • Ideas to remove barriers to the existing application process and/or ways to streamline the application process; and • Other factors to improve the program overall. Commenters must be cognizant of the fact that, while TSA will review and consider all comments received, TSA may not implement all comments. TSA, like most Government agencies, is subject to a variety of laws that may restrict our ability to significantly restructure the program. TSA is required by law to collect fees for all vetting and credentialing programs 6 and thus, we cannot eliminate the fee for conducting security threat assessments on applicants to determine their risk status. We must collect personal information from applicants in order to conduct security threat assessments, and thus must adhere to all laws that require the protection of and regulate the use of that information. Most importantly, TSA will not implement any new measure, process, or standard that diminishes security or prevents TSA from using its discretion to make final eligibility determinations for the TSA Pre✓® Application Program. Dated: December 23, 2014. Kenneth C. Fletcher, Chief Risk Officer, Office of the Chief Risk Officer.
