Facility Clearance Portal is provided by Secure Defense Consulting® Incorporated as an information

resource to those companies seeking a Confidential, Secret, or Top Secret facility security

clearance (a.k.a facility clearance, or FCL).

A facility clearance enables a company or organization to work on contracts that involve access to

classified national security information (called classified contracts).

The procedures and requirements involved in the facility clearance process can be mystifying to

companies new to classified contracts. As an antidote to the incomplete and misleading information

regarding facility security clearances that is in circulation on the World Wide Web, please see our menu

at the left for accurate information and answers to frequently-asked questions. If you would like

assistance with the process of applying for a facility clearance, please contact Secure Defense

Consulting® Incorporated. We're easy to reach and the first discussion is free of charge.
