ABSTRACT

Personnel Security Clearances: Plans Needed to Fully Implement and Oversee Continuous Evaluation of Clearance Holders, Report to Congressional Requesters   [open pdf - 3MB]

"Continuous evaluation is a key executive branch initiative to more frequently identify and assess security relevant information, such as criminal activity. Implementing a continuous evaluation program has been a longstanding goal, with implementation milestones as early as 2010 and DOD [Department of Defense] pilots dating back to the early 2000's. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review efforts to implement continuous evaluation. This report assesses the extent to which (1) ODNI [ Office of the Director of National Intelligence] has implemented an executive branch-wide program and developed plans to monitor and measure its performance; (2) DOD and other agencies have designed, piloted, and evaluated continuous evaluation and (3) agencies completed timely periodic reinvestigations from fiscal years 2012- 2016, and the potential effects of continuous evaluation on reinvestigations."
