Approved For Release 1999/08/27: CIA- 8-04007A000700120004-8 L 1-'r- v _ . ., MEMORANDUM FOR: Acting Deputy Director (Support) iUIJiC:'I' Estimated Costs of Investigation, Clearance, and Polygraph Actions for Fiscal Year 1960 1. This memorandum is for information only. 2. Complying with the request of the Deputy Director (Support) iii annual reports showing the costa of selected important operations of the office, we are submitting for the first time esti hates of Office of Jccurity costs for (a) Full Field Investigations, (b) Security Clearances, and (c) Polygraph Interrogations. These estimated costs have been compiled separately for each operation and cover the period 1 July 1959 to 30 June 1960. 3. because of the absence of time studies and cost accounts and because of the various degrees of participation in each operation by differdnt components of the office, I should like to point out the estimated quality of these figures. It is also important to mention that these costa do not include e..penaea outside of the Office of Security such as admin- istrative overhead of the DCI, DD/S and Office of Personnel, or non- roicabur ;able costs incurred by GSA and the Office of Logistics. Because of these facts there could be large variances in the estimated figures depending on the assumptions made by the estimator. Any comparison of these figures with those of any other agency should be made with the above facto in mind. 4. The currently estimated costs for full field investigations, :3ecurtty clearances and polygraph interrogations during the Fiscal Year 1960 are as follows, 25X1A1a 25X1A1a a. Full Field Investigations. ~ases, including overt and semi-covert and covert cases, were completed during Fiscal Year 1960. The total estimated cost of these cases approximated for an estimated cost or case of approximately $163.
