Intelligence Authorization Act for the Fiscal Year 2010 established a requirement for the President to submit an annual report to Congress on the security clearance process, to include the total number of security clearances across government and in-depth metrics on the timeliness of security clearance determinations in the Intelligence Community (IC). In response to this requirement, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has prepared and just released the 2013 Report on Security Clearance Determinations. This report, which is publicly available, coincides with the change in policy on security clearances announced recently by Secretary of Defense Hagel.
I have been handling security clearance revocation cases for several years. Please see my previous blog posts relating to security clearance issues.
