Revision of Agency Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review: TSA infoBoards, 59402-59403 [2019-23969]

Download as PDF 59402 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 213 / Monday, November 4, 2019 / Notices Security Automated Biometrics Identification System (IDENT) and its successor systems for recurrent vetting of applicants’ criminal history, lawful presence, and ties to terrorism. TSA is revising the collection of information to reflect additional enrollment and vendor options in accordance with the TSA Modernization Act, Division K of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, Public Law 115–254 (132 Stat. 3185; Oct. 5, 2018) at section 1937, codified at 49 U.S.C. 44919. TSA expects to offer additional TSA Pre✓® Application Program enrollment opportunities at airports to reduce the burden on frequent travelers. Enrollment vendors may use commercial sources for the purpose of identity verification, or they may contact issuing sources of identity documents, such as State departments of motor vehicles for the same purpose. This revision also addresses TSA’s plans to utilize DHS components’ services, provided via U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Office of Biometric Identity Management, to support TSA’s biometric-based identification at the checkpoint and citizenship verification through passport information provided by the Department of State. Lastly, TSA intends to collect information from TSA Pre✓® members after enrollment through surveys to determine satisfaction and customer engagement with TSA Pre✓®. When the STA is complete, TSA makes a final determination on eligibility for the TSA Pre✓® Application Program and notifies applicants of its decision. Most applicants generally should expect to receive notification from TSA within two to three weeks of the submission of their completed applications. If initially deemed ineligible by TSA, applicants will have an opportunity to correct cases of misidentification or inaccurate criminal records. Applicants must submit a correction of any information they believe to be inaccurate within 60 days of issuance of TSA’s letter. If a corrected record is not received by TSA within the specified amount of time, the agency may make a final determination to deny eligibility. Individuals who TSA determines are ineligible for the TSA Pre✓® Application Program will undergo standard screening at airport security checkpoints. The TSA Pre✓® Application Program enhances aviation security by permitting TSA to better focus its limited security resources on passengers who are unknown to TSA and whose level of risk is undetermined, while also facilitating and improving the VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:48 Nov 01, 2019 Jkt 250001 commercial aviation travel experience for the public. Travelers who choose not to enroll in this initiative are not subject to any limitations on their travel because 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 standard or other screening on a random basis on TSA Pre✓® Application Program participants and any other travelers authorized to receive expedited physical screening. TSA estimates that there will be 1,815,779 new enrollments, 1,245,184 online renewals, and 52,159 in-person renewals (3,113,122 total enrollments) annualized over a three-year period. This estimate is based on current and projected enrollment with TSA’s existing program. TSA estimates that there will be 4,211,661 annualized hours based on a three-year projection to include enrollment, renewals, and surveys. TSA estimates an average of 1.8968 hours per applicant to complete the enrollment process, which includes providing biographic and biometric information to TSA (via an enrollment center or pre- or post-enrollment options) and the burden for any records correction for the applicant, if applicable. TSA estimates an average of 0.1666 hours per applicant to complete the on-line renewal process. TSA estimates an average of 0.0833 hours per an estimated 6,310,473 annual survey respondents to include post-enrollment, non-renewal and other TSA Pre✓® surveys. Dated: October 29, 2019.
