Default Will Hagel fire security risks among present employes?

You read a story like the one that follows and you see that the Defense Departmet promises a new system will be put in place to detect threats, the question is if there are threats discovered will they be fired or just moved to another agency.
Furthermore, you wonder what the Defense Department is gnoing to do about the company that did the screening. Is the Defense Department going to cancel the contract with that company?

The background for these questions follows:
A Pentagon review of the Sept. 16 mass shooting at the Navy Yard revealed “missed opportunities for intervention” that could have stopped gunman Aaron Alexis from keeping his security clearance and unfettered access to military facilities.
Results of internal probes and an independent review of the case released Tuesday portray a security clearance review system ill-equipped to screen “insider threats” in real time. The review cast blame on Navy officials and the information technology company that employed Alexis.
In response to the reviews, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel called for the implementation of a “continuous evaluation” system that would screen federal employees with access to classified information and sensitive facilities in real time against records that might raise concerns about their state of mind or trustworthiness.
He also called for the creation of an “insider threat management and analytical center.”
