Within [[DHS]], [[TSA]] is responsible for developing and acquiring new technologies to address transportation-related [[homeland security]] needs. [[TSA]]'s [[acquisition]] programs represent billions of dollars in life-cycle costs and support a wide range of aviation security missions and investments, including technologies used to screen passengers and checked baggage such as [[advanced imaging technology]] ([[AIT]]) and explosive detection systems (EDS), among others. [[GAO]]'s testimony addresses three key [[DHS]] and [[TSA]] challenges identified in past work: (1) developing and meeting technology program requirements, (2) overseeing and conducting [[testing]] of new screening technologies, and (3) identifying [[acquisition]] program [[baseline]]s (or starting points), program schedules, and costs. This statement will also discuss recent [[DHS]] and [[TSA]] efforts to strengthen [[TSA]]'s investment and [[acquisition]] processes.
