"In December 1999, DOE [Department of Energy] published the official Counterintelligence-Scope Polygraph Examination Rule (Rule 709). This Rule was finalized after discussions with lab, plant and Federal DOE personnel across the U.S. As published in the December 13, 1999 Federal Register, Rule 709 provides in-depth information about the polygraph program, including detailed responses to employee comments and questions from the September, 1999 public hearings. DOE addressed these comments and questions by clarifying policy points or, in many cases, amending the Rule to respond to employee concerns. This fact sheet provides answers to some of the more frequently asked questions about the counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination."
