Abstract. The current paper has considered the Screening Partnership Program instituted in 2004 by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in the United States, through which federal international airports have the right to employ accredited private security agencies to conduct screening and enforce security of the airport, instead of TSA officers. In the current paper, there have been also analyzed the problematic issues that have arisen in the application of such a program, as well as the financial costs of attracting such agencies, based on published electronic auctions.
Keywords: transport security; inspection; screening; Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in the United States.
