What are the requirements for accessing PCII?
PCII is made available only to those Federal, State and local government employees and their contractors who: • Are trained in the proper handling, use, and safeguarding of PCII; • Have homeland defense responsibilities as specified in the CII Act, the Final Rule; and policies and procedures issued by the PCII Program Office; • Have a need to know the specific information; and • Sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (non-Federal employees). In addition to these requirements, government contractors must modify relevant contracts to comply with requirements of the PCII Program. Although contract modification is not a prerequisite to accessing PCII; the contractor must contractually acknowledge its responsibilities with respect to PCII as soon as practicable. To avoid delayed or interrupted access to PCII, contact the DoD PCII Office at 703-602-5730, ext. 147 to learn more about contract modification.
