The Fiscal Year 2019 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act (P.L. 116-6), as amended by the FY 2023 Consolidated Appropriations Act (P.L. 117-328 ), authorizes TSA to pilot a program through FY 2025, allowing the agency to enter into reimbursable agreements with up to eight TSA regulated entities, as outlined in 49 CFR Part 1500, to provide screening services at locations other than primary passenger terminal screening areas.
TSA has developed guidance for requesting screening services under Section 225, and participants will be selected and evaluated through a fair, equitable, and transparent process.
The pilot program will allow TSA to provide screening services in support of regulated entities without negatively effecting current operations at TSA security checkpoints. Under program agreements, selected participants will reimburse TSA fully for all personnel and non-personnel costs associated with establishing and providing these additional security screening services.
To learn more about the Reimbursable Screening Services Program, please email TSA.RSSP@tsa.dhs.gov.
The Reimbursable Screening Services Program (RSSP) is a pilot program that will enable TSA to be reimbursed for establishing and providing screening services outside an airport terminal’s existing primary screening area for passengers. Requests for RSSP locations not at or near an airport (“off-airport”) will be considered if TSA security protocols and funding requirements and agreements with the relevant local airport authorities can be met.
