SAFEGUARDING CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES FOR CLASSIFIED NATIONAL SECURITY INFORMATION AND SENSITIVE UNCLASSIFIED INFORMATION
|Publication Date:||29 August 1997|
This order applies to:
a. All FAA employees, military, civilian, and contractor personnel who handle or otherwise are required to have access to classified national security information and data, regardless of duty station, location, or position. The actions pertaining to cleared contractors who utilize classified national security information in the performance of contracts are addressed in paragraph 444 of this order.
b. FAA personnel collocated on military bases, in embassies, or in contractor facilities. Problems in compliance which result from either conflicting priorities or constraints imposed by the non-FAA authority having security cognizance for the facility, installation, or activity where an FAA employee or organizational element is located shall be referred to the appropriate FAA security office for resolution. If the discrepancy concerns requirements of the non-FAA authority that are more stringent than the requirements of this order, the requirements of the non-FAA authority shall take precedence. If, however, the requirements of the non-FAA authority are less stringent than the requirements of this order, this order shall be followed by all FAA personnel and organizational elements. If the matter cannot be resolved at the FAA security office level, it shall be referred through the FAA security office to the Internal Security Division, ACO-400, for a determination. An information copy shall also be provided to the FAA Security Division, ACP-300.
