Office of the Secretary

32 CFR Part 154

[Docket ID: DOD-2016-OS-0121]
RIN 0790-AJ55

Department of Defense Personnel Security Program Regulation

AGENCY: Office of the Under Secretary for Intelligence, DoD.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning personnel 
security. The codified rule is outdated and no longer accurate or 
applicable as written. The rule does not impose obligations on members 
of the public that are not already imposed by statute. It paraphrases 
and summarizes relevant sources of law and does not substantively 
deviate from them.

DATES: This rule is effective on January 5, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia Toppings at 571-372-0485.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DoD internal guidance concerning personnel 
security will continue to be published in DoD Manual 5200.02. Once the 
revision of DoD Manual 5200.02 is signed, a copy will be made available 
at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pub1.html.
    It has been determined that publication of this CFR part removal 
for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to 
public interest since it is based on removing DoD internal policies and 
procedures that are publically available on the Department's issuance 
Web site.
    The removal of this rule will be reported in future status updates 
of DoD's retrospective review plan in accordance with the requirements 
in Executive Order 13563. DoD's full plan can be accessed at: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=DOD-2011-OS-0036.
