ABSTRACT

Assessment of Contractor Personnel Security Clearance Processes in the Four Defense Intelligence Agencies   [open pdf - 6MB]

"Our objective was to assess: a) how, or if, substantiated investigations of misconduct were reported to Agency Clearance Adjudication Facilities (CAF) and to the DoD Consolidated Adjudication Facility (DODCAF); b) if the referred investigations had been adjudicated; and c) the results of those security adjudications." The report found that: "[1] There was a lack of effective personnel security policy. [2] There was a lack of effective record keeping. [3] There was an avoidance of personnel security adjudication for contractor personnel involved in misconduct. [4] There was a lack of personnel security information sharing. [5] There was a lack of connectivity between the Defense Central Index of Investigations (DCII) and the Joint Personnel Adjudicative System (JPAS)." Following these findings, the report offers recommendations for improvement for the respective agencies.
