American identity services provider MorphoTrust USA (Safran) has won a contract from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to provide enrollment services for the TSA Pre-Check application programme.
The TSA Pre-Check application programme allows pre-approved, low-risk travellers the opportunity to apply for expedited screening at participating US airports.
The contract includes the most recent location in the Nashville International airport.
MorphoTrust’s IdentoGO Centers offer a single location where Americans can access a growing number of identity-related services through a nationwide network of professional and convenient locations.
The centres, which span all 50 states and US territories, offer capture and transmission of electronic fingerprints
The IdentoGO Centers are supporting TSA by providing enrollment services at approximately 300 locations at both on-airport and off-airport enrollment centers.
MorphoTrust identity services senior vice-president Charles Carroll said: "MorphoTrust has years of experience delivering services that support the vetting of individuals with an emphasis on professionalism and convenience, and we have proudly supported the TSA for more than eight years."
"TSA Pre-Check is an extremely popular programme that has enabled millions of trusted travelers to speed through airport screening. MorphoTrust is excited to help TSA bring this convenience to a larger share of the traveling public, while ensuring security for all travelers."
Under the Universal Enrollment Services (UES) contract with TSA, MorphoTrust is the authorised enrollment provider for the TSA Pre-Check application programme.
The UES contract combines enrollment and registration services for multiple TSA programmes, including the TSA Pre-Check application, Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) and Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) threat assessment programmes, into a single service with convenient locations nationwide.
