What is Security Clearance?Staff security vetting is carried out so that people may perform certain jobs or carry out tasks that need a national security clearance. These jobs and tasks are located throughout the Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces, as well as in the private sector dealing with defence related work. In addition, a number of other government departments and organisations such as Police Authorities require Security Clearance.How do Burtonwood Generators & Switchgear Services Ltd get a Security Clearance?The initial process involves a security clearance sponsor. Individuals and companies cannot ask for a security clearance unless they are sponsored, and generally will not be sponsored unless contracted (or are in the process of being contracted) to work on one or more specific MOD classified projects or establishments.For large contracts, an officer in the Defence Procurement Agency (DPA) or Defence Logistics Organisation (DLO) - typically a Project Officer is the sponsor. For staff in sub-contracted organisations, sponsorship is provided through the prime contractor.Why does MOD insist on having sponsors for security clearances?A security clearance provides a certain level of assurance at a point in time, as to an individual's suitability to have trusted access to sensitive information or establishments.It does not provide a guarantee of future reliability, and all security clearances are kept under review to ensure that the necessary level of assurance is maintained. This review is carried out by Government Departments and Government-sponsored contractors, who are responsible for the oversight and aftercare of individuals, granted a security clearance.The main types of checks and clearances are listed below and are processed by the following Governments agencies:. Defence Vetting Agency (DVA). National Security Vetting. Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
