Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the effectiveness
of the Department of Energy's (DOE) efforts to reduce the
processing time for security clearances for federal and contractor
employees. GAO found that: (1) DOE has decreased its personnel
security workload and reinvestigation backlog since 1988; (2) as of
June 1993, DOE had reduced its reinvestigation backlog by more than
99 percent; (3) programmatic changes within the nuclear weapons
complex could reduce the annual clearance workload; (4) contractors
complained of the lengthy delays in processing clearances after DOE
instituted its expanded reinvestigation program in 1985; (5)
contractors could not recall any significant adverse effects on
their operations or DOE programs due to the processing delays; and
(6) DOE increased its staff and reduced the number of clearances to
expedite its security clearance process.
