Every entity, both government and private contractors, that deal with classified materials has a Facility Security Officer (FSO) or several on staff. The FSO’s job is to ensure that all steps and procedures to maintain security, both with material and personnel, are followed exactly. The DOD (Department of Defense) recently reminded FSO’s that they can only look up information in the JPAS system as allowed by law.
March 27, 2015 – DOD Notice to FSOs
JPAS users are prohibited from looking up subjects of whom they have no need-to-know or authority.
Attention! Do NOT Look Up or View Your Own Record in JPAS
I have been handling security clearance cases of all types for several years. If FSOs have employees who have concerns about their clearance, please feel free to have the employees contact me directly or by telephone at (256) 713-0221.
