PSH-11-0025 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

The individual currently is employed by a DOE contractor, and that contractor has requested that he receive a DOE security clearance. Based on issues contained in the individual’s security file, the Local Security Office (LSO) conducted a Personnel Security Interview with the individual in August 2011 (the 2011 PSI, DOE Ex. 8). In September 2011, a DOE-consultant psychologist (the DOE-consultant Psychologist) evaluated the individual, and memorialized her findings in a Psychological Evaluation Report (the Report, DOE Ex. 6). In October 2011, the LSO issued a Notification Letter to the individual, together with a Summary of Security Concerns (Enclosure 2) setting forth the information that created a substantial doubt about the individual’s eligibility to hold a DOE security clearance. (DOE Ex. 1). Specifically, the LSO states that a DOE-consultant Psychologist evaluated the individual and concluded that he met the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, IVth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR) criteria for Bipolar II Disorder, Recurrent Major Depressive Episodes with Hypo-manic Episodes.
