Each site provides additional guidance for efforts that require contractors with TS SCI clearances. These sites are used by more than just NRO and NSA to advertise business opportunities.

Election Security Information Needs – The IC supports a whole-of-government approach to prevent foreign adversaries from using U.S. elections to undermine confidence in our democracy, sow divisions in our society and promote their agendas. If you are involved in elections, please report any potential indications that foreign actors may be interfering in U.S. elections to the FBI or DHS. An overview of foreign threats to U.S. elections, along with a list of potential indicators of foreign adversary activities, can be found at: DNI NCSC Elections Brochure
