Fees and Charges 

The Badging Office accepts the following forms of payment:  Credit/Debit cards, Company Checks, Cashier’s Checks and Money Orders. CASH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.


Fingerprint/Security Threat Assessment Fees 

For applicants who require both fingerprints and a security threat assessment to obtain a badge, there is a $30.00 non-refundable fee.  This fee is the cost the Airport pays to have the background check conducted. There is also a non-refundable renewal fee of $21.00 per badge to cover the cost of TSA-mandated fingerprint resubmission every 2 years. THIS FEE DOES NOT APPLY TO GROUND TRANSPORTATION DRIVERS.   (Effective July 27, 2015)

For applicants who only require a security threat assessment, there is a $9.00 non-refundable fee.  This is a one-time charge as long as the applicant maintains an active Airport badge.

Companies are invoiced on a monthly basis for all fingerprints and threat assessments conducted for their employees.


Contractor (Construction) Badges 

A badge deposit is required on each construction project based on the project cost as shown in the following table. The full deposit amount must be submitted before badges and vehicle ramp permits may be issued. At the completion of the project, a $250 fee for each non-returned badge, $50 fee for each non-returned vehicle ramp permit, and $100 for each non-returned key will be deducted from the deposit and the remaining balance refunded. The deposit must be submitted by the General Contractor.

  Contract Value   

Required Deposit Per Project

  $0 to $500,000 $5,000
  $500,001 to $1,000,000 $10,000
  $1,000,001 to $5,000,000 $15,000
  $5,000,001 to $10,000,000 $20,000
  $10,000,001 to $25,000,000       $25,000
  $25,000,001 to $50,000,000 $50,000
  $50,000,001 to $100,000,000 $75,000
  Over $100,000,000 $100,000

The deposit is in addition to the $30.00 non-refundable fee to conduct the TSA-required fingerprint check and security threat assessment (STA). These fees are invoiced to the general contractor on a monthly basis as background checks are processed throughout the duration of the project. If the duration of the project goes beyond 2 years, it will be necessary to renew badges. If this occurs, the General Contractor will be charged a non-refundable fee of $21.00 per applicant renewal. (Effective July 27, 2015)
