Abstract: Executive Order 12958, as amended, “Classified National Security Information” authorizes the Information Security Oversight Office to develop standard forms that promote the implementation of the Government's security classification program. These forms promote consistency and uniformity in the protection of classified information.
The Financial Disclosure Report contains information that is used to assist in making eligibility determinations for access to specifically designated classified information pursuant to Executive Order 12968, “Access to Classified Information,” by appropriately trained adjudicative personnel. The data may later be used as part of a review process to evaluate continued eligibility for access to such specifically designated classified information or as evidence in legal proceedings.
The Financial Disclosure Report helps law enforcement entities obtain pertinent information in the preliminary stages of potential espionage and counter terrorism cases.Start Signature
