TSO-1111 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

The administrative review proceeding began with the issuance of a Notification Letter to the Individual. See 10 C.F.R. § 710.21. The letter informed the Individual that information in the possession of the DOE created a substantial doubt concerning his eligibility for a security clearance. Specifically, the Local Security Office (LSO) characterized this information as indicating that the Individual had engaged in unusual conduct which brought his honesty, trustworthiness, and reliability into question, and had been found by a psychologist to meet the criteria for alcohol abuse set forth in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (Text Revision) (DSM-IV-TR)
