IME submitted comments to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in support of changes to the form that would allow the agency to authorize non-transportation workers to obtain TWICs. This change is a step toward allowing greater use of the TWIC as an alternative to creating evermore vetting programs as new categories of workers are identified as needing a background check. IME is prompting the TWIC as an alternative to the DHS proposed "personnel surety program" under CFATS. Click here to to a copy of the comments. Click here to view a TWIC disclosure form.
