Abstract : This report provides background information and a concept of operations for a simple procedure called the Personal Acknowledgment of Staff Security (PASS). The purpose of the proposed procedure is to increase supervisor awareness, felt responsibility, accountability, and reporting of behaviors related to foreign intelligence entity (FIE) threats in accordance with Department of Defense Directive (DoDD) 5240.06, Counterintelligence Awareness and Reporting (CIAR), May 17, 2011. The defining feature of PASS is the requirement of a signed certification by supervisors that they understand and intend to comply with reporting policy. Recent psychological research suggests that the additional step of requiring a signed acknowledgment may make training and reporting requirements more salient and improve compliance. The present report presents findings from field research on the PASS concept, as well as descriptions of paper and computer-based versions of the procedure.
