Due to many changes in the security clearance arena, the new, Fourth Edition, of the Security Clearance Law and Procedure book has been extensively updated. Perhaps of greatest significance, the adjudicative guidelines were revised and became effective on June 8, 2017. These new guidelines apply across the board, as compared to previously when different agencies applied different guidelines. Also included are new DOHA decisions based upon the new guidelines.
Security Clearance Law and Procedure offers representatives, attorneys, and union representatives a comprehensive and authoritative analysis of security clearance law. The guide is divided into two parts: Part One—History and Procedural Guide; and Part Two—Adjudicative Guidelines and Case Analyses. The text is further broken into major areas of security clearance jurisprudence with expert discussion of governing case law, adjudicative guidelines, regulations, statutes, and Executive Orders. Case analysis focuses on the issues presented when security clearances are granted, denied, and revoked. Major topics include:
- Introduction and Recent Developments
- The History of Security Clearance Law—DOHA, DCAF, and covered employees
- Administrative Procedures—procedures for government contractors and federal employees, DOHA processing time, statistics, procedures for higher level clearances and access, debarment, and conducting research
- Procedural Issues Applicable to Hearings and Personal Appearances—burden of proof, statement of reasons, evidence, witnesses, constitutional issues, and jurisdictional issues
- Criminal Procedure—constitutional protections; the effect of admissions, arrests, acquittal, Alford pleas, probation, and felons; and the Bond Amendment
- The Polygraph—how it works, and cases involving the use of polygraphs
- Appeals—procedures and arguments to sustain and reverse decisions
- Noteworthy Court Cases
- Adjudicative Guidelines and Cases Analyses
