RESOLUTION FOR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN VISITORS

 

 

I, ______________, do hereby certify that I am Secretary of the George Mason University Board of Visitors, a state University organized and existing under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and that the following is a true and correct copy of a resolution adopted by the Board of Visitors of George Mason University at a meeting held at Airlie House, Warrenton, Virginia on August 20, 2004 at which time a quorum was present.

 

 WHEREAS, current Department of Defense Regulations contain a provision making it mandatory that the Chairman of the Board and all principal officers (such as President, Senior Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and those occupying similar positions) meet the personnel clearance requirements established for a contractor’s facility clearance; and

 

 WHEREAS, said Department of Defense Regulations permit the exclusion from the personnel clearance requirements of certain members of the Board of Visitors and other officers, provided that this action is recorded in the corporate minutes.

 

 NOW THEREFORE BE IT DECLARED that the Rector of the Board, at least an official quorum of the Board of Visitors and principal officers at the present time do possess, or will be processed for, the required security clearance; and

 

 BE IT RESOLVED that in the future, when any individual enters upon any duties as Rector of the Board, as a replacement for one of the cleared quorum of the Board, or as one of the principal officers of this University, which may include President, Senior Vice President, and Provost shall immediately make application for the required security clearance; and

 

 BE IT RESOLVED FURTHER that the following members of the Board of Visitors and other officers shall not require, shall not have, and can be effectively excluded from access to CLASSIFIED information in the possession of the University and do not occupy positions that would enable them to affect adversely corporate policies or practices in the performance of classified contracts for the Department of Defense or the User Agencies of its Industrial Security Program.

Resolution to Exclude Certain Visitors from Access to Classified Information


Resolution to Exclude Certain Visitors from Access to Classified Information

 

Requirement: DOD requires that all entities storing classified materials have the leadership of the organization cleared to the level of the material being stored. This includes the Board of Directors, or in the case of the University, the Board of Visitors.

 

Resolution: In order to comply with DOD requirements and keep the requirement to have clearances for as few members as possible, DOD policy permits Boards to have a select few of its members responsible for issues involving classified material by excluding other members from access. It is recommended that the George Mason Board of Visitors follow the example of other schools in Virginia, i.e., UVA and Va Tech and have only the Executive Committee be cleared. The attached resolution follows exactly the recommended DOD format for Board to confirm that decision.
