Jeff Brody

Around 3,200 National Background Investigations Bureau employees recieved offers from the Office of Personnel Management and Department of Defense to work under the newly formed Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency, Federal News Network reported Monday. A senior administration official noted that the transfer will not change the employees’ salary grade, work space and supervisors “except for a few executives.”

According to the DoD Personnel Vetting Transformation Office, there are around 100 critical projects and 2,000 individual tasks that come with the migration effort which will take effect on Sept. 29.

President Trump signed an executive order directing the transfer of security clearance processing duties to DCSA in April.
