National Industrial Security Program Directive No. 1
The Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO), National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), is proposing to amend National Industrial Security Program Directive No. 1. This proposed amendment to Directive No. 1 provides guidance to agencies on release of certain classified information (referred to as ``proscribed information'') to contractors that are owned or under the control of a foreign interest and have had the foreign ownership or control mitigated by an arrangement known as a Special Security Agreement. Currently, there is no Federal standard across agencies on release of proscribed information to this group. The proposed amendment will provide standardization and consistency to the process across the Federal Government, and will enable greater efficiency in determining the release of the information as appropriate. This proposed amendment also moves the definitions section to the beginning of the part for easier use, and adds definitions for the terms ``Cognizant Security Office,'' ``National Interest Determination,'' and ``Proscribed Information,'' to accompany the new guidelines. Finally, this proposed amendment makes a minor typographical change to the authority citation to make it more accurate.
