Connolly to Host Security Clearance Roundtable At George Mason University
On Monday, February 24, Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, will host a roundtable discussion on the challenges private sector companies may face when seeking federal security clearances for prospective and current employees. Roundtable participants will discuss the background investigation and adjudication backlog and evaluate proposals to reform and improve the security clearance process.
“Private sector companies play a vital role in protecting national security and helping the federal government achieve critical agency missions,” said Chairman Connolly. “This public-private partnership is critical to our national security. Our roundtable is an opportunity to hear from the stakeholders most directly affected by the system’s shortcomings, and is an important step toward a more effective, timely, and transparent security clearance process.”
