TSO-1006 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

The individual works for a Department of Energy (DOE) contractor and holds a DOE access authorization, now in suspension. He provided inconsistent information on four separate occasions to the Local Security Office (LSO) concerning his diagnosis and treatment for mental health issues: in his responses to two Questionnaires for National Security Positions (QNSPs) in 2003 and 2009, during a background investigation interview conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 2006, and during a Personnel Security Interview (PSI) in 2010. The LSO could not resolve these discrepancies to its satisfaction, so it referred the individual to a DOE consultant psychiatrist for an agency-sponsored evaluation. The DOE psychiatrist prepared a written report (Report) setting forth the results of that evaluation and sent it to the LSO. Exhibit 4. Based on this Report and the rest of the individual’s personnel security file, the LSO determined that derogatory information existed that cast into doubt the individual’s eligibility for access authorization.
