TSO-1108 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

The individual is an employee of a DOE contractor and held an access authorization until it was recently suspended. During a routine reinvestigation of the individual, he informed an Office of Personnel Management (OPM) investigator on February 16, 2011, that he had not filed federal or state income tax returns for several years. Exhibit 6 at 13. A Local Security Office (LSO) summoned the individual for an interview (PSI) with a personnel security specialist on June 23, 2011. Exhibit 9. The LSO ultimately determined that derogatory information existed that cast into doubt the individual’s eligibility for access authorization. The LSO informed the individual of this determination in a letter that set forth the DOE’s security concerns and the reasons for those concerns. I will hereinafter refer to this letter as the Notification Letter.
