Alan Johnson: The Department contracts with a service provider for front desk and guarding services. It is a requirement of the contract for the service provider to ensure that their staff are fully trained to carry out their role. The training incorporates all those skills needed to provide counter measures against unauthorised access or threat to the departmental assets.
Other staff are trained to carry out a number of checks as part of the normal departmental recruitment procedures. These checks aim to positively establish identity and obtain background information on the subject by taking up references.
