This testimony compilation is from the January 14, 2014 hearing, "TSA Oversight: Examining the Screening Partnership Program," before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the statement of Kelly C. Hoggan: "…I am pleased to appear before you today to discuss the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Screening Partnership Program (SPP). TSA is a high-performing counterterrorism agency with a dedicated workforce executing our mission around the clock and across the globe, charged with facilitating and securing the travel of the nearly 1.8 million air passengers who fly each day. Our goal at all times is to maximize transportation security to stay ahead of evolving terrorist threats while protecting passengers' privacy and facilitating the secure and efficient flow of legitimate commerce. TSA's current security measures consist of a multi-layered system of transportation security that identifies, manages and mitigates risk. No layer on its own solves all our challenges, but, in combination, they create a strong and formidable system. TSA has taken significant steps to focus its resources and improve the passenger experience at security checkpoints by applying intelligence-driven, risk-based screening procedures and enhancing its use of technology." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kelly C. Hoggan, Mark Bell, and Jennifer Grover.
