Information relating to service providers of the SSA is information that forms part of the broader operational strategy of the agency and therefore as a matter of policy the SSA does not disclose such information. It should however be observed that the SSA is overseen by the Joint Standing Committee on Intelligence (JSCI) and the Inspector General of Intelligence amongst other regulatory bodies.
