  • All covered individuals (Army personnel in national security positions, or holding clearances), regardless of access to classified information are required to report reportable activities.
  • The memorandum codifies the minimum grade for designees.
  • If it is proven that a covered individual failed to report information about a co-worker, an “adverse” national security eligibility action may be initiated against the individual who failed to report.
