The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) published an outline of key objectives to continuously improve security and safeguard the nation’s transportation systems.
TSA Administrator David Pekoske presented his new objectives intended to guide the agency and its workforce over the next two years on managing new global security risks to safeguard all modes of transportation. The “Administrator’s Intent 2.0,” addresses tangible security threats across seven broad categories: insider risk, surface transportation, checkpoint strategies, workforce support, cybersecurity, outcome-oriented policy management, and utilization of TSA’s security authorities.
“I am proud of the hard work and achievements TSA has made over the previous two years as a result of the first Administrator’s Intent released in 2018, and am confident in our dedicated professionals as we reprioritize our efforts on emerging threats,” Administrator Pekoske said. “Administrator’s Intent 2.0 builds upon the successes achieved to date and acknowledges the agility and adaptability necessary in our ongoing response to the COVID-19 global pandemic.”
Administrator’s Intent 2.0 seeks to galvanize the focus and commitment of TSA’s talented workforce and the vigilance of our partners across the transportation sector to safeguard the traveling public. It also establishes new objectives and timelines, which were developed with input and insight from government and industry partners. The new objectives represent priorities for implementation through fiscal year 2022 as well as the steps to guide the TSA workforce to safeguard all modes of transportation by raising the baseline of aviation security.
