  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Security Clearance (SC) Q&A Read first before asking questions

    Please find below an accumulation of questions that have featured on some of the many reptitive questions about SC. Maybe by putting them in a stickie and adding when we get new ones we can bat some of the drudgery off. I have given canned answers from what I read on the forum but you know how...
