IRTPA Title III Annual Report
Tuesday, February 15, 2011
Title III of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA) requires an annual report of key measurements as to the timeliness of the security clearance process in February of each year through 2011. It specifically requires those reports to include the average number of days for the investigation and for the adjudication elements of the clearance process towards increasingly more timely goals set for each year through December 2009. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has further recommended that additional measures such as the average processing time for 100% (vice 90% as IRTPA requires) of the investigations and adjudications, as well as the “end-to-end” processing time, be reported to Congress as part of the annual reporting requirements in order to provide deeper insight as to progress on security clearance and suitability process reform capability development and implementation within agencies.
This report is submitted in accordance with IRTPA’s Title III reporting requirements and includes currently available metrics, in addition to the statutorily-required measures, in support of GAO’s recommendations.Click here
