Denver International Airport (DEN) Renews Contract with Telos ID to Process Background Checks for Aviation Workers

Telos ID’s aviation channeling services offer increased efficiency and flexibility in credentialing operations at the fifth busiest airport in the United States.

ASHBURN, Va., July 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telos® Identity Management Solutions, LLC (Telos ID), a leading provider of identity management and access solutions for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, today announced that the City and County of Denver has contracted with Telos ID to provide Transportation Security Administration (TSA)-approved Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services for processing worker background checks at Denver International Airport (DEN).

Telos ID’s DAC services 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 has supported DEN with DAC services since 2013, and with recent selection to continue services, will do so for an additional five years. DEN uses the DAC via integration with its identity management system (IdMS).

“The DAC services deployment at Denver International Airport is notable for its size and scope, specifically the integration with DEN’s IdMS, enabling efficient biographic, biometric, and Rap Back transmissions,” said Dawn E. Lucini, vice president of aviation security, Telos ID. “We have streamlined the TSA-required aviation worker background check process, while upholding the high security and customer service standards at DEN.”

As an encrypted, web-based solution, Telos ID’s DAC services meet TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requirements for handling personally identifiable information and biometrics. Its modular design supports each airport’s and air carrier’s needs, and users can perform multiple functions on one platform.

“Telos ID is the recognized leader in assuring the identities of aviation workers with advanced biometric and enrollment solutions, evidenced by the growing roster of airports and airlines – 90 and counting – that currently use DAC services,” said Lucini. “We are pleased to continue our support of the City and County of Denver and its world-class airport in their efforts to provide excellence in credentialing and vetting services, all while reducing costs and providing superior customer care and flexibility.”
