With the summer travel season underway, private sector government contractors and subcontractors should remember that the Director of National Intelligence ("DNI") has established new reporting requirements regarding foreign travel and foreign contacts for those who have been granted access to classified information, or who occupy “a sensitive position.”  Effective June 12, 2017, the DNI issued Security Executive Agent (“SecEA”) Directive 3 (“Reporting Requirements for Personnel with Access to Classified Information or Who Hold a Sensitive Position”). 

This Stroock Special Bulletin provides an overview of SecEA Directive 3, including definitions of “covered individuals” and “sensitive position,” and procedures regarding official and unofficial foreign travel.
