ITAR Clearance & ITAR Application for Government Contractors

A government facility security clearance (FCL) is provided to a defense contractor as a result of a federal government contract requiring performance on a classified effort.  If your company does not possess the requisite ITAR facility security clearance levels to conduct foreign traffic operations, you can end up being disqualified for the award. At Watson & Associates, ITAR application attorneys can provide detailed guidance and experience to help you to apply for, and maintain your government facility clearance.
