PSH-13-0034 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On June 13, 2013, a Hearing Officer determined that an individual’s security clearance should not be restored. In reaching this determination, the Hearing Officer found that the individual had not successfully addressed the DOE’s security concerns regarding her finances under criterion (l). Specifically, the Hearing Officer found that the individual’s financial problems resulted primarily from her poor financial decisions, that she had not demonstrated a sufficient pattern of financially responsible behavior, and that the progress that she had made in resolving her indebtedness had been due in part to the assistance of her ex-husband, which was not guaranteed to continue.
