Yea, that's my understanding of it. The modifiers on Investigation depend on what information the investigator is trying to learn.
If I was to use a real-life organization as an example, let's look at the CIA. Their goals and leaders are pretty public, whereas finding information on its members, methods, or sites is a bit more difficult.
So if I wanted to find out what the CIA's goal was, it would be easy to find (just look here
, bottom left block).
You want to know the people in charge, its still easy to find. Just go to the above link, highlight "About CIA" and select "Leadership" and you are greeted with a page listing who holds the top offices.
But if you want to find out who they employ as agents, it is considerably more difficult. At best, you may find some information in public records (poking around on their website didn't offer any clues, to say the least). Their website even goes so far as to say that "[n]either the number of employees nor the size of the Agency's budget can, at present, be publicly disclosed."
By the time I start trying to discern their methodologies and sites, it becomes murky waters at best. Now I may have to start piecing together snippets of stories from multiple sources, while trying to decide which are true and which are just so much disinformation. Are the rumors true that there is a CIA cell operating in a given city, or are they just rumors that the CIA itself started to throw people off? Do they REALLY use torture, or do they just want people to THINK they do so the threat will give prisoners reason to believe it is more than bluff?

I don't have any experience with Global Frequency, but the way you have that organization set up tells me that finding information on what the organization wants to accomplish and who the active members are would be pretty easy. Finding out where they operate, how they pursue their goals and who is ultimately in charge would be a true feat of investigative talent.Edited for clarity.Edit 2: Added quote from CIA website concerning information of its members
