Personnel Security Clearances: Actions Needed to Ensure Quality of Background Investigations and Resulting Decisions: Congressional Testimony
Brenda s. Farrell (au)
Statement of Brenda S. Farrell, Dir., Defense Capabilities and Mngt., GAO. Recently the Dir. of Nat. Intelligence (DNI) reported that more than 5.1 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 for federal employment) in FY 2011. A high quality process is essential to minimize the 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. This statement addresses (1) the security clearance process; (2) what is known about the quality of investigations and adjudications; and (3) the extent of reciprocity, which is the decision of agencies to honor clearances previously granted by other agencies. Figure. This is a print on demand report.
