We need to establish one Background investigation for all departments within the federal governemnt. The amount of money spent on redundant invesigations could be utilized in other areas. As an example, I had a current, valid Top Secret Clearance from the US Army, and yet had to get a Background Investigation from CBP before I could report to work. The scope of a TS cleareance far exceeds a Background Investigation. I know there are many other Fed workers in the same situation.
