Abstract:

On October 28, 2004, the President of the United States signed into law the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005. Section 1061 of that act enables the National Driver Register NDR to be checked for individuals who either 1 have or are seeking access to national security information for purposes of Executive Order 12968, or 2 are being investigated for federal employment under authority of Executive Order 10450. The objective of this PERSEREC study was to compare results of Local Agency Checks LACs to results of checks of the NDR for the same group of subjects. Results show that the NDR can efficiently and effectively help identify significant driving-related derogatory information that should be made available to adjudicators and decision makers when determining whether to place or retain individuals in positions of trust. PERSEREC and National Highway Transportation Safety Administration NHTSA should initiate meetings to develop the policies, procedures, and automated system linkages needed to implement electronic NDR checks for use in federal personnel security background screening.
