OIG’s Covert Testing Identified TSA Screening Vulnerabilities

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) has published an unclassified summary of its findings from covert tests to determine the effectiveness of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) checked baggage screening.

The tests assessed technologies, related procedures, and whether TSA officers complied with screening policies and procedures. 

Details related to the test results are classified or designated Sensitive Security Information, but in its summary, the watchdog said it had identified vulnerabilities with TSA’s screener performance, associated procedures, and screening equipment.  

OIG made three recommendations, which have not been publicly disclosed, to improve TSA’s checked baggage screening operational effectiveness. TSA concurred with all three recommendations.
