Bill Introduced to Create Transparency in DHS Security Clearance Process

Originally published at:

Most of the articles I post have dealt with Department of Defense (DoD) security clearance matters and case studies. That is mainly because other than the Department of Energy, there is not much information forthcoming from other Federal agencies regarding numbers of cases, timelines for processing, decisions, and appeals. That may be about to change…

Some of us are old enough to remember when there was no DHS. Many of the immigration-related functions fell under DOJ and even then there were issues sharing clearance data. Of course Secret Service was under Treasury, and they were legendary for not sharing clearance data. And now we have the Coast Guard in there as well.

I wonder if there are problems not only with transparency of DHS investigation and clearance data, but just with sharing clearance info among the various elements of DHS itself?

This is indeed a welcome news.

When does it take effect? :slight_smile:
I’ve just had my 11000.25 sent. I have TS/SCI now at DOD/IC.
It will be interesting to see how long DHS takes to process me.
Does anyone have any idea how long it has been taking?
