Personnel Security Clearances: Full Development and Implementation of Metrics Needed to Measure Quality of Process: Congressional Testimony
Brenda S. Farrell (au)
Statement of Brenda S. Farrell, Dir., Defense Capabilities and Mngt., GAO. A high-quality personnel security clearance process is necessary to minimize the associated risks of unauthorized disclosures of classified information and to help ensure that information about individuals with criminal activity or other questionable behavior is identified and assessed as part of the process for granting or retaining clearances. Personnel security clearances allow individuals access to classified information that, through unauthorized disclosure, can in some cases cause exceptionally grave damage to U.S. national security. In 2012, more than 4.9 million federal government and contractor employees held or were eligible to hold a security clearance. The federal government spent over $1 billion to conduct background investigations (in support of security clearances and suitability determinations äóî the consideration of character and conduct for federal employment) in FY 2011. This testimony addresses the (1) overall security clearance process, including roles and responsibilities; and (2) extent that executive branch agencies have metrics to help determine the quality of the security clearance process. This is a print on demand report.
