Abstract:

The Defense Personnel Security Research Center SRC conducted a study of the efficiency and effectiveness of Adjudicative Guidelines and Investigative Standards approved by the President in 1997. Results indicate that DoD has successfully implemented the Adjudicative Guidelines and Investigative Standards. On a summary measure the guidelines were rated as adequate. Those ranked highest in terms of their adequacy were Financial Considerations, Criminal Conduct, Alcohol Consumption, and Drug Involvement. Those ranked lowest were Foreign Preference, EmotionalMental and Personality Disorders, Outside Activities, and Misuse of Information Technology Systems. A workshop attended by senior Adjudicators suggested there may be a high level of consistency when applying the guidelines to identical cases.
