STAC Exit Lane Funding for 2024

Item No. 8i_Attach
Meeting Date: April 16, 2024
This Memorandum of Agreement (“Agreement”), dated as of May 1, 2024 (“Effective Date”), is made by
and between the Port of Seattle, a Washington municipal corporation (“Port”), that owns, and operates
the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (“Airport”) and Seattle-Tacoma Airline Consortium, LLC, a
Washington limited liability company (“STAC”).
WHEREAS, the United States Transportation Security Administration (“TSA”) is responsible for
the security of and staffing enforcement personnel at the Airport’s security checkpoints and exit lanes
(“Exit Lanes”), including preventing access via the Exit Lanes into the sterile area of the Airport;
WHEREAS, due to unprecedented personnel shortages, TSA has advised the Port and STAC
that staffing the Exit Lanes with TSA personnel will require reduced staffing of security checkpoints at the
Airport, causing potential congestion and passenger processing delays at the security checkpoints;
WHEREAS, in connection with the above, particularly during the summer season when the
Airport experiences its largest volume of passengers, TSA has requested that STAC provide personnel to
staff certain of the Exit Lanes and to assist TSA in divesting and revesting passengers at certain security
checkpoints, as further described below;
WHEREAS, it is in the best interests of the Port, STAC, and all airlines and other users utilizing
the Airport, including the traveling public, to avoid congestion and delays at the security check points,
while also allowing TSA to ensure appropriate staffing of the Exit Lanes and security checkpoints through
the assistance of STAC;
WHEREAS, in connection with providing such personnel to TSA to staff the Exit Lanes and
security checkpoints, STAC has requested reimbursement for the cost of providing such personnel from
the Port; and
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises, the terms and conditions set forth herein,
and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby
acknowledged, the Port and STAC, agree as follows:
General. STAC agrees to provide TSA with personnel to staff, and shall staff, (a) the
Concourse A Exit Lane (adjacent to checkpoint 1) and the Concourse C Exit Lane (adjacent to checkpoint
3) at the Airport, as indicated on Exhibit A hereto (together, the “Covered Exit Lanes”) and (b) to assist
TSA with divesting passengers (assist passengers with break-down of their items pre-security) and
revesting passengers (assist passengers with collection and retaking possession of their items postsecurity) at designated security checkpoints (the “Designated Checkpoint Locations” and, together with
the Covered Exit Lanes, the “Covered Locations”), through the duration of this Agreement. Minimum
staffing levels for the coverage state in this Section 1 shall consist of:
Twelve (12) agents assigned to both AM (5:00am to _1:30pm___) and PM
(1:00pm____ to _9:30pm___) shifts (Monday through Sunday) for divestiture operations at the
Designated Checkpoint Locations; and
Two (2) agents assigned per Covered Exit Lanes from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm
(Monday through Sunday)
The parties acknowledge and agree that STAC will provide the personnel to staff the Covered
Locations as described in this Agreement through a subcontract with VIP Hospitality LLC (VIP) or another
qualified subcontractor (each a “STAC Subcontractor” and, collectively, the “STAC Subcontractors”).
STAC may appoint up to two different STAC Subcontractors for performance of this Agreement (which

Item No. 8i_Attach
Meeting Date: April 16, 2024
may or may not include VIP). TSA shall approve in writing (with copy to the Port) each utilized STAC
Responsibilities of STAC. With respect to providing the staffing as described in Section 1
above (the “Personnel”), STAC shall perform in accordance with the following:
STAC, through STAC Subcontractor(s), shall provide TSA with properly vetted,
badged and credentialed Personnel to staff the Covered Locations in accordance with this Agreement.
STAC shall at all times comply (and shall ensure that STAC Subcontractor(s) and
all Personnel comply) with all requirements and directives of TSA in STAC’s performance of the Exit Lane
staffing and related obligations described herein, including all considerations for required staffing,
placement, alarm response, special circumstances, breach protocols, and safety guidelines.
Without limitation to the provisions of Section 2.b above, STAC shall ensure
during the duration of this Agreement during the time periods staffed by Personnel as required under
Section 1 above (1) that Personnel are assigned and in place in full accordance with TSA’s requirements
and directives; (2) that the Covered Exit Lanes are never left unattended; and (3) that no one enters the
sterile area of the Airport through the Covered Exit Lanes.
STAC will ensure Personnel will be assigned to and provide divesting / revesting
assistance at Designated Checkpoint Locations, as designated by TSA with the Port’s concurrence.
While performing divesting and revesting duties, STAC shall ensure that such Personnel are always
under the direct supervision of TSA transportation security officers.
STAC shall ensure that all Personnel are furnished with proper equipment
(uniforms, radios, etc.) to perform their duties safely, efficiently and continuously as described herein.
STAC will be reimbursed for its costs in providing the Personnel for the duration
of this Agreement, pursuant and subject to the provisions of Section 5 below.
Duration. This Agreement shall commence as of the Effective Date and shall continue
through 12:00 pm, January 15, 2025, subject to the provisions of Section 9 below.
Security Protocols, Procedures and Training. STAC warrants and represents to the Port
that TSA, using TSA certified trainers, has provided (or before assignment to Covered Locations, shall
provide) STAC, STAC Subcontractor(s) and all Personnel with all mandatory and/or necessary training,
assigned duties, standards, procedures and protocols for staffing the Exit Gates in full accordance with
TSA’s regulatory and operational requirements. The foregoing training shall include required procedures
and standards for full compliance with Sensitive Security Information (SSI) regulatory requirements and,
as applicable, full compliance with the Airport’s TSA-approved security program, as from time to time
updated. STAC further warrants and represents to the Port that any new or additional Personnel will also
be trained and certified in accordance with the foregoing sentence prior to any Covered Location staffing
assignments and that training and certification shall be updated regularly for all Exit Lane Personnel, in
accordance with TSA requirements.

Cost Reimbursement; Maximum Port Obligation.

STAC shall invoice the Port for the actual costs charged by STAC
Subcontractor(s) to STAC (without markup) for the Personnel provided by STAC Subcontractor(s) as
described in this Agreement, plus any applicable sales tax on such charges. These invoices will be
provided to the Port no later than twenty (20) calendar days after the end of the calendar month in which
the Personnel staff the Covered Locations. The Port shall review the charges and discuss/resolve any
discrepancies with STAC within ten (10) business days of receipt of such invoice. Once both parties
agree on the charges, the Port will remit payment for the agreed charges under this Section 5 to STAC
via automated clearing house (ACH) transfer within thirty (30) business days following the date of invoice.

Item No. 8i_Attach
Meeting Date: April 16, 2024

Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 5.a above, in no case shall the Port’s
obligation to reimburse STAC for the costs of providing the Personnel as described herein exceed the
amount of $2,589,163.00. For avoidance of doubt, the maximum obligation of the Port to reimburse
STAC for the Personnel to provide the services described in Section 1 above for the duration of this
Agreement shall be $2,589,163.00, regardless of the total costs incurred by STAC in providing Personnel
through expiration of the term of this Agreement.
Compliance with Laws. Without limitation to any other provision herein, in providing the
Personnel as described in Section 2 above, STAC agrees to comply, and shall cause each STAC
Subcontractor to comply, with all applicable rules and regulations of the Port, whether now in existence or
hereafter promulgated, pertaining to the Premises, including, without limitation, the Seattle-Tacoma
International Airport Rules and Regulations and Sea-Tac Airport Tariff, as currently in effect and as from
time to time updated, amended or modified in the Port’s sole and absolute discretion. STAC further
agrees to comply with all applicable federal, state, and municipal laws, ordinances, and regulations,
including without limitation those relating to airport security. STAC also shall, at its sole cost and
expense, obtain any and all certification, permits, licenses, and approvals that may be required in order to
make lawful the activities by STAC and each STAC Subcontractor at the Airport in performing the
operations described herein.
Indemnification. STAC shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Port and its
officers, directors, and employees (the “Port Parties”) from and against any and all claims, suits,
demands, judgments, losses, costs, fines, penalties, damages and expenses which may be incurred by,
charged to or recovered from any of the foregoing (a) arising in whole or part out of STAC’s operations at
the Airport and/or in connection with any of STAC’s rights and obligations contained in this Agreement,
including, but not limited to, any and all claims for damages as a result of the injury to or death of any
person or persons, or damage to any property which arises as a result of any act or omission on the part
of STAC or its officers, partners, employees, agents, contractors or subcontractors (including, without
limitation, each STAC Subcontractor), regardless of where the damage, injury or death occurred, unless
such claim, suit, demand, judgment, loss, cost, fine, penalty, damage, liability or expense was proximately
caused solely by the negligence of the Port Parties; and/or (b) arising out of the failure of STAC to keep,
observe or perform any of its obligations under this Agreement. All indemnities provided in this
Agreement shall survive the expiration or any earlier termination of this Agreement. Any final judgment
rendered against the Port for any cause for which STAC is liable hereunder shall be conclusive against
STAC as to liability and amount upon the expiration of the time for appeal therefrom. STAC expressly
agrees that its duty to defend and indemnify the Port includes negligent acts, which are concurrent,
contributory, or both by the Port, resulting in said damage or injury. STAC also agrees that the foregoing
indemnity specifically covers actions brought by its own employees and those of STAC Subcontractor(s),
including without limitation, the Personnel, and thus STAC expressly waives its immunity under industrial
insurance, Title 51 RCW, as necessary to effectuate this indemnity.


General Liability Insurance. STAC shall obtain and keep in force a commercial
general liability policy of insurance, written on ISO Form CG 00 01 10 01 (or equivalent), that protects
STAC and the Port Parties, as additional insureds using ISO Form 20 26 (either 11 85 or 07 04 revision)
or equivalent, against claims for bodily injury, personal injury and property damage based upon, involving
or arising out of STAC’s activities and operations at the Airport, and specifically including the
action/inaction of any STAC personnel, agent, licensee or invitee. Such insurance shall be on occurrence
basis providing single limit coverage in an amount not less than $5 Million per occurrence and $5 Million
in the annual aggregate. The policy shall contain a minimum $100,000 sub-limit that covers damage to
premises rented or licensed to STAC, including fire damage. The policy shall be endorsed to make the
STAC’s insurance primary and non-contributory to any insurance the Port may carry. The policy shall be
endorsed with a waiver of subrogation or waiver of the transfer of the rights of recovery in favor of the
Port Parties. On or before the Effective Date, STAC shall provide the Port with a copy of the additional
insured endorsement and other endorsements that validates the coverage requirements of this section.

Item No. 8i_Attach
Meeting Date: April 16, 2024

Automobile Liability Insurance. STAC shall obtain and keep in force a
commercial automobile liability policy of insurance, written on ISO Form CA 00 01 07 97 (or equivalent),
covering claims for bodily injury and property damage based upon, involving or arising out of motor
vehicle operations on or about the Premises and all areas appurtenant thereto. Such insurance shall
cover any “Auto” (i.e., owned, hired and non-owned) and shall be on an occurrence basis providing a
combined single limit coverage in an amount not less than $1 Million per occurrence. Note: This does
not apply to employees of STAC who are parking at the STIA and then walking to their reporting station.
Insurance Companies. Insurance required hereunder shall be in companies duly
licensed to transact business in the State of Washington and maintaining during the policy term a General
Policyholders Rating of ‘A-’ or better and a financial rating of ‘IX’ or better, as set forth in the most current
issue of “Best’s Insurance Guide.”
Deductibles. No insurance required herein shall contain a deductible or selfinsured retention in excess of $100,000 without the prior written consent of the Port. STAC shall be
solely responsible for the payment of any deductible amount under any policies of insurance required to
be carried by STAC pursuant to this Section 6.
Cancellation/Non-Renewal. The insurances STAC is required to maintain
pursuant to this Agreement shall remain current and in good standing at all times this Agreement remains
in effect, commencing as of the Effective Date. The Port shall receive documentation annually to include
a certificate of insurance and any applicable endorsements to validate the insurance required herein has
been purchased and is compliant with the requirements of this Agreement within 10 (ten) days of each
insurance renewal. Should any insurance required herein be terminated, cancelled, or not renewed, the
STAC will have five (5) days to obtain replacement insurance from the date of the termination,
cancellation or non-renewal notice STAC receives from their insurer(s).
Evidence of Insurance. Within five (5) business days following the Effective
Date, STAC shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Port, certificates of insurance, additional insured
endorsements, waivers of subrogation and any other documentation or endorsement that provides
evidence of the existence and amounts of such insurance, the inclusion of the Port as an insured as
required by this Agreement, and the amounts of all deductibles and/or self-insured retentions. Upon
request by the Port, STAC shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Port, certified copies of the policies
of insurance that STAC has purchased in order for the Port to verify insurance coverage, limits, and
endorsements or view any exclusions to the STAC’s insurance policies.
Subcontractors. STAC shall cause each STAC Subcontractor to purchase and
maintain insurance of the type specified under this Agreement and cause each subcontractor to include
the Port Parties as additional insureds as described in this Section 8. When requested by the Port, STAC
shall furnish copies of certificates of insurance coverage for each subcontract.
No Limitation of Liability. The limits of insurance required by this Agreement or
as carried by STAC shall not limit the liability of STAC nor relieve STAC of any obligation hereunder.
Waiver of Subrogation. Without affecting any other rights or remedies, STAC (for
itself and on behalf of anyone claiming through or under it by way of subrogation or otherwise) hereby
waives any rights it may have against the Port Parties (whether in contract or in tort) on account of any
loss or damage occasioned to STAC arising out of or incident to the perils required to be insured against
under this Agreement. Accordingly, STAC shall cause each insurance policy required by this Agreement
to further contain a waiver of subrogation clause. The effect of such release and waiver of the right to
recover damages shall not be limited by the amount of insurance carried or required or by any
deductibles applicable thereto.



Item No. 8i_Attach
Meeting Date: April 16, 2024
The Port may terminate this Agreement prior to its expiration by providing ten
(10) days written notice to STAC.
The parties acknowledge that TSA may elect to resume staffing of any of the
Covered Locations using TSA’s own personnel in lieu of Personnel at any point during the duration of this
Agreement, should staffing needs change or to comply with any security or other regulatory requirements
or otherwise in the exercise of TSA’s regulatory prerogative. If TSA elects to so resume staffing pursuant
to the foregoing sentence, either the Port or STAC may terminate this Agreement upon forty-eight (48)
hours written notice to the other party.
In the event this Agreement is terminated pursuant to the terms hereof, the Port
will reimburse STAC for its costs in staffing the Covered Locations, as set forth in Section 5 above,
through the last date STAC provides such staffing prior to the effective date of termination.
Assignment; Subcontracting. STAC shall not assign this Agreement or any of its rights
and privileges hereunder, or subcontract (other than with the STAC Subcontractor(s)) for the performance
of any of the work or personnel to be provided by it hereunder, without the Port's prior written approval,
which approval may be granted or withheld by the Port in the Port’s sole discretion.

Federal Nondiscrimination Regulations.

STAC agrees to comply with pertinent statutes, Executive Orders and such rules
as are promulgated to ensure that no person shall, on the grounds of race, creed, color, national origin,
sex, age, or disability be excluded from participating in any activity conducted with or benefiting from
federal assistance. If STAC transfers its obligation to another, the transferee is obligated in the same
manner as STAC. This provision obligates STAC for the period during which the property is owned, used
or possessed by STAC and the Airport remains obligated to the FAA. This provision is in addition to that
required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
During the performance of this Agreement and to the extent applicable, STAC,
for itself, its assignees, and successors in interest agrees as follows.
STAC will comply with the Title VI List of Pertinent Nondiscrimination Acts and
Authorities, as they may be amended from time to time, which are herein incorporated by reference and
made a part of this Agreement.
STAC, with regard to the work performed by it during the Agreement, will not
discriminate on the grounds of race, color, or national origin in the selection and retention of
subcontractors, including procurements of materials and Agreements of equipment. STAC will not
participate directly or indirectly in the discrimination prohibited by the Nondiscrimination Acts and
Authorities, including employment practices when the agreement covers any activity, project, or program
set forth in Appendix B of 49 CFR part 21.
In all solicitations, either by competitive bidding, or negotiation made by STAC for
work to be performed under a subcontract, including procurements of materials, or Agreements of
equipment, each potential subcontractor or supplier will be notified by STAC of STAC’s obligations under
this Agreement and the Nondiscrimination Acts and Authorities on the grounds of race, color, or national
STAC will provide all reasonably requested information and reports required by
applicable Laws and will permit access to its books, records, accounts, other sources of information, and
its facilities as may be determined by the Port or the FAA to be pertinent to ascertain compliance with
such Nondiscrimination Acts and Authorities and instructions. Where any information required of STAC is
in the exclusive possession of another who fails or refuses to furnish the information, STAC will so certify
to the Port or the FAA, as appropriate, and will set forth what efforts it has made to obtain the information.


Item No. 8i_Attach
Meeting Date: April 16, 2024
In the event of STAC’s noncompliance with the nondiscrimination provisions of
this contract, the Port will impose such contract sanctions as it or the FAA may determine to be
appropriate, including, but not limited to cancelling, terminating, or suspending the Agreement, in whole or
in part.
STAC will include the provisions of paragraphs 11.b(1) through 11.b(6) in every
subcontract, including procurements of materials and leases of equipment, unless exempt by the Acts,
the Regulations, and directives issued pursuant thereto. STAC will take action with respect to any
subcontract or procurement as the sponsor or the Federal Aviation Administration may direct as a means
of enforcing such provisions including sanctions for noncompliance. Provided, that if STAC becomes
involved in, or is threatened with litigation by a subcontractor, or supplier because of such direction,
STAC may request the sponsor to enter into any litigation to protect the interests of the sponsor. In
addition, STAC may request the United States to enter into the litigation to protect the interests of the
United States.
