Screening Partnership Program

Man and woman raising their hands in a group of other professionals

We developed the Screening Partnership Program, or SPP, in order to benefit from private-sector expertise and know-how. Airports work in partnership with us to hire a qualified private screening company to provide screening services under federal oversight. We contract with the private screening company while providing oversight, funding, and continuity for air travelers.

This program is unique within the federal government, so to answer your questions about the program, the application, the acquisition process or the SAFETY Act please click the links below:
