An Assessment of Planned 2015 Spending
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) provides security for the US transportation system with over 53,000 employees and a discretionary budget of over $7 billion. TSA applies screening technologies in conjunction with risk-based security principles to provide the most effective transportation security in the most efficient way. The enclosed research offers some details into the TSA 2015 budget request and where it plans to apply future spending.
Introduction and Definitions
-The enclosed insight serves as a review of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) funding request for the upcoming fiscal year 2015. An underlying objective of this short research insight is to highlight specific funding requests that may offer some intelligence indicators to opportunities within the TSA market.
- Funding data cited within this insight reflect only those funds assigned for discretionary spending and does not include mandatory fees. All years in this review refer to US government fiscal years (the 12-month period ending on 30 September 2015, having begun on 1 October 2014).
-Market share and competitive analysis for this research are based on government contract obligations distributed in 2013. The base year used for this research is 2013 because it was the last year complete market share data was available, however, the program funding is based on the 2015 budget proposal submitted to Congress in February 2014.
-A complete funding request breakdown is furnished within this insight, however, an itemization of every Program/Project Activity (PPA) for each budget line is not supplied. Only key PPAs according to the analyst’s discretion, which may offer some intrinsic value to present and potential market participants, are reviewed.
-TSA has requested $ billion in discretionary funding for 2015, the bulk of which is planned for aviation security programming. The 2015 request displays a small decrease compared to 2014 funding, but key programs such as Explosives Detection Systems (EDS) and Large Aircraft and Private Charter Passenger Screening will increase by an estimated $ million.
-TSA is ranked 3rd among other DHS agencies in the dollar amount of contract obligations dispensed during 2013 with $ billion in award obligations distributed to over companies. This amount is about $ million less than TSA contracts dispersed in 2012.
-Lockheed Martin was able to win the top spot by receiving the largest portion of contract obligations estimated at % of the TSA total.
-TSA has several information technology (IT) based projects that are currently ongoing and worth citing as they will continue to be funded throughout future years. The following are being paid for using 2014 enacted funding:
oInformation Technology Infrastructure Program ($ million)
oSecure Flight ($ million)
