Cleared Jobs in the Department of Treasury
When we think of the agencies that make up the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) the first ones that come to mind are the CIA, NSA, NRO, and five DOD components, right? There are sixteen agencies that officially make up the IC and in addition to the previously mentioned they are: DIA, DOE, DHS, DOS, DEA, FBI, NGIA and ……. the Department of Treasury. What? Treasury is not an intelligence agency you say, so why is it included in the IC?
The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI) safeguards the U.S. financial system against illicit use and combats against rogue nations, terrorist facilitators, weapons of mass destruction proliferators, money launderers, drug kingpins, and other national security threats. Within the TFI resides the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (OIA) which is responsible for the receipt, analysis, collation, and dissemination of foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence information.
Cleared Accountants, Budget Analysts and More
As a result of these functions, there is a small army of accountants, budget analysts, contract specialists, intelligence analysts, legal staff, and IT specialists who require security clearances to access the classified source data needed to perform these functions. Additionally, there are many other bureaus within Treasury that also required cleared personnel, so when looking for a position you might want to consider jobs in: Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau; Bureau of Engraving & Printing; Office of the Comptroller of the Currency; Financial Crimes Enforcement Network ; Office of the Inspector General; Internal Revenue Service; and the U.S. Mint.
