"We will lead the Department of the Navy (DON) Security Enterprise to develop collaboratively and issue effective security policy; ensure comprehensive oversight of policy compliance; oversee and advocate for DON resourcing of the DON Security Enterprise; and promote cross-functional and enterprise-wide security integration."

Due to the several factors including the OPM data breach, the federal workforce is experiencing a substantial increase in investigation times.  At this point a Tier 3 investigation will likely take over 6 months to complete while a SSBI/SBPR will take closer to a year.  Unfortunately there is no improvement in sight, in fact we can expect times to lengthen over the next year.  This issue is being experienced across the federal government and there is very little we can do about it at this point.  We have been asked to place a priority on some investigations, but after discussions with DoD and OPM we have been told the difference in speed would be very negligible, if any faster at all.  We also know that by speeding up one investigation we move all others back, increasing the investigation time substantially.  We are working with the office of Manpower and Reserve Affairs to minimize issues where we can and will provide information as it becomes available.
