This thesis examines the differences in investigating procedures of the non-Department of Defense and Department of Defense agencies in developing sources that indicate the presence of an issue during a special background investigation. Multivariate analysis of the survey was conducted to examine these differences. The results of this analysis indicate statistically significant differences in the organizational methods used to develop sources of derogatory information which are used in determining eligibility for sensitive compartmented information. This analysis also highlights the most effective and efficient methods of conducting a special background investigation for both organizations. The recommendations address the requirement for continued analysis to further refine the special investigative process thereby yielding greater efficiency and effectiveness in the detection of issue cases.
