The first point, as Ms. Belanger said previously, is that those contracted resources didn't have access to the data, full stop. I appreciate the concern with clearances.
The second point I would make is that it sounds like this is a scenario where somebody was allowed to begin work pending the review. I think, as we get back to you with information, that it could have a period of days. We should know now whether or not they passed the security check.
The first thing that should set your mind at ease is that these contracted resources did not have access to the data, full stop. They built the tool. Second, what was the period of time for this pending...or waiver? It could be days or weeks, and we would have known the answer by now, whether or not they passed the clearance.
I think that coming back to the committee with that information should address the concern.
