Applicants seeking a Security Clearance receive written questions or requests for further information from the government. A proper response on the applicants part requires preparation of a response to be sent to the government.

The applicants written responses can be used against them by the government at a later point in time.  Poorly-drafted answers or non-responsive answers can create red flags with your application.
