Reference Block 11f:

Contractor requires access to U.S. Classified information outside the U.S. Possessions and Trust Territories.

The User Agency (UA) (HQ, Space and Missile Systems Center) will furnish complete classification guidance for the service to be performed. The highest level of classification for the contract is Secret.

Sending FOUO Information by United States Postal Service.

Send records containing FOUO information in a way that will not disclose their contents. When not mixed with classified information, individuals may send FOUO information by First Class Mail or Parcel Post. Bulky shipments, such as distribution of FOUO directives or testing materials, that otherwise qualify under postal regulations, may be sent by Fourth-Class Mail.

Electrically Transmitted Messages.

Mark each part of an electrically transmitted message that contains FOUO information. Unclassified messages containing FOUO information must show the abbreviation "FOUO" before the beginning of the text.

Safeguarding FOUO Information.

During Duty Hours. During normal duty hours, place FOUO records in an out-of-sight location, if the work area is open to non-government people.

During Non-duty Hours. At the close of business, store FOUO records to prevent unauthorized access. File such material with other unclassified records in unlocked files or desks, etc., when the Government or a Government contractor provides normal internal building security during non-duty hours. When there is no such internal security, locked buildings or rooms usually provide adequate after hours protection. If you desire additional protection, store FQUO material in locked containers, such as file cabinets, desks, or bookcases.

The Termination, Disposal, and Unauthorized Disclosure of FOUO.

Terminating FOUO Material: The originator or other component authority; should remove FOUO markings or indicate on the document the markings no longer apply when circumstances show that the information no longer needs protection from public disclosure. When a record is no longer FOUO, tell all known holders, to the extent practical. Do not retrieve records in files or storage only for that purpose.

Disposing of FOUO Material. Destroy FOUO materials by shredding, in any type shredder, to preclude reconstruction.

Unauthorized Disclosure. The unauthorized disclosure of FOUO records is not an unauthorized disclosure of classified information. However, Air Force and DoD contractor personnel have a duty to take reasonable actions to protect FOUO records under their control from unauthorized disclosure. Appropriate administrative actions should be taken to fix responsibility for such disclosures and disciplinary action taken where appropriate. Unauthorized disclosure of FOUO information protected by the

Privacy' Act (PA) may also result in civil or criminal sanctions against individuals or against the Air Force. Tell the originating organization about an unauthorized disclosure of its records.

Unclassified Controlled Nuclear Information (UCNI).

UCNI is sensitive unclassified information subject to special handling as outlined in DoD Directive 5210.83. The likelihood of your company coming in contact with UCNI is remote. However, if the situation does arise, employees will protect the information in the same manner as FOUO information, contact the company Security Office who, in turn, will obtain guidance from its cognizant Security Office

(30 SPS/SPAI).

Countermeasure Application. The following paragraphs discuss how to apply the countermeasures and under what Conditions they would not be required (see Table 1).

Keep RED and BLACK signal lines separated. Keeping RED signal lines about 6 Inches away from BLACK signal lines will reduce coupling to a level low enough to prevent detection at greatrelevant distances (over one mile). This separation may be reduced to 2 inches if the RED signal lines are shielded.

Keep RED Signal Lines Separated from BLACK Power Lines. Keeping RED signal lines about 6 inches away from BLACK power lines will reduce Coupling to a low enough level to prevent detection at great distances (over one mile). This separation may be reduced to 2 inches if the RED signal lines arc shielded.

Keep RED Signal Lines Separated from BLACK telephones and telephone Lines. Keep non-TEMPEST approved printers at least 6 feet away from telephones. Do not use the telephone while printing classified information. Keep all non-TEMPEST approved equipment at least three feet away from telephone lines. 2 inches if the telephone lines are shielded.

Reference Block: 10j:



FOUO information is not classified according to Executive Order, but is exempt from disclosure to the public under exemptions 2 through 9 of the FOIA. Do not consider or mark any other records FOUO. FOUO is not authorized as a form of classification to protect national security Interests.

Prior FOUO Application.

A FOUO marking is not a conclusive basis for withholding a record under the FOJA. When such a record is requested, evaluate the information in it to determine if FOIA exemptions apply and whether a discretionary release is appropriate.

Time to Mark Records.

Marking records when they are created gives notice of FOUO content but does not eliminate the need to review a record requested under the FOJA. Examine records with and without markings before release to identify information that needs continued protection and qualifies as exempt from public release.

Distribution Statement.

Information in a technical document that requires a distribution statement according to AFI 61-204 must show that statement. The originator may also apply the FOUO marking, as appropriate.

How to Apply FOUO Markings.

Mark an unclassified document containing FOUO information "FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY" at the bottom, on the outside of the front cover (if any), on each page containing FOUO information, on the back page, and on the outside of the back cover (if. any).

In unclassified documents, note that the originator may also mark individual paragraphs that contain FOUO information to alert the users and assist in the review process.

Mark an individual paragraph in a classified document that contains FOUO information, but no classified information, by placing "(FOUO)" at the beginning of the paragraph.

Mark an individual page in a classified document that has both FOUO and classified information at the top and bottom with the highest security classification of information on that page.

Mark an individual page in a classified document that has FOUO information, but no classified information, "FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY" at the bottom of the page.

If a classified document also contains FOUO information, or, if the classified material becomes FOUO when declassified, place the following statement on the bottom of the cover or the first page, under the classification marking. If declassified, review the document to make sure material is not FOUO and not exempt under FOIA before public release.

Mark other records, such as computer printouts, photographs, films, tape, or slides, "FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY" or "FOUO" in a way that ensures the recipient or viewer knows the record contains FOUO Information.

For FOUO material sent outside the DoD to authorized recipients, place an expanded marking to explain its meaning. Do this by typing or stamping the following statement on the document before transfer. This document contains information EXEMPT FROM MANDA TORY DJSCLOSURE UNDER THE FOIA. Exemption(s) applies (apply). (Further distribution is prohibited without the approval of (enter OPR)).

Procedures for Releasing, Disseminating, and Transmitting FOUO Material.

FOUO information may be sent within DoD components and between officials of DoD components and authorized DoD contractors, consultants, and grantees to conduct official business for the DoD. Inform recipients of the status of such information, and send the material in a way that prevents unauthorized public disclosure. Make sure documents that transmit FOUO material call attention to any FOUO attachments. Normally, FOUO records may be sent over facsimile equipment. To preclude unauthorized disclosure, consider such factors as attaching special cover sheets, location of sending and receiving machines, and availability of authorized personnel to receive the FOUO information. FQUO information may be passed to officials in other departments and agencies of the executive and judicial branches to fulfill a government function. Mark the records "FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY," and tell the recipient the information is exempt from public disclosure under the FOIA and if special handling instructions apply.
