of a dependent minor with child care needs. Such assessment shall also 
examine any impact on recruitment, retention, and career advancement of 
such policies, procedures, and practices. Such assessment shall be 
conducted by a federally funded research and development center 
established pursuant to section 305 of the Homeland Security Act of 
2002 (6 U.S.C. 185) or a national academy or laboratory with 
appropriate expertise, as determined by the Administrator.

include the following:
            (1) An assessment of the impacts of TSA policies,

            (3) An assessment of the efficacy of policies for

        collocated Federal, State, or local agencies or businesses.
            (5) Recommendations for improving such policies, 
        procedures, and practices regarding such personnel who are 
        parents or guardians of a dependent minor with child care needs 
        or who are expectant parents or guardians of a dependent minor 
        with child care needs.
    (c) Consultation.--The entity conducting the assessment required 
under subsection (a) shall consult with appropriate stakeholders, 
including labor organizations (including the labor organization 
representing security screening personnel), airport operators, air 
carriers, and other aviation industry stakeholders.

completion of the assessment required under subsection (a), the
