Testimony before House Homeland Subcommittee on Security Clearances
Testimony before Senate Intel Committee on Security Clearance Reform
The failures and shortcomings of the current personnel security process impact uniformed personnel, civilian employees, and contractors across the country—in every state and congressional district—and jeopardize our homeland and national security.

PSC believes both Congress and the agencies charged with oversight of the federal security clearance process can do more to broaden communications channels, provide more information about future mission needs, and reform acquisition processes to reduce costs, barriers to entry, and provide meaningful and rapid access to the best solutions industry can offer. This resource center is dedicated to keeping our members up to date with helpful information on this issue.

We encourage members to send us any issues or challenges you're facing as a result of the backlog.
