Federal Investigations Notice (FIN) 22-01, dated June 30, 2022, published DCSA’s initial, planned rates for Fiscal Year 2024. By publishing the initial rates, it allowed DCSA customers to begin budgeting and planning their resource requirements for FY 2024. Within FIN 22-01, it also noted that the final rates would be published in December 2022. The final FY 2024 rates are now available and are posted in FIN 23-01, "Final FY 2024 Investigations Reimbursable Billing Rates," dated January 30, 2023.
To develop the final FY 2024 rates, DCSA collaborated with the Security Clearance, Suitability/Fitness, and Credentialing community to evaluate policy, operational, and inflationary impacts on future personnel security costs since June 2022. As a result of this thorough evaluation, followed by DoD Comptroller review and approval, DCSA lowered FY 2024 rates for tiered background investigation products by 18 percent and retained all other product and service rates published in FIN 22-01. The 18 percent rate reduction is applied to new Trusted Workforce 2.0 tiered BI products as well as legacy tiered BI products in the event legacy products are still necessary for customers to order in FY 2024.
