SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available 
at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and 
approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting 
comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is 
authorized to protect property owned, occupied, or secured by the 
Federal Government. See 40 U.S.C. 1315. See also 41 CFR 102-81.15 
(requires Federal agencies to be responsible for maintaining security 
at their own or leased facilities). DHS Instruction Manual 121-01-011-
01 (Visitor Management for DHS Headquarters and DHS Component 
Headquarters Facilities (April 19, 2014)) requires all DHS components 
to vet visitors using the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) 
Wants & Warrants/Criminal History checks before allowing them access to 
the building.

Purpose and Description of Data Collection

    TSA has established a visitor management/vetting process that meets 
DHS requirements. This process allows TSA to conduct business with 
visitors and guest workers, while managing risks posed by individuals 
entering the building who have not been subject to a full employee 
security background check. Once vetted, TSA's Visitor Management System 
(VMS) generates temporary paper badges with photographs that visitors 
must wear when entering TSA facilities in the National Capital Region 
(NCR) \1\ for the duration of their visit.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ TSA facilities in the National Capital Region include TSA 
Headquarters, the Freedom Center, the Transportation Security 
Integration Facility (TSIF), the Metro Park office complex (Metro 
Park), and the Annapolis Junction facility (AJ).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Under TSA's current visitor management/vetting process, visitors 
seeking to enter the TSA facilities must request access in person or 
through a current TSA employee by completing TSA Form 2802, Security 
Appointment Center (SAC) Visitor Request Form. TSA Form 2802 requires 
that visitors provide their first and last name, date and time of 
visit, visitor type (DHS or other government visitor), and whether they 
are a foreign or national visitor. In order to complete the new vetting 
process, TSA must collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII). 
The information collection includes the information TSA previously 
collected, and date of birth and social security number. TSA will use 
this information to vet visitors via the NCIC Wants & Warrants/Criminal 
History Checks and maintain records of access to TSA facilities.
    TSA estimates the average annual number of visitors for 2016 
through 2018 to be 42,843, with an annual time burden to the public of 
714 hours.

Use of Results

    TSA will use the results to determine the suitability of visitors 
to the TSA NCR locations. The collection would support the information 
needs of TSA to comply with security procedures to ensure a safe and 
secure work environment for TSA facilities' employees, contractors, and 
visitors.
