As the Department of Defense begins efforts to constrain future defense spending as part of the government-wide push for fiscal austerity, security-cleared professionals are relatively unconcerned about any impacts to their careers.  Only 23 percent of respondents indicated they are extremely concerned about "contract loss" or "loss of contract funding" in 2011; that result was nearly identical when the same question was posed to security-cleared professionals a year ago.   In addition, only 20 percent of respondents were extremely concerned about lower salary increases, lower billing rates or position elimination, which is essentially the same as those who were extremely concerned last year.

"Although federal government budgets continue to be negotiated, defense and intelligence agency professionals with security clearance remain insulated and their career concerns are relatively limited," added Mr. Lesser.  "We continue to see security-cleared government contractors that are prepared to switch employers to further their career and increase their earnings potential.  This is a workforce that is swift to move and is used to continuous change related to budgets, priorities and contracts."
