PERSEREC’s applied research and development activities are directed to achieving the following goals for DoD:
- Efficient and cost-effective automated programs that deliver fair, equitable, and timely decisions regarding suitability for employment and the granting of clearances for access to classified information and other national security assets.
- Personnel suitability, security and reliability programs that incorporate risk-management principles and maximize the use of information technology and databases to expedite investigative and adjudicative processes.
- Administrative processes that minimize labor-intensive tasks, reduce burdens on both applicants and DoD personnel as well as promote greater levels of reciprocity across Federal agencies.
- A trusted population of military, civilian, and industrial employees who are motivated and fully aware of their security responsibilities and of foreign intelligence threats that could impact their lives, work, or combat mission.
