Security Clearance Processing Status Report, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fifteenth Congress, Second Session, December 12, 2018 [open pdf - 1MB]
This is the December 12, 2018 hearing on "Security Clearance Processing Status Report" held before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Matt Gaetz: "The Armed Services Committee is deeply interested in the security clearance process. It is essential that a rigorous, fair, and expedient process exist to identify individuals who should be allowed to access classified government data. Without a sound security system, our Nation's safety is potentially endangered and military readiness harmed. It is the Oversight Subcommittee's fifth event on this topic. Today, we will receive another mandated quarterly briefing on the security clearance process. Among other topics, we will hear about the size of the clearance background--or backlog, I should say, the trends of the backlog, and the management initiatives to address it. I am also interested in learning about the status of the Department of Defense's assumption of responsibility for background investigations and the transition of the management of that process from the National Background Investigations Bureau." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Daniel E. Payne, Charles S. Phalen Jr., and Garry P. Reid.
