DOE Order 472.2, Personnel Security, sets forth reporting requirements for all DOE employees, contractors, and others involved in applying for or holding a DOE access authorization.
Reporting must be done verbally within two business days of the event followed by a written confirmation within three additional business days to the Office of Personnel and Facility Clearances and Classification (OPFCC), to include:
Notification should be made to the DOE cognizant personnel security office or the facility security officer, as appropriate, immediately after any approach or contact by an individual seeking unauthorized access to classified matter or Special Nuclear Material (SNM). If such an approach or contact is made while on foreign travel, the notification must be made to a U.S. Department of State official at the local United States Embassy or Consulate with a request that the U.S. Department of State report the incident to the Director, Office of Environment, Health, Safety and Security, at DOE Headquarters. This requirement is in addition to any similar reporting requirements implemented under other DOE directives.
