PSH-12-0113 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On December 18, 2012, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which he determined that an individual’s DOE access authorization should not be granted.  The Individual had a history of two alcohol alcohol-related arrests.   In addition, A DOE Psychologist found that the Individual would consume four to six alcoholic beverages during an evening on a weekly basis.  The Psychologist accordingly concluded that the individual habitually used alcohol to excess.  The Hearing Officer found that, since the Individual continued to drink excessive amounts of alcohol, he had not mitigated any of these security concerns at the hearing.
