Per the earlier link for AGSVA:
The Australian Government Security Vetting Agency (AGSVA) is located within
the Department of Defence and is the central agency for the processing,
evaluating and granting of security clearances for the Commonwealth. The AGSVA
conducts clearances for the majority of Government under a fee-for-service
All clearances granted by AGSVA are portable across all agencies (excluding
exempt agencies). This single, consistent approval has improved the clearance
- providing one clearance that is effective across government;
- removing inconsistencies between previous clearance processes; and
- increasing the efficiency for all parties.
So the answer is yes, the act is more together.
