Reserve Officer Retains Security Clearance after Misuse of Gov IT System.

WASHINGTON, DC – Reserve Officer received a Letter of Intent (LOI), from the Service’s Central Adjudication Facility, to revoke security clearance based upon Guideline E – Personal Conduct; and Guideline M – Misuse of Information Technology System (accessing pornographic Web sites on a government computer on a number of occasions, for which the officer also received NJP). Assistance provided by our firm in responding to the LOI, demonstrating “whole person concept” – to balance out relatively isolated instances of misconduct – was sufficient for officer to retain clearance without necessity of appearing before an Administrative Judge and further administrative action, thereby permitting officer to retain clearance that was necessary for continued employment with defense contractor in civilian sector as well as for Reserve duty.
