Fee Schedule

Individual Self-Referred Clients are charged at a rate of $180 per hour for all consulting services except for the Security Clearance Q&A Service which has a fixed fee of $90, and the Security Clearance Assessment which has a fixed fee of $180. The Q&A Service and the Security Clearance Assessment are paid in advance at the time of registration and ordering. Upon completion of a Security Clearance Assessment, clients who elect to purchase additional services must pay 60% of the estimated cost at the time ordered and the balance immediately prior to delivery of the work product.

The average range of charges for services varies greatly dependent upon the complexity and number of issues present in a case. A single minor issue will require the least amount of time, one or two moderate issues will take more time, and multiple major issues will require the most time. Some complex cases involving multiple major issues may exceed the average range of charges.

Employer-Referred Clients services are billed to the sponsoring employer, or paid by the client and then reimbursed by the employer, in accordance with terms established between the employer and FEDCAS.

Employers interested in making FEDCAS services available to their employees should contact a FEDCAS Account Manager for information about pricing and payment terms.


FEDCAS is not engaged in rendering legal advice. If legal assistance is required, the services of a competent attorney specializing in security clearance law should be sought. Details regarding methods of service delivery, confidentiality, records retention and destruction, and limitations can be found at the Consulting Agreement.
