Security Compliance Review (SCR) Program

  • The SCR Program was developed to aid the director for security in his oversight responsibilities and to ensure that Department and bureau security programs comply with federal regulations, directives, and Department orders and policies.
  • The Plans, Program and Compliance Division within OSY plans and coordinates all SCR review activities and develops reports for the OSY director and leadership responsible for the areas reviewed. The reports contain findings, recommendations, and best practices.
  • The SCR Program includes policy and procedure driven checklists in areas such as physical, information, personnel, industrial, and communications security. Other areas reviewed under the SCR Program are Foreign Access Management, sensitive compartmented information, and Emergency Management.

SCR Goals

  • Ensure the working environment is as safe and secure as possible for Department employees, assets and information by providing advice, assistance, and recommendations.
  • Mitigate security issues before they occur.
  • Document security deficiencies and non-compliance identified during reviews and require resolution.
  • Make determinations to evaluate if security policies need updates or changes.
  • Document best practices and share them across the Department.
  • Prepare Department security programs for external reviews by entities such as the Government Accountability Office, the Office of the Inspector General, and the Office of Personnel Management.
