Needs and Uses: Under the National Industrial Security Program (NISP), the Defense Security Service (DSS) is responsible for personnel security clearance investigations within industry. The Defense Security Service has used historical data for agency budget projections.
This collection of information is necessary to request the voluntary assistance of a segment of the cleared industry facilities to provide projections of numbers and types of personnel security investigations. This initial effort will serve as the prototype for an annual data collection from industry. This information collection will only address the largest cleared facilities that account for a significant number of the security clearances. The data would become part of the total clearance projections for industry to be included in an automated database for use with DSS budget submissions.
