Facility Clearances and Corporate Coverage
Numerous government contracts are contingent upon an organization and its members obtaining and maintaining facility clearances. Like personnel clearances, facility clearances have three levels – confidential, secret and top-secret. In these instances, complete corporate coverage, including all major officers, is required for a classified contract. Further complicating matters, if one corporate member is not cleared, such as the Chief Financial Officer, an entire organization is denied a facility clearance, costing thousands, if not millions of dollars in lost contract revenue.
