Telos® Identity Management Solutions, LLC (Telos ID), a provider of identity management and access solutions has announced that the City and County of San Francisco has contracted with Telos ID to provide Transportation Security Administration (TSA)-approved Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services for processing worker background checks at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
Telos ID’s DAC services are designed to improve data integrity, increase the efficiency of credentialing operations, and reduce costs. DAC services enable submissions of workers’ biographic and biometric data to conduct background checks, including subscriptions to the FBI Rap Back Program, for individuals working in secure areas of U.S. commercial airports. Telos ID conducted onsite DAC and Rap Back training and integrated with SFO’s airport identity management system (AIDMS), HID SAFE.
“The DAC services deployment at San Francisco International Airport is notable for its size and scope, specifically the integration with SFO’s AIDMS, enabling efficient I-9 document transfer and Rap Back transmissions,” said Dawn E. Lucini, vice president of aviation security, Telos ID. “With more than 25 thousand badge holders, we have streamlined the worker background check process, while upholding the high security standards at SFO.”
Telos ID’s DAC services meet TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requirements for handling personally identifiable information and, as an encrypted, web-based solution, Telos ID’s DAC users securely access the system wherever they have an internet connection. Its modular design supports each airport’s and air carrier’s needs, and users can perform multiple functions on one platform.
