Alternate Title: CBO Cost Estimate: S. 1893 Transportation Security Acquisition Reform Act
This is a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cost estimate for S. 1893. "S. 1893 would specify procedures for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to follow when planning, making, and evaluating acquisitions of security-related technology. The bill would require the agency to develop a multiyear investment plan to be transmitted to the Congress and updated every two years. The bill also would specify analyses and reports that TSA must complete to justify certain investments, evaluate the performance of technology acquired under the bill, and enhance its capacity to monitor and utilize existing inventories of security-related equipment. In addition, S. 1893 would direct GAO [Government Accountability Office] to review and report on issues related to TSA's policies for procuring security-related technology."
