Clearance Termination - A request to terminate a DOE security clearance.

This process has nothing to do with termination of a contract, only termination of the security clearance that DOE granted you. Completion of DOE F 5631.29, U.S. DOE Security Termination Statement is ONLY to terminate your security clearance and will not have an effect on your contract status.

An individual’s responsibility to protect classified and sensitive information continues long after he or she has separated from SNL, or no longer requires the security clearance. The DOE requires that a three-step process be followed for termination briefings and deactivating a clearance:
