Security Clearance Certification

Clearance Guidelines

All symposium participants must be US citizens and cleared for Secret.  All clearances must be final – i.e., no interim clearances.  There are two ways to pass your Secret collateral clearance:

 

  • If your organization has access to JPAS, have your security officer send your clearance via JPAS to SMO Code 888984.
    • List (Chris Gogoel) as the APL POC
    • List AFCEA in the Telephone#/Contact# field,
    • Submit your clearance request for 2/13/14 only 
  • If your organization does not have access to JPAS have your security officer pass your clearance, on your facility’s letterhead, via fax to 443-778-6400 and include the following information about you:
  • Your facility name, address, telephone number, entity cage code (if applicable), and certification of the facility clearance level
  • Your Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Country of citizenship
  • Social Security Number (SSN)
  • Security Clearance and accesses (should this say Secret collateral only?)
  • Name of person to be visited (Chris Gogoel)
  • Purpose of Visit: (AFCEA Winter Intelligence Symposium)
  • Date of visit: (February 13, 2014)
  • Include Your Security Officer’s signature & printed name
