counterintelligence-scope (CI) polygraph

Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Question:  I have to take a CI polygraph.  What is a CI polygraph and how does it apply to counter-intelligence?

Answer:  A counterintelligence-scope polygraph is a special lie-detector test for DOE employees, usually those with existing Top Secret clearances.  This link on Counterintelligence Polygraph Examination notes the details:

In December 1999, DOE published the official Counterintelligence-Scope Polygraph Examination Rule (Rule 709). . . .

This fact sheet provides answers to some of the more frequently asked questions about the counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination.

What is the purpose of the polygraph examination?

The counterintelligence polygraph program was instituted to strengthen protection of DOE information and technologies. Its primary objective is to identify activities involving intent to harm the United States. The counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination is also an integral element of the DOE Accelerated Access Authorization Program (AAAP), a program DOE employs to grant interim personnel security clearances on an
expedited basis.

What types of questions will be asked on the polygraph examination?

The DOE polygraph examination is limited in scope to counterintelligence issues. This means that the questions will be limited to the narrowly focused topics of:

  • Espionage, Sabotage, Terrorism, Intentional unauthorized disclosure of classified information, Intentional unauthorized foreign contacts, Deliberate damage or malicious misuse of a U.S. government or defense system

The topics covered in the counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination are identical to those used by the eleven other U.S. federal agencies that use polygraph examinations for screening purposes. DOE does not have the authority to ask questions that are outside the counterintelligence scope.

DOE may not ask lifestyle questions or expand the scope of the questions beyond the six topics listed above, without amending the current polygraph regulation and providing an opportunity for public comment.

My other notes on US security clearances includes:

If you like Oracle tuning, you may enjoy my new book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference", over 900 pages of BC's favorite tuning tips & scripts.
