NDIA Favors Executive Order Moving Security Clearances to Pentagon

ARLINGTON, VA – The National Defense Industrial Association offers the following statement regarding the executive order from the White House, signed Wednesday evening, that transfers the governmentwide suitability, credentialing and security clearance portfolio from the Office of Personnel Management to the Defense Department:

NDIA supports the administration’s decision, announced today, to transfer responsibility for all security clearances to the Pentagon.  It’s a solid step that consolidates process and resources with the excellent work Pentagon officials have done to build the concepts and infrastructure of a modernized security clearance ecosystem.

This measure bodes well to solve the security clearance backlog; moreover, it offers a way ahead for more interagency security clearance reciprocity and, ultimately, a modern, trusted workforce across agencies and industry that is essential to our national security.

    Hopefully DoD will take steps to not lose my file to the Chinese like OPM did. I am still dealing with periodic hacking of my bank accounts from that fiasco. But Hey! The government “gave” me lifetime credit monitoring paid for with my tax dollars as compensation for their incompetence.
