What is TWIC and is it required for contractors?
TWIC stands for Transportation Worker Identification Credential.

Effective February 28, 2009, all workers in the Puget Sound area (this includes contractors and consultants) need a TWIC card to gain unescorted access to secure areas of facilities and vessels regulated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA). Further information is included in the bid documents.

More information on the TWIC Program is available at the Transportation Security Administration’s website. The contract documents will state whether a TWIC card is required for that project or not.
