Information Collection Requirement OMB Control Number 1652–0064; Screening Partnership Program (SPP). TSA’s SPP (codified as amended at 49 U.S.C. 44920) 1 enables commercial airports to apply for a qualified private screening company, under contract with TSA, to provide passenger and baggage security screening services, rather than Federal employees. An authorized representative of the airport or airport owner submits a copy of the SPP application to the airport’s TSA Federal Security Director (FSD) to begin the application process. Purpose and Description of Data Collection The application process is the initial notification to TSA of an airport’s desire to opt-out of the security screening provided by TSA Federal employees. 1 The Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), Public Law 107–71, sec. 108 (115 Stat. 597, 611, Nov. 19, 2001). PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 The SPP application collects the following from each airport seeking to participate in SPP: • Basic airport information: Airport name, FAA identifier, and airport operating authority. • Authorized Requestor information: Name, position, primary and alternate phone number, mailing address and email address. • An indication of whether or not the airport authority desires to provide its own private security screening services. • A recommendation on which private screening company should perform the screening function and the basis for the recommendation. • Information on any major activities scheduled to occur at the airport within the next 18 months that could impact the transition from Federal screening to private screening (for example, major construction). • Optional information may be provided to support the consideration of their application. Use of the Information TSA will acknowledge receipt of the application, review for completeness, and provide an official response within 120 days from the date of acknowledgement. The application contains no personally identifiable information, sensitive security information, or classified information, so no special handling or protection is required. TSA currently has a screening presence at approximately 450 airports, of which 22 airports are participating in SPP, an increase from the 18 airports that participated in 2014. The annual burden for the information collection related to SPP is estimated to be 30 minutes (0.5 hours). While TSA estimates that only two airports will respond annually, it is presumed that ten or more airports could respond. The agency estimates that each respondent airport will spend approximately onequarter (.25) hour to complete the application for a total burden of one-half hour (0.50 hours). TSA does not require the airports to maintain records of the application submission. However, if the airport chooses to do so, the burden associated with this action is anticipated to be minimal.
