Over the course of the program, the team will rely on certified MWBE subcontractors, vendors and consultants to aid in the successful completion of the project. Through our Commodities and Services Division, The Port Authority strives to achieve key initiatives, such as the Set-Aside and Price Preference Programs. These advantages are implemented to achieve Minority, Woman, and Small Business Enterprise (MBE/WBE/SBE) goals.
SECURE WORKER ACCESS CONSORTIUM
The Port Authority of NY & NJ requires membership in the Secure Worker Access Consortium (SWAC). SWAC provides a managed, certified compliance to meet workforce qualification requirements and to reduce security challenges while working at Newark Liberty International Airport and other facilities.
EWR Redevelopment Programs require that all contractors perform background checks through SWAC and obtain SWAC identification cards with a “high” SWAC approval level for all new contracted personnel. No additional SWAC processing is necessary if contract personnel had been previously SWAC-approved (at the requested level) for other projects and/or locations.
For membership or information about the SWAC process, including office locations and hours of operation, please click the link below to visit the SWAC website.
NEW AIRPORT SECURITY ID CARDS APPLICATION PROCESS
Please contact your company authorized signatory prior to starting the Airport Security ID Card application process. An authorized signatory is the designated representative of a company authorized to sponsor individuals and request Airport Security ID Cards. Authorized signatories are familiar with the requirements to obtain an Airport Security ID Card and should be your primary point of contact for all Airport Security ID Card needs.
