CQI up holds Transportation Security Administration (or TWIC), a government program that issues specialized biometric tamper resistant cards to workers of a certain class. The workers are required to obtain one of these cards including anyone who works at a government designated site such as, military installations, docks, and other sensitive areas. These include members of the Merchant Marines, Longshoremen, Truck Drivers, and anyone else who needs to work at sensitive sites without a security escort.

In addition to this, they must undergo a stringent background check process. This is governed by the TSA, and individuals are investigated to ascertain whether they have a criminal or arrest record.
