SEC225, Termination Briefing

Required For
Clearance-holders who no longer need their clearances, will be on a leave of absence for 90 working days or longer, or terminate their support of SNL.

This briefing emphasizes the individual’s continuing responsibility not to disclose classified information to which he has had access, and the obligation to return all wholly or partially classified documents and materials in the individual’s possession. This briefing also covers the potential penalties for noncompliance. This briefing must be given by the FSO or Sandia Designated Representative as follows:

  • On the individual’s last day worked; or
  • The day it becomes known that the individual no longer requires access to classified information or matter, or special nuclear material; or
  • Immediately upon becoming aware that the individual is taking a leave of absence of 90 working days or more.

Delivery Method

Print the DOE F 5631.29, Security Termination Statement and the Security Termination Briefing (SEC225) (provided as one file). Review both documents with the individual. The individual must sign the Security Termination Statement. They may retain the Security Termination Briefing (SEC225) page.  Return the following to Sandia's Clearance Office:

  • Terminating individual's badge,
  • Completed and signed DOE F 5631.29, Security Termination Statement

Every effort should be made to obtain the individual’s signature. If this is not possible, provide on the completed but unsigned STS an explanation of the circumstances surrounding the termination and why the signature could not be obtained.

Regarding Personnel Security Files Maintained by Sandia Corporation

The SNL/NM Clearance Office and SNL/CA Visitor Control Office maintain personnel security files for contractor and consultant personnel. These files include access-authorization information (clearance request forms, Security Termination Statements, etc.). If such information is needed during self-assessment or survey activities, you may contact the appropriate office for assistance.
