Audit critical of Navy security review system

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials say a draft Defense Department audit criticizes one of the Navyís security review programs for lower-level contractors. But that process was not the one used to evaluate the man who shot dead 12 people Monday at a military complex in Washington.

Aaron Alexis, the 34-year-old information technology contractor involved in the shooting, had a secret security clearance for his job, obtained in 2008. He went through a different, more extensive review.

The Defense Department Inspector General found that a separate system used to review some contractors did not properly check the workers. That program is generally for contractors who donít have security clearances.

Officials described the audit on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss a draft report.
