The Atomic tergy Commission is working gout new arrangements ho Department of Defense under which a distinction between "Type At' and "Type B Restricted Data" would be eliminated. Con- sequently, the request concerning the dissemination of "Type B Restricted Data" would have no further meanings upon the conaum- of this new arrangement which is expected to go into on in the near future. go note in your letter that the investigations of applicants for employment with your Agency are conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other governmental investigative agencies. The AEC would normally be able to grant a "Q" clearance to those CIA employees who have been investigated by the FBI upon receipt of additional copies of the investigative reports. Such clearance could be granted without any appreciable delay. it would take approximately sixty to ninety days to obtain background investi- gation and AEC "Q" clearance for those CIA employees who have not been investigated by the FBI.
