Hundreds of positions for geospatial intelligence projects are unfulfilled and the government’s classification requirements are to blame. GEOINT (geospatial intellingence) employers want agencies like the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to make more concerted efforts to carve out work that can be performed by uncleared personnel within their contracts. Instead, they claim the government is requiring cleared employees for projects that involve significant amounts of unclassified work. Companies face some major challenges in meeting this requirement, including the length of time for the clearance to happen and not having enough prospective employees because of it.
