Awareness Is The Key Foreign Interactions Office (FIO) DOE requires foreign national access to be documented and tracked. The FIO manages the approval process for unclassified foreign national access to DOE information, programs, and technologies, and SNL sites.
Awareness Is The Key Foreign Nationals A foreign national is any person who is not a citizen of the United States. Lawful Permanent Residents are not U.S. citizens and are not exempt from the SNL FIO approval process.
Awareness Is The Key Flow Down Requirements DOE O 142.3, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments, states: The contractor is responsible for flowing down the requirements of this Contractor Requirements Document (CRD) to subcontractors at any tier to the extent necessary to ensure the contractors compliance with the requirements….the contractor must not unnecessarily or imprudently flow down requirements to subcontractors.
Awareness Is The Key Consequences for Non- Compliance Providing a foreign national with access without prior approval from SNL FIO may result in: –Infraction –Disciplinary action –Cancellation of the SNL Contract
Awareness Is The Key Foreign National Access Access: Circumstances or actions involving foreign nationals (especially pre-arranged interactions) that result in the passing of DOE information or technologies to a foreign national and/or granting entry to DOE/SNL sites. Examples of access: Pre-arranged face-to-face meetings Pre-arranged video conferences Access to SNL cyber/computer resources
Awareness Is The Key Remember... There is required training: –Export Control Training (EC100) –Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA100) Foreign National Request (FNR) Security Plan (SP) –Before providing uncleared foreign national access the appropriate Sandia contact must have prior approval from SNL FIO.
Awareness Is The Key Exceptions Documentation and approval from the SNL FIO is not required if: Access occurs at an event that is accessible by the general public and the DOE information is releasable to the general public (unclassified unlimited release). Access or exchange of information occurs via or telephone. Access or exchange of information occurs via video conference and the DOE information is releasable to the general public (unclassified unlimited release). Note : The above stipulation applies regardless of whether information is being gathered from or contributed by the foreign national.
Awareness Is The Key Exceptions Continued Information being accessed is Work for Others (WFO) and does not involve access to DOE information, programs, technologies, or DOE sites. Access occurs at, and is sponsored by, another DOE facility, and that facility has obtained the necessary approvals. Access involves foreign national delivery personnel under the following conditions: –The foreign national is not accessing limited or more restricted areas. –The foreign national is fully escorted by a Q- or L-cleared Member of the Workforce who is a U.S. citizen. If the foreign national is not fully escorted, the access must be in compliance with the requirements for the location of the access.
Awareness Is The Key Responsibilities The contractor and subcontractor must promptly notify their Sandia Delegated Representative (SDR), or appropriate SNL contact, to obtain the required approval from SNL FIO prior to providing a foreign national access to: –SNL facilities –DOE information, programs, and technologies when foreign national is not visiting DOE/SNL facilities
Awareness Is The Key Scenario Q. Do you have to obtain approval from SNL FIO if you want a foreign national to work with you on a DOE project that is unclassified? A. Yes. You need to notify your SDR before allowing any foreign national access to DOE/SNL information. Your SDR will go through our FNR Decision Wizard to determine if an FNR is required.

Awareness Is The Key Badge Overview New federal credential Badge Responsibilities Consequences regarding lost, stolen, and forgotten badges Unreturned badges Reminders Questions
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential All Members of the Workforce who have a security clearance will be required to obtain a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Federal Credential. Policies and procedures regarding issuance to sub-contractors are being developed. The federal credential will replace your current Standard DOE Badge.
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential The new Federal Credentials are a result of the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). The directives key requirements is the PIV standard. –Two phases: PIV-I and PIV-II.
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential PIV-I –Establishes a process for personal identity proofing, registration, and issuance of security badges for physical access to secure facilities. PIV-II –Will supplement the PIV-I process by requiring the issuance of a new federal credential, which will include smart card technology. The new card will eventually provide identity verification for both physical and logical (cyber) access to secure facilities.
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential Credentialing efforts are being implemented in each of the 637 agencies in the U.S. Government. Individuals from all federal agencies that visit/work at a Sandia site will use their federal credential to gain access.
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential The credential may be used at other federal sites. All credentials will have start and end dates and will be valid for 5 years. This is a centralized effort across all U.S. Government agencies. Replacement of a federal credential will cost Sandia a minimum of $50.00 and will take 2 to 4 weeks to replace.
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential The federal credentials WILL NOT use colors to indicate clearance level. Color differentiation on the credentials will be used to indicate the type of individual, as follows: »Green stripecontractor »White (no stripe)federal employee »Blue stripeforeign national
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential Only DOE agency individuals will have an indication of clearance level on their credential, in the form of a Q or L printed on the face of the credential. –This includes all employees, consultants, and subcontractors of the DOE contractor-operated sites, such as Sandia.
Awareness Is The Key NEW Federal Credential New policies are being evaluated by DOE and Sandia as to whether vouching will still be allowed. Additional guidance will be necessary to verify clearance levels at meetings. Until all individuals receive their federal credentials, Sandia will be in an especially vulnerable period because of possible confusion due to the different color coding scheme of the Federal Credential.
Awareness Is The Key Badge Responsibilities Your Badge MUST be returned when: –When you terminate. –When you no longer require a clearance. –When you leave on extended leave of 90 consecutive calendar days or more. –When your access authorization will not be required.
Awareness Is The Key Badge Responsibilities REMINDER: –Your badge should NOT be used for personal identification outside of Sandia premises. –Exceptions: SNL Federal Credit Union located on KAFB Gaining access onto to KAFB
Awareness Is The Key Badge Responsibilities As of February 1, 2007, Sandia contractors/consultants are held accountable for: –Multiple lost, forgotten, and stolen badges. –Unreturned security badges.
Awareness Is The Key Badge Responsibilities All badges are accountable items and the property of the U.S. Government. –Contracting companies/consultants are responsible and accountable for ensuring that their employees properly protect, handle, and return badges. –In the case of forgotten badges, the badge holder should attempt to retrieve his/her security badge before attempting to obtain a replacement. –An individual will not be able to obtain any further badging services until the badge is accounted for.

Awareness Is The Key Clearance Office Overview Personnel Security Clearances (Access Authorizations) Contractor Pre-Processing Investigation Checks DOE Requirements –DOE Drug Testing Requirement –Termination of DOE Security Clearance Personnel Security Clearance Office Contacts FSO Workbook Overview –Contractor Clearance Forms Review –Clearance Office FAQ Sheet Review
Awareness Is The Key Personnel Security Clearance (Access Authorization) Personnel security clearances authorize individuals access to classified information or matter, or Special Nuclear Material (SNM). Personnel security clearances are requested when the duties of a position requires access to classified information or matter, or SNM. Personnel security clearance applicants will be subject to Federal background investigations and must meet eligibility requirement for access to classified information or matter. Contractors to Sandia should submit applicants whose background offers the best prospect of obtaining a security clearance.
Awareness Is The Key Personnel Security Clearance The average processing times for personnel security clearances range from months. An individuals active personnel security clearance must not be used as a determining factor for hiring, entering into a consultant agreement, or awarding a subcontract. Unless otherwise stipulated, the contractor will not be required to reimburse Sandia for Sandia costs associated with processing the contractors applicants or employees for personnel security clearances.
Awareness Is The Key Contractor Pre-Processing Investigation Verification When an initial personnel security clearance is required, the contractor must conduct the following checks (as appropriate) to establish the individuals job qualifications and access authorization suitability before submitting the access authorization request to Sandia National Laboratories: 1. A credit check 2. Verification of a high school degree or diploma or a degree or diploma granted by an institution of higher learning within the past 5 years
Awareness Is The Key Contractor Pre-Processing Investigation Verification 3.Contacts with listed references 4.Contacts with listed employers for the past 3 years (excluding employment of less than 60 working days duration, part-time employment, and craft/union employment) 5.Local law enforcement checks when such checks are not prohibited by state or local law, statute, or regulation, and when the individual has resided in the jurisdiction where the contractor is located
Awareness Is The Key 6.Verification of Citizenship (recently updated on form) How to properly verify citizenship 7.Use of illegal drugs and/ or illegally used controlled drugs within last twelve months (recently added to form) Contractor Pre-Processing Investigation Verification
Awareness Is The Key Contractor Pre-Processing Investigation Verification The cost associated with conducting a Contractor Pre-Processing Investigation Verification is basic overhead cost of doing business on government contracts. Thus, Sandia can not bear the cost of background screenings as a direct cost or line item under any type of Sandia contract. The cost for obtaining a background screening is minimal (background screening companies can be located on the internet and most typically charge less than $50/person).
Awareness Is The Key New DOE Drug Testing Requirement All employees and contractors that require a security clearance (Q or L) and all employees and contractors in positions that currently have security clearances are considered to be in Testing Designated Positions which means they are subject to applicant, random, and for cause drug testing.
Awareness Is The Key DOE Drug Testing Matrix Negative drug test results are required by DOE for the indicated clearance statuses below:
Awareness Is The Key Termination of DOE Security Clearance DOE requires the SNL Clearance Office to terminate an individuals access authorization by providing DOE F , Security Termination Statement, which is completed by the employee and manager whenever any of the following occur: –Employment by the contractor is terminated. –An access authorization is no longer required. –The individual is on a leave of absence or on extended leave and will not require access to classified information or matter, or SNM, for 90 consecutive working days. –Access to classified information or matter, or SNM, is no longer required due to transfer to a position not requiring such access.
Awareness Is The Key Terminations –The individual leaves for foreign travel, employment, assignment, education, or residence of more than 3 months duration, not involving official U.S. Government business. This requirement applies even if the individual remains employed by the contractor. –Security Termination Statements are due within two days of the date of termination, or within two days from the date that it is known the clearance is no longer required. –They must be signed by the person who is terminating. If a signature is not obtained, please include an explanation as to why.
Awareness Is The Key Terminations SEC225, Termination Briefing, must be completed when individual is terminating. Include verification that SEC225 has been completed when submitting the Security Termination Statement by providing the clearance office the Contractor Administered Training form, or the training certificate from TEDS®. Termination Statements and Debriefing forms can be faxed.
Awareness Is The Key Clearance Office FAQ Sheet Review The Clearance Office has prepared a Clearance Office FAQ Sheet to help you successfully meet your clearance processing needs. Please refer to the FSO Website
Awareness Is The Key Objectives of Training Provide information on: –Expanded new drug testing requirements –Current Testing Designated Positions (TDP) –Substance abuse policies and regulations –Drug-testing process –Consequences of a positive result –Opportunities for assistance –Benefits and contacts
Awareness Is The Key Secretary of Energy Bodmans Decision Why - The change in policy is the result of a recent memorandum from Energy Secretary Bodman directing DOE sites to begin random drug testing for all positions that require access authorizations. Decision - based on a DOE Task Force Review of the Departmental Personnel Security Program completed in February 2007, and a desire to ensure the safety and security of workers, DOE sites, and surrounding communities, Bodman said in the memorandum.
Awareness Is The Key Secretary of Energy Bodmans Decision I have determined that all Federal and contractor positions that require a security clearance (Q or L) and all employees in positions that currently have security clearances have the potential to significantly affect the environment, public health and safety, or national security.
Awareness Is The Key New Drug Testing Requirements Pre-employment and clearance applicants. New Testing Designated Positions (TDP) include any Member of the Workforce who holds an L or Q clearance will be tested at a 30% random sampling rate. –Nov. 1, 2007, DOE stopped accepting clearance request packages without drug testing results. –Includes initial clearances and reinstatements.
Awareness Is The Key New Drug Testing Requirements Clearance applicants who have used illegal drugs during the 12 months prior to completing their Federal Questionnaire for National Security Positions will be disqualified from consideration until they can demonstrate 12 consecutive months of non- use.
Awareness Is The Key Current Testing Designated Positions General applicants to SNL Reasonable Suspicion Post accident in mandated programs Positions in which a Member of the Workforce would, if impaired, pose a special risk to others, to national security, or to the environment. Special Program Testing –Human Reliability Program –Commercial Drivers License (CDL) holders –Crane and Hoist Operators Return-to-Duty and Follow-Up
Awareness Is The Key Special Program Testing –Human Reliability Program (HRP), tested at 100 percent annual rate. –Crane and Hoist (CAH), tested at 100 percent annual rate. –Commercial Driver License (CDL), tested at 50 percent annual rate.
Awareness Is The Key Reasonable Suspicion Reasonable suspicion must be based on an articulable belief that an employee uses illegal drugs, drawn from particularized facts and reasonable inferences from those facts. Such a belief may be based upon, among other things: –Observable phenomena, such as direct observation of: The use or possession of illegal drugs. The physical symptoms of being under the influence of drugs. –A pattern of abnormal conduct or erratic behavior.
Awareness Is The Key Reasonable Suspicion Arrest for a conviction of a drug related offense, or the identification of the individual as the focus of a criminal investigation into illegal drug possession use, or trafficking. Information that is either provided by a reliable and credible source or is independently corroborated. Evidence that an employee has tampered with a drug test. Temperature of the urine specimen is outside the range of degrees centigrade or degrees Fahrenheit. On-site donors must be accompanied to the alcohol testing/specimen collections site in Health Services Building 831.
Awareness Is The Key Post-Accident Drug Testing for Special Programs Required for a reportable accident involving a commercial motor vehicle onsite or on a highway interstate or intrastate commerce in which: –A fatality occurs. –The driver receives a citation and the accident involved: Bodily injury resulting in immediate medical treatment. Disabling damage requiring vehicle to be towed.
Awareness Is The Key CDL and CAH Post Accident Test as soon as possible, within 2 hours (no later than 8 hours) for alcohol and within 32 hours for controlled substances, document if not conducted. Driver is to remain readily available for testing until completed or a decision is made otherwise. Post-accident information cards and drug and alcohol testing forms are provided to drivers. Accident notification process goes through SNLs Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
Awareness Is The Key Return to Duty and Follow Up Conducted after a Department of Transportation (DOT) drug/alcohol violation and evaluation of a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) prior to resuming safety- sensitive functions.
Awareness Is The Key The Process for New TDPs Verbal notifications are made to randomly selected Members of the Workforce during operational hours. A selected person must report to a designated collection site within two hours of receipt of the call. Verbal notification will include directions to the nearest collection center. Such centers are being established at SNL/NM and SNL/CA, and at nearby government or private medical facilities for other Sandia sites.
Awareness Is The Key
The Process for New TDPs Out-of-town clearance holders will have 24 hours to report to a designated collection site. Failure to report to an approved clinic the day of notification, or refusal to provide a specimen, will result in measures equal to those for a positive drug test. If a notified Member of the Workforce has a valid, verified excuse for not being able to report for testing, his or her name will be returned to the random selection database. This may include being on travel or vacation, or being out ill, at the time of notification.
Awareness Is The Key The Process Urine specimens will be sent to a federally certified private laboratory for assay. If a lab result indicates the presence of drugs in a specimen, the clearance holder will have an opportunity to discuss the result with a Medical Review Officer (MRO). The MRO will determine whether the result is reported as either positive or negative. As part of the testing process, a selected Member of the Workforce will have an opportunity to report the use of prescription medications or other substances if the result is positive.
Awareness Is The Key The Process The immediate consequences of an MRO-confirmed positive drug test include: –Individuals badge being confiscated by Personnel Security. –Individual removed from his/her TDP duties. –Other disciplinary actions, which can include termination, would follow due-process procedures. –A contractor whose result is confirmed as positive must be removed from the performance of the Sandia contract immediately.
Awareness Is The Key The Process – Split Sample Per 10 CFR 707, Workplace Substance Abuse Programs at DOE Sites, Section , Action pursuant to a determination of illegal drug use: –An individual who has been notified of a positive test result may request a retest of the same sample at the same or another certified laboratory. –The individual must bear the costs of transportation and/or testing of the specimen. Sandia will inform Members of the Workforce of their right to request a retest under the provisions of this paragraph.
Awareness Is The Key The Process Members of the Workforce will be tested for the following –Marijuana (THC) –Cocaine –Opiates –Phencyclidine (PCP) –Amphetamines, including methamphetamines Note : Some prescription medications fall in these categories; illegally using prescription medications will result in positive test result.
Awareness Is The Key Key Points Summary A recent DOE decision requires random drug testing of all Members of the Workforce who have Q or L clearances. 30% of the cleared Sandia population will be randomly selected and tested each year. Notifications to randomly selected Members of the Workforce will begin on October 1, This policy change is the result of a DOE determination that all workers who require security clearances have the potential to significantly affect the environment, public health and safety, or national security.
Awareness Is The Key Key Points Summary Once notified, a Member of the Workforce will report to the nearest certified testing facility and provide a urine specimen within two hours of receiving notification. Out-of-town clearance holders will have 24 hours to report to the nearest collection center to provide a urine specimen. Selection does not change the odds that someone will be selected in the future. Consequences of a verified-positive drug test may include termination.
Awareness Is The Key Urine Specimen Collection Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form (CCF) used to document process. Instructions printed on back of donors copy of CCF. Participant: –Will need to provide photo ID at collection site. –Will be asked to remove outer garments, empty and display pockets, and leave bag/pack/briefcase outside the restroom. –Will be instructed to rinse hands prior to specimen collection. –Must attempt to provide specimen immediately upon arrival.
Awareness Is The Key Urine Specimen Collection Given privacy in the restroom, unless observed urine is required (e.g., temperature out of range, evidence of tampering). Individual instructed to collect 45mLs urine in collection container. Sample checked for temperature and appearance. Sample split into two containers and sealed and initialed while individual is present. CCF is signed by everyone who handles the sample, specimen shipped to testing laboratory.
Awareness Is The Key Laboratory Analysis Two Steps –Screening –Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) Confirmation Split specimen –Bottle A – Owned by employer –Bottle B – Owned by employee Only drug-testing laboratories approved as meeting the Health and Human Services (HHS) laboratory certification are used.
Awareness Is The Key Problems in Drug Testing Insufficient urine (shy bladder) –Donor urged to drink up to 40oz fluid in up to a 3 hour period and provide sufficient amount. –Physician makes determination if medical condition exists. Lab results indicating a violation. –Drug use, substitution, or adulteration.
Awareness Is The Key Review of Drug Test Results Interview with MRO is conducted for non- negative tests. Individual has 72 hours to request a test of a split specimen. Circumstances without an interview. –Employee declines opportunity to discuss test.
Awareness Is The Key Prohibitions for Controlled Substances Use of any drug (except under the direction of a licensed medical practitioner and only if he/she has advised the driver that the drug will NOT adversely affect the Member of the Workforces ability to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle) Testing positive for drugs Refusal to take a required test
Awareness Is The Key What is a Refusal? A refusal is a Positive test and occurs when the individual: –Fails to appear within specified time. –Fails to remain at the testing site until the testing process is complete. –Fails to provide: A urine specimen for drug testing. Enough urine for drug testing.
Awareness Is The Key What is a Refusal? In the case of a directly observed or monitored collection in a drug test: –Fails to permit the observation or monitoring of his/her provision of the specimen. –Fails or declines taking a second drug test when directed by an employer or collector.
Awareness Is The Key What is a Refusal? Fails to undergo a medical examination or evaluation as part of: –The verification process for drug testing. –Shy bladder procedures for drug testing. –Insufficient breath procedures for alcohol testing. Fails to cooperate with any part of the testing process. MRO reports verified adulterants or substituted result.
Awareness Is The Key Consequences The immediate consequences of a confirmed positive drug test include: –The individuals badge is confiscated and the person being removed from his or her TDP duties. –Other disciplinary actions would follow, including possible termination.
Awareness Is The Key Consequences (continued) –Contractors will promptly be removed from the performance of the Sandia contract. –Failure to report to a testing center within indicated time frame of notification, or refusal to provide a specimen, will result in measures equal to those for a positive drug test. –Time away from work may be vacation time or personal leave time if such is available; otherwise it will be considered leave of absence without pay.
Awareness Is The Key Frequently Asked Questions Will you test positive if you are around folks who smoke pot or crack? Do over-the-counter (OTC) medicines cause a positive drug tests? How accurate is a drug test?
Awareness Is The Key Frequently Asked Questions Will I test positive if Im taking a prescribed controlled substance? The answer is two fold: –There are certain cut off levels that are used in testing, so it depends on the amount detected. –The MRO is to review all non-negative tests and verify if there is a legitimate reason for a person to have a positive test.
Awareness Is The Key Frequently Asked Questions If I substitute someone elses urine and get caught – will I be in trouble? If I eat (or drink) a hemp product will I test positive for marijuana?
