14 CFR 1214.504 - Screening requirements.

Status message

There is 1 rule appearing in the Federal Register for 14 CFR 1214. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 1214.504 Screening requirements.
(a) Only those persons who are certified under the PRP will have unescorted access to mission critical space systems areas, be assigned to, employed in, or retained in mission critical positions/duties. While this regulation provides for unescorted access to mission critical space systems areas, it does not preclude the need for escorting of PRP personnel who do not have security clearances in classified areas. The certification will be based on an evaluation of screening data which is to be undertaken by a trained evaluator using evaluation guidance and criteria contained in Federal Personnel Manual (FPM) chapter 731 and Attachment B (Adjudication Guidelines) of NMI 8610.13. 4 The need for impartial and consistent evaluation of data based on a set of standards is considered paramount to the successful implementation of this program.

Footnote(s):
4 See footnote 1 to § 1214.502(e).

(b) Determination of suitability for assignment to mission critical positions/duties will be made on the basis of the following criteria:
(1) Supervisory nomination (per requirements of § 1214.505(c) of this part) and assurance of ability to perform mission critical duties as evidenced by performance during training and while on the job.
(2) Medical evaluation (for cause only) by NASA designated medical/psychiatric authority consistent with:
(i) The guidelines and requirements of the NASA Occupational Health Division as required to ensure adequate health for competent and reliable performance; and
(ii) Information developed by testing, review and other screening regarding an individual's health, drug or alcohol abuse, or other factors which may reflect adversely on his or her cognizance, judgement, and ability to act reliably. Such information shall be considered “cause” within the meaning of this subsection.
(iii) All information obtained by medical or Employee Assistance Program evaluation is subject to federal and state statutes and regulations pertaining to the privacy and confidentiality of patient/client information.
(3) Evaluation by a NASA-designated investigatory authority including a review of the results of any National Agency Check (including a name check of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) fingerprint records) completed within the past 5 years. When the National Agency Check indicates that a more extensive investigation has been completed, the results of that investigation will also be reviewed.
(4) Local agency checks as appropriate.
(5) A review of the PRP candidate's personnel employment records.
(6) A review of the Inspector General case files.
(c) Information acquired during the screening process will be protected in a manner consistent with the provisions of the Privacy Act and other pertinent laws and regulations.
