We deliver these services at Government facilities and also at remote locations across the country including a purpose built polygraph suite at PRG headquarters in Ashburn, Virginia. Our polygraph examination offices are strategically located to meet contract requirements while reducing employee and applicant travel.
For each prime contract, PRG employs a scheduling team which contacts subjects and gathers necessary information to schedule security interviews and the polygraph examinations.
We employ a cadre of retired federal investigators to serve as background investigators to conduct security interviews, review subject backgrounds and verify and clarify the background information submitted by each subject prior to the polygraph procedure.
PRG employs only federally certified polygraph examiners who conduct the Counterintelligence and Expanded Scope Screening Polygraph Examinations or the Test for Espionage and Sabotage in accordance with DOD policy and Federal guidelines.

We conduct quality control reviews and perform quality assurance assessments on contract polygraph examinations to produce high quality finalized polygraph products that are always completed within timeframe requirements.
Studies and Assessments Services
PRG managers have recruited a large cadre of highly qualified and experienced personnel with specialized law enforcement and border security and public safety skills and can assemble them into multi-person assessment teams which can be deployed to conduct high quality studies and evaluations at home and around the world.
PRG SMEs began conducting studies and assessments for the Department of State under the Global Antiterrorism Assistance (GATA) Program in 2008. Under GATA, PRG deployed SME teams for up to two weeks to participant nations to conduct initial in-country needs assessment as well as periodic program reviews for countries receiving Department of State antiterrorism assistance.
Initial needs assessments conducted by PRG SMES established objective baseline measurements in 25 areas of counterterrorism critical competencies while periodic program reviews measured and evaluated the level of success and gaps found within established counterterrorism programs.
PRG SMEs followed the GATA Program Measurements and Effectiveness System that provided a format for objective statistical and comparative analysis for the participating nation’s progress over time to offer program managers a means to prioritize planned assistance in relation to both threat and need.
PRG SME reporting was used as the basis for developing or modifying multi-year Country Assistance Plans to determine applicable training courses and equipment necessary to implement effective antiterrorism programs. Our SMEs provided vital information that validated program requirements and established a basis for the formal budgeting process.
Today PRG still offers experienced and qualified SME practitioners with broad and deep domain knowledge who are capable of performing comprehensive assessments, program evaluations, surveys and in-depth analysis of air, maritime, and land borders as well as across a full spectrum of law enforcement and public safety disciplines. Our SMEs are all retired border security and law enforcement professionals with a minimum of twenty five years in federal, state or local service who are experienced in and fully capable of operating in any domestic or international environment.
