The Individual is employed by a DOE contractor and has held a DOE access authorization since 2006. DOE Ex. 10. During a routine reinvestigation in connection with the Individual’s security clearance, the Local Security Office (LSO) received potentially derogatory information, which prompted the LSO to refer the Individual to a DOE consultant-psychiatrist (“the DOE Psychiatrist”) for an evaluation. The DOE Psychiatrist evaluated the Individual in September 2011 and issued a report. DOE Ex. 11. After reviewing the Individual’s personnel security file, the LSO informed the Individual in an October 2011 Notification Letter that there existed derogatory information that raised security concerns under 10 C.F.R. § 710.8 (h) (Criterion H). See Notification Letter, October 14, 2011. The Notification Letter also informed the Individual that she was entitled to a hearing before a Hearing Officer in order to resolve the security concerns.
