may request that the party's representative or court reporter be 
granted access to the SSI. Under Sec. Sec.  1520.11 and 1520.15 of 49 
CFR, TSA has also extended this process to include a prospective bidder 
who is seeking to submit a proposal in response to a request for 
proposal issued by TSA; an individual involved in the performance of
