For the reasons stated in the preamble, NARA proposes to amend Title 32 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 2004, as follows: PART 2004—NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL SECURITY PROGRAM DIRECTIVE NO. 1 1. Revise the authority citation for part 2004 to read as follows: Authority: Executive Order 12829, January 6, 1993, 58 FR 3479, as amended by Executive Order 12885, December 14, 1993, 58 FR 65863. 2. Amend § 2004.22 by adding new paragraph (c) to read as follows: § 2004.22 [202(a)] Operational Responsibilities WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS * * * * * (c) National Interest Determinations (NIDs). Executive branch departments and agencies shall make a National Interest Determination (NID) before authorizing contractors, cleared or in process for clearance under a Special Security Agreement (SSA), to have access to proscribed information. To make a NID, the agency shall assess whether release of the proscribed information is consistent with the national security interests of the United States. (1) The requirement for a NID applies to new contracts, including pre-contract activities in which access to proscribed information is required, and to existing contracts when contractors are acquired by foreign interests and an SSA is the proposed foreign ownership, control, or influence mitigation method. (i) If access to proscribed information is required to complete pre-contract award actions or to perform on a new contract, the Government Contracting Activity (GCA) shall determine if release of the information is consistent with national security interests. (ii) For contractors that have existing contracts that require access to proscribed information, have been or are in the process of being acquired by foreign interests, and have proposed an SSA to mitigate foreign ownership, the Cognizant Security Office (CSO) shall notify the GCA of the need for a NID. (iii) The GCA(s) shall determine, ordinarily within 30 days, per § 2004.22(c)(4)(i), or 60 days, per § 2004.22(c)(4)(ii), whether release of the proscribed information is consistent with national security interests. (2) In accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2536, DoD and the Department of Energy (DOE) cannot award a contract involving access to proscribed VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:57 Nov 27, 2009 Jkt 220001 information to a contractor effectively owned or controlled by a foreign government unless a waiver has been issued by the Secretary of Defense or Secretary of Energy. (3) NIDs may be program-, project-, or contract-specific. For program and project NIDs, a separate NID is not required for each contract. The CSO may require the GCA to identify all contracts covered by the NID. NID decisions shall be made by officials as specified by CSA policy or as designated by the agency head. (4) NID decisions shall ordinarily be made within 30 days. (i) Where no interagency coordination is required because the department or agency owns or controls all of the proscribed information in question, the GCA shall provide a final documented decision to the applicable CSO, with a copy to the contractor, ordinarily within 30 days of the date of the request for the NID. (ii) If the proscribed information is owned by, or under the control of, a department or agency other than the GCA (e.g., National Security Agency (NSA) for Communications Security, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) for Sensitive Compartmented Information, and DOE for Restricted Data), the GCA shall provide written notice to that department or agency that its written concurrence is required. Such notice shall be provided within 30 days of being informed by the CSO of the requirement for a NID. The GCA shall ordinarily provide a final documented decision to the applicable CSO, with a copy to the contractor, within 60 days of the date of the request for the NID. (iii) If the NID decision is not provided within 30 days, per § 2004.22(c)(4)(i), or 60 days, per § 2004.22(c)(4)(ii), the CSA shall intercede to request the GCA to provide a decision. In such instances, the CSO will provide the contractor with updates at 30-day intervals until the NID decision is made. (5) The CSO shall not delay implementation of an SSA pending completion of a GCA’s NID processing, provided there is no indication that a NID will be denied either by the GCA or the owner of the information (i.e., NSA, DOE, or ODNI). However, the contractor shall not have access to additional proscribed information under a new contract until the GCA determines that the release of the information is consistent with national security interests and issues a NID. (6) The CSO shall not upgrade an existing contractor clearance under an SSA to Top Secret unless an approved PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 NID covering the prospective Top Secret access has been issued. § 2004.24 [Redesignated as § 2004.5] 3. Redesignate § 2004.24 as § 2004.5, and transfer newly designated § 2004.5 from subpart B to subpart A. 4. In newly designated § 2004.5, redesignate paragraph (b) as paragraph (c), and add new paragraphs (b), (d), and (e), to read as follows: § 2004.5 Definitions. * * * * * (b) ‘‘Cognizant Security Office (CSO)’’ means the organizational entity delegated by the Head of a CSA to administer industrial security on behalf of the CSA. * * * * * (d) ‘‘National Interest Determination (NID)’’ means a determination that access to proscribed information is consistent with the national security interests of the United States. (e) ‘‘Proscribed information’’ means Top Secret; Communications Security, except classified keys used for data transfer; Restricted Data; Special Access Program; or Sensitive Compartmented Information.
