TSA Issues Security Threat Assessment Application
Tuesday, November 07, 2006
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issued a notice stating that it is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to require that individuals seeking access to Sensitive Security Information (SSI) for use in civil proceedings in federal court submit a security threat assessment application. As part of this application, as proposed, the attorney will be required to submit identifying information, information regarding the litigation, an explanation supporting the party’s need for the information, information concerning the individual’s bar membership, and information concerning sanctions (if any) issued by a court or other judicial body to the individual or any of the individual’s clients. The individual must also submit fingerprints for purposes of conducting a criminal history records check. Comments on this proposal should be submitted to OMB by December 1.
