Quit Duplicating Security Clearances

Currently, people who hold security clearances in both a civilian position and as a military Reservist must submit clearance paperwork twice, be investigated/reinvestigated twice, and interviewed twice. This duplication requires separate investigators to go through the exact same data, the exact same questions, and the exact same procedures at double the cost and time.

Removing this practice could save hundreds of thousands... more »

Re-useable Accredited Multi-Level Security (MLS) System

Central Federal or DoD agency (e.g., DISA or NGA) sponsor a multi-level security (MLS) system architecture with re-usable SW & systems components and approved accreditation for pulling data from unclassified or classified storage to higher classification levels for secure processing. This would provide one-stop center for supporting agencies with classified processing requirements for achieving cost & technical data... more »

DoD Home User PC's Minimum Security Criteria

My idea is to provide better security from the home user perspective to avoid "over the shoulder" surfing with our DoD sailors, soldiers, Marines, etc.
I work at a University back home in Dubuque, IA and we require our students to register their PC's by running it through a minimum security software levels before allowing their PC's to be able to connect to the University's network resources by use of vLAN's.

Unify and streamline security-clearance process

PROPOSAL: Create a single Bureau, perhaps within OPM, DOD or DHS, that specializes in one thing: Doing background checks and security clearances for all other bureaus.

RATIONALE: I recently took a federal job that required a security clearance. I had to go through the complete process, despite the fact that I was coming to the agency from the Air Force, which had ALREADY done the EXACT SAME THING. In other words, the... more »

Self-Service Screening - Technology - Security - Cost Savings

My idea is to implement self-service screening stalls (Plexiglas walled). These facilities would have credential readers (Credential Authentication and Verification devices) and credit/debit card readers. If the credentials and credit card were valid, the stall door would be unlocked for entry. The traveler would have 1 minute to divest, load bins and successfully walk through the metal detector (2 tries) without any... more »

Government Security Clearances Be Recognized By TSA

I suggest that Federal Employees who have a current Security Clearance that has been performed as a requirement for their job and includes background and national agency checks and interviews should be allowed by the Transportation Safety Agency to go through minimal security screening and that their HSPD-12 Government ID be used for expeditious service. This would enhance security, reduce TSA costs, improve customer... more »

Centralize HSPD-12 with PERSEC

(Dovetails on centralization of PERSEC)

 

Transfer the HSPD-12 initative to PERSEC. Agencies "replicate user accounts" as they hire / inprocess; and cease when the employee moves on.

 

Can tie to centralized pay and finance systems.

 

Can also intake personnel with "special skills" to prequalify for security clearances (and blackball if not applying for federal positions to avoid trophy hunters).

Branches of Government should not be Consolidated in Washington, DC

Every year I have great concern when I see all the branches of government in one place at one time during the State of the Union Address. This is one big target for terrorists. It wasn't that long ago we all witnessed the events of 9/11. It would be a wise decision to spread the branches of goverment across the US and not have it consolidated it one place.

Improve communication, accountability and transparency of inter-related work groups

Doing business with inter-office IT groups like security, telecommunications, operations, etc. should be similar to working with outside customers/vendors. Work tickets/contracts should be completed within a timely manner and communication should be performed to let the customer know the status. Currently, we waste valuable time ($) waiting on other work groups to finish tasks because there is nothing pusing them to... more »

Consolidate all internal resiliency-type programs.

There are a number of programs spread throughout the HHS Office of the Secretary (OS) all designed to ensure the resiliency, safety, and security of OS personnel, programs, and resources. To name a few, some are:
• Internal Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) program (OSSI)

Discontinue security programs which provide no actual security, such as LincPass.

Additionally, the TSA reports that DHS has stated it is no longer considered proof of identity.
