The report on NISP will guide the implementation of a new government-wide program to handle all elements of security, including personnel, physical, and information security.
"The approval of the report on NISP by the President is a tremendous milestone for the government and the defense industry," said Don Fuqua Don Fuqua (born August 20, 1933) is a U.S. Democratic politician.
He was born in Jacksonville, Florida. He graduate from the University of Florida in 1957. He was elected as a Democrat to the United States House of Representatives from Florida and served from January 3, 1963 , president of Aerospace Industries Association (AIA AIA - Application Integration Architecture ).
"The implementation of NISP will result in a much more streamlined and efficient way to safeguard government security information. The defense industry is ready and eager to visit with the implementation process," Fuqua added.

Concerned about the complexity and cost of the government's multiple security programs, AIA's Industrial Security Committee began in 1986 to develop a program to standardize stan·dard·ize

Early in this effort, the committee surveyed 14 member companies and identified a number of problems, such as employees who had to complete an average of eight separate but similar clearance forms for six different clearing agencies to receive their clearances. Also, redundant government inspections of these companies were conducted by 12 government departments and agencies.
The work of AIA's Industrial Security Committee eventually evolved into a government/industry task force of 260 people--which includes a number of ASIS members--who developed the NISP blueprint blueprint, white-on-blue photographic print, commonly of a working drawing used during building or manufacturing.

NISP also provides for a policy advisory committee (NISPPAC) with representatives from the government and the defense industry.
NISPPAC will provide advice on all issues involving NISP policy.
NISP is expected to take two to five years to be fully implemented, although some elements have already been put into effect.
