Abstract : The downsizing of the Department of Defense has caused increasingly greater scrutiny to be placed on the costs of the personnel security system. One of the large expenses in this system is the cost of conducting personnel security background investigations. There is a need for more accurate data concerning the costs of investigations. PERSEREC in this study has examined the costs of conducting different types of personnel security investigations by the Defense Investigative Service (DIS). A methodology was developed for more accurately estimating DIS investigative costs. This methodology was applied to data for FY92 and FY93 and cost estimates were generated for investigation types such as the Single Scope Background Investigation, the Top Secret Periodic Reinvestigation, the Expanded National Agency Check, etc.
