Security Clearance Connection Reportable Information Guidelines

What Do I Need to Report?

The government establishes reporting requirements for all covered individuals who have access to classified information or hold a sensitive position. To determine what you are required to report, please review the following criteria.

Important information for reporting concerns under Psychological Conditions: Lockheed Martin and the U. S. government recognize the critical importance of mental health, and we advocate proactive management of mental health conditions to support the wellness and recovery of all employees. While most individuals with a mental health condition do not present a security risk, there may be times when such a condition can affect a person’s eligibility for a security clearance. Mental health treatment, in and of itself, is not a reason to revoke or deny access to classified information. Also important to note: Counseling or treatment related to marital, family, grief, PTSD, sexual assault, depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, OCD, and/or voluntarily seeking counseling from medical professionals or independent programs (e.g. Lockheed Martin’s Employee Assistance Program [(EAP)] for such circumstances are not reportable. Should you have any additional questions or concerns relating to mental health and your security clearance, please contact requiredreports.lmsecurity@lmco.com

Please keep in mind that reporting information relating to any of the Adjudicative Guidelines does not mean that eligibility will be denied or revoked.

Cleared personnel should alert Security if they observe other cleared individuals not meeting the requirements and may pose a threat to security or become a counterintelligence concern.

Should you need to report any information after completing your security clearance application or while maintaining your clearance, please utilize one of the following methods:

  • Report the information to your Facility Security Officer (FSO)
  • Report via the Reporting Wizard located in LMPeople > Security, Safety, and Travel > Security Information, Clearances, and Visits > Report Required Information
  • If you are not a current Lockheed Martin employee, or do not have access to the above reporting avenues, please submit the information to requiredreports.lmesecurity@lmco.com

 

Continuous Evaluation Enrollment and Reporting Requirements: If you have been notified that you have been enrolled in Continuous Evaluation, this does not obviate your requirement to continue reporting all relevant information as it may relate to your security clearance.

Please note: If you are briefed to a Special Access Programs (SAP) or have Sensitive Compartmentalized Information access, you are also required to report directly to your Contractor Program Security Officer or Program Security Officer.
