Senate Introduces Bill to Prevent Conflicts of Interest For Security Clearance Contractors

On February 27, 2014, Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) and co-sponsors Sen. Clair McCaskill (D-MO) and Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK) introduced the “Preventing Conflicts of Interest with Contractors Act” (S. 2061). If passed, the bill would preclude the Office of Personnel Management director from awarding to any entity a contract under which the entity would be responsible for conducting quality review processes for its own background investigation fieldwork services or background investigation support services. The bill defines “quality review process” as the process of reviewing background investigation services to ensure that investigative, administrative, and other required standards were satisfied. The bill was referred to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
