Why is TSA expanding the number of TSA PreCheck® enrollment providers?

The TSA Modernization Act, part of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, required the TSA to enter into an agreement with at least two private sector entities to increase the methods and capabilities available for the public to enroll in the popular TSA PreCheck program. TSA expects that additional enrollment providers will foster innovative enrollment methods, improve competition, and provide more convenience to applicants by expanding the TSA PreCheck® enrollment network.
