DSS will resume processing Top Secret PRs for industry

Because of a funding shortfall and the impact of sequestration on the FY13 Personnel Security Investigations for Industry Program budget, the Defense Security Service suspended submission of most Top Secret periodic reinvestigation (PR) requests for cleared industry personnel beginning on June 14, 2013. After carefully monitoring and managing industry submissions for initial clearance and reinvestigation requests, DSS has determined that sufficient funding is now available to resume processing deferred Top Secret PRs effective Aug. 28, 2013,for the remainder of the fiscal year. DSS will continue to closely monitor the program's expenditures and will determine if any further actions are necessary.
