TSA awards US$19m private screening contract at Atlantic City International Airport

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has selected VMD Systems Integrators as the private screening contractor for Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) under the agency’s Screening Partnership Program (SPP).

The US$19.75m contract is for security screening services for both passenger checkpoint and checked baggage operations. If all options are exercised, the total period of performance is 60 months, effective from October 5, 2017.

Under the SPP, TSA managers at each airport will be responsible for overseeing TSA security standards and contractor performance. SPP is designed to meet the requirements established in the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) of 2001.

Beginning in 2002, the ATSA required TSA to conduct a screening partnership pilot program at five airports. Since 2004, when the pilot program ended, all commercial airports have been eligible to apply to SPP.

There are 21 airports participating in the SSP in addition to Atlantic City International Airport. They are:
San Francisco International Airport (SFO);
Kansas City International Airport (MCI);
Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC);
Jackson Hole Airport (JAC);
Tupelo Regional Airport (TUP), plus Sioux Falls Regional Airport (FSD);
Key West International Airport (EYW);
Charles M Schulz–Sonoma County Airport (STS);
Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ);
Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB);
Punta Gorda Airport (PGD);
Portsmouth International Airport (PSM);
Roswell International Air Center (ROW);

and eight Montana airports:
Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN);
Glacier Park Airport (FCA);
Sidney-Richland Municipal Airport (SDY);
Dawson Community Airport (GDV);
L. M. Clayton Airport (OLF);
Wokal Field/Glasgow International Airport (GGW); and
Havre City-County Airport (HVR) and Yellowstone Airport (WYS).
