TSA to test private vendor to help speed US airport checks
from Bloomberg Businessweek
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration plans to test using a private vendor next year to expand its expedited-security program at airports, Administrator John Pistole said. Consumers who aren't part of an airline frequent-flier program would be able to pay a vendor a fee to undergo a security check based on criteria set by the agency, Pistole said in an interview. The company would notify TSA who gets approved, and applicants who pass a second review by the agency would be admitted to the PreCheck program, he said.
