"This is one of a series of audit, inspection, and special reports prepared as part of our oversight responsibilities to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness within the department. In response to a congressional request from U.S. Representative Bennie Thompson, Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, our report addresses the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) management of its aviation security activities at the Jackson-Evers International Airport in Mississippi. We also addressed the aviation security activities at five other airports as a means of comparison. We based this review on interviews with TSA employees, federal, state, and local law enforcement officers, commercial airline carrier employees, airport authority staff, direct observations, statistical analysis, and a review of applicable documents. The recommendations herein have been developed to the best knowledge available to our office, and have been discussed in draft with those responsible for implementation. It is our hope that this report will result in more effective, efficient, and economical operations."
