Efficiency and Flexibility of TSA-Authorized Service Enhances Ability to Screen Employees and Contractors
ASHBURN, Va. – September 18, 2012 – Telos Identity Management Solutions LLC (Telos® ID) has been selected by Burbank, California’s Bob Hope Airport to provide Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services for processing employee and contractor security threat assessments.
Telos ID is one of three vendors selected by Transportation Security Administration to provide airports and airlines with aviation channeling services, and is the first to be certified under the agreement announced by TSA last year.
“Telos ID’s DAC service is proving essential to airports large and small,” said Telos ID President Mark Griffin. “We’re helping BUR and its tenant businesses to streamline their screening and badging processes.”
Aviation channeling services are used to submit employee information to TSA to conduct the employee threat assessments that are required for individuals working in an aviation environment. TSA requires assessments to be conducted for all airport and airline employees with access to the secure areas of an airport, including baggage handlers, ground maintenance providers and restaurant and retail employees.
Telos ID’s DAC offering lets aviation-related employers more efficiently run their background check and badging operations. It meets TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations for handling personally identifiable information, and as a Web-based solution, it allows users to securely access the system wherever they have an Internet connection. Telos ID also provides additional customer service options and more visibility and flexibility for its customers.
