PSH-12-0060 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On September 14, 2012, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which he concluded that an individual’s security clearance should be restored.  A Local Security Office suspended the individual’s security clearance due to the individual’s unauthorized use of technology systems, noncompliance with rules pertaining to such systems, and inconsistent statements regarding such incidents, which raised security concerns under Criterion L.  After conducting a hearing and evaluating the documentary and testimonial evidence, the Hearing Officer found that the individual had presented sufficient evidence to resolve these security concerns.  Specifically, he found that the individual had obtained treatment for any underlying condition that led to some of those incidents, and secured training and instituted controls to significantly reduce the likelihood that such incidents will recur.  OHA Case No. PSH-12-0060
