Defense Department and DON policy require personnel who access PII to receive a favorable personnel security investigation.
These requirements include, among other things, milestones for the reduction in length of time to complete personnel security investigations and adjudications, reciprocity of security clearance and access determinations, the establishment of an integrated database to track investigative and adjudication information with the authorization of appropriations for its implementation, and continuous evaluation of available technology in investigations and adjudications.
In October 2006, PSS was recognized as the top security and suitability office in the federal government with the Office of Personnel Management Guardian Award, given for PSS's innovative and cost-effective approach to conducting personnel security investigations.
June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- A subsidiary of DynCorp -- a leading information technology and outsourcing solutions firm -- has been awarded a contract to provide end-to-end personnel security investigation services to the Defense Security Service (DSS) of the Department of Defense (DoD).
With that history in mind, perhaps it is not so surprising that a GAO analysis of 530 personnel security investigations at the DoD reveals that background investigations of personnel are woefully inadequate.
The backlog included estimates by the Defense Security Service (DSS)--the agency responsible for administering DOD's personnel security investigations program--that consisted of more than 61,000 reinvestigations (required for renewing clearances) that were overdue but had not been submitted to DSS; over 101,000 new DSS investigations or reinvestigations that had not been completed within DOD's established time frames; and over 25,000 cases awaiting adjudication (a determination of clearance eligibility) that had not been completed within DOD's established time frames.
The new forms are DD Form 3982, national agency questionnaire; DD Form 398, personnel security questionnaire; and DD Form 1879, DoD request for personnel security investigation to industry.
