ABSTRACT: This system of records permits the USAOs and EOUSA to compile, maintain and track information relating to the security clearance status of the individual grand jury reporters employed by the reporting firm under contract with the Justice Department.

PURPOSE This system was established and is maintained to request and track those court reporters with the clearance required to transcribe events occurring before a Federal Grand Jury. The system allows prosecutors and Administrative Officers to efficiently complete the daily task of beginning the prosecutorial phase of crimes through the proceedings of a grand jury.

ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: The security clearance forms are maintained in the Administrative Division in the District Court building in an office which is staffed by office personnel during working hours and locked at all times thereafter.

AGENCY PROGRAM: The USAOs are charged with the enforcement of United States law both civil and criminal in conjunction with the Department of Justice. Compilation and maintenance of the status of security clearances of court reporters permitted to transcribe matters occurring before a Federal grand jury promotes the efficient prosecution of criminal matters.

SOURCES OF DATA: The source of the information contained in these files are the reporter's request for security clearance personnel information sheet and the clearance or denial of the clearance.
