The Challenge:

Due to a mandate from the Security Executive Agent, federal agencies were required to enroll their cleared population into a “continuous” evaluation system provided by the federal government. The deadline for 100% enrollment of the federal cleared population by January 1, 2021, created a significant challenge for the Department of Energy (DOE). Our DOE client chose the ODNI CES as their provider and partner for this mandated service and Edgewater was tasked to complete the conversion.

The Solution:

Edgewater began working with the ODNI technical team in January 2019 and used a phased approach to establish a plan for the migration of the cleared resources to the new system. This included designing and developing technology solutions to assist in both data and process migration- as well as quality checkpoints to ensure the process went smoothly. This system allowed DOE adjudicative sites to perform “deferred” periodic investigations, thus saving time and money for the department. It supports DOE’s posture in moving toward “continuous vetting” (CV) under the new “Trusted Workforce 2.0” counterintelligence strategy for personnel security across the government.

The Outcome:

In November of 2019, DOE reached 100% enrollment, with over 90,000 active clearance holders enrolled. DOE was the first of 29 departments/agencies, who have opted-in to use the ODNI system, to reach 100% enrollment. With the completion of the first phase, Edgewater then moved to un-enrolling clearance holders further increasing compliance with security and clearance mandates. The client was very pleased with the results and requested Edgewater to continue the enrollment process for the life of the contract.
