<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(Sufferin' Prius Envy @ May 8 2007, 11:59 PM) [snapback]438058[/snapback]</div> Contractors don't write base security policy. The security officer for the company is repsonsible for ensuring that background checks are conducted. Any company that depends on government contracts would be foolish to be derelict in that responsibility. If a security clearance is required (depending on that base's security policy, a clearance may or may not be required for base access for an employee whose job does not require access to classified material), the actual investigation is does by DoD personnel. Since 9/11, access to military bases has been greatly restricted. I don't know about Fort Dix, but some military bases don't have classified material, weapons systems, etc. on site and thus are less restrictive.
