Security Clearance

A SECRET clearance is required for Keystone participation.

1. Clearances must be posted and up to date in the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS).   If you have a secret clearance and it is up to date in JPAS, there is nothing more you need to do.  Our Security Manager will confirm your information is up to date using JPAS.  If there is any problem, we will contact you for additional info.

For DoD NOT using JPAS: Send a visit request via JPAS to SMO W37WAA6. POC must state Billy Hargrove 202-685-4250; purpose: Training

For non-DoD: A fax on command letterhead is acceptable. The visit must include subject clearance level, investigation date, adjudication date, along with date and place of birth.

2. All security clearances must be current.  Secret within the last 10 years, Top Secret within the last 5 years.
