    This looks like justification to glut the market with in-experanced
    security people, inorder to drop the rates to within government &
    corprate budgets. If I remember correctly, this is the same
    justification used for the H1B, just 1 year ago. When will the press
    ever learn.

    The current process for completing a TS package runs about 18 months
    (not exact, mind you).  There is a process for completing a package,
    which (in its basic form) consists of Standard Form (SF) 86, finger
    print cards (two sets), DD 1879 (depends), Office of Personnel
    Management (OPM) Cover Sheet.
    We use Electronic Personnel Security Questionnaire (EPSQ) version 2.2
    ( )and for those that have NEVER
    filled out an SF 86, EPSQ is very anal about full names, addresses,
    telephone numbers.
    General process for first timer is, member fills out SF 86, turns in
    to security office, security office validates SF 86, notifies member
    of any corrections (as needed), member corrects (as needed), turns in
    SF 86, conduct pre-screening interview (runs about 1 hours), sign all
    supporting documents, finger print, make four copies of the entire
    package and mail to OPM via registered 1st class mail, wait for
    registered receipt from OPM and now package is considered "OPEN
    STATUS" and set your watches and wait for the results.
