Can the airport authority elect to privatize non-regulatory positions, such as moving bins and divestiture officer positions?

If the airport authority wishes to contract directly with a vendor to provide non-regulatory or non-certified positions, TSA will not object. Any such work would of course have to follow all standard operating procedures and other pertinent regulations. The work would also have to be coordinated through the federal security director to assure proper supervision.
