This is the Janurary 18, 2018 hearing on Innovation at TSA: Examining Threat Mitigation Through Technology Acquisitions Reform, held before Subcommittee on Transportation and Protective Security of the Committee on Homeland Security of the United States House of Representatives. From the opening statement of Representative John Katko: "The subcommittee is meeting today to discuss how TSA [Transportation Security Administration] is working to mitigate threats to transportation security through reforming the agency's broken acquisitions system. In particular, the subcommittee will examine TSA's statutorily required 5-year investment plan that was recently submitted to Congress, as well as the agency's Innovation Task Force and overall procurement practices. [...] Unfortunately, TSA continues to be plagued by a reactive rather than proactive posture when it comes to technology development and deployment. While terrorists continue to develop better ways to try and defeat our security screening, TSA struggles to quickly and effectively deploy cutting-edge technology to the front lines." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David P. Pekoske.
