Implement "Security Tenure"

Military, Federal, and Contractor employees with several years of service in billets requiring a security clearance based on a SSBI should be exempt from the five-year reinvestigation requirement. Instead, these employees can fillout an online "change form" with address changes, marital status changes, foreign travel, etc. on an annual basis or at no more than five year intervals, on a secure US Government website. It's pointless to waste costly manpower resources doing background reinvestigations on an employee who has a decade or more of service with an active high-level security clearance and no major security infractions.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
