Can an airport authority apply to use contract screeners at some airport security checkpoints but not all; a partial opt-out?

TSA will not accept applications to privatize a portion of an airport’s security screening operations. This model limits the flexibility of staffing required to run critical security programs, thereby not providing a successful environment for TSA or the vendor.
