In February 1998 the President issued Presidential Decision Directive 61 (PDD-61) designed
to reorganize and improve the counterintelligence program of the U.S. Department of Energy
(Department). Subsequent to the release of PDD-61, the Department developed a
Counterintelligence Implementation Plan (CIP), which included 46 actions to achieve this
On May 26, 1999, the Under Secretary requested that the Office of Inspector General
evaluate the implementation status of the actions included in the CIP. In response to the
Department’s request, we conducted a review at Headquarters and the three largest national
laboratories to determine which of the recommendations in the CIP have been implemented.
