This Initial Agency Decision involves a whistleblower complaint filed by Mr. Clint Olson (also referred to as the complainant or the individual) under the Department of Energy (DOE) Contractor Employee Protection Program, 10 C.F.R. Part 708. The complainant is an employee of BWXT Pantex (BWXT), the Management and Operations Contractor at the DOE’s Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas. From July 1999 until November 2004, he was employed as a counter-intelligence officer (CIO) at the plant. On March 15, 2004, he filed a complaint of retaliation against BWXT with the Manager of the Employee Concerns Program (Employee Concerns Manager) at the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration Service Center (NNSASC). In his complaint, the individual contends that he made certain disclosures to officials of BWXT and the DOE, and that BWXT retaliated against him in response to these disclosures.
