PSH-11-0039 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

The individual is an employee of a DOE contractor and holds a suspended access authorization.

Exhibit 7. A Local Security Office (LSO) summoned the individual for an interview (PSI) with a personnel security specialist on September 28, 2011. Exhibit 7. After the PSI, the LSO determined that derogatory information existed that cast into doubt the individual’s eligibility for access authorization. The LSO informed the individual of this determination in a letter that set forth the DOE’s security concerns and the reasons for those concerns. Letter from LSO to Individual (November 1, 2011) (Notification Letter); Exhibit 1 (Summary of Security Concerns).
