WHAT IS THE WHOLE PERSON CONCEPT?
Under the whole person concept, an administrative judge must evaluate an
applicants eligibility for a security clearance by considering the totality of the applicants
conduct and all the circumstances. An administrative judge should consider the nine
adjudicative process factors:
(1) the nature, extent, and seriousness of the conduct;
circumstances surrounding the conduct, to include knowledgeable
(3) the frequency and recency of the conduct;
individuals age and maturity at the time of the conduct;
(5) the extent to
which participation is voluntary;
(6) the presence or absence of
rehabilitation and other permanent behavioral changes;
(7) the motivation
for the conduct;
(8) the potential for pressure, coercion, exploitation, or
(9) the likelihood of continuation or recurrence.
The ultimate determination of whether to grant eligibility for a
security clearance must be an overall common sense judgment based upon careful
consideration of the guidelines and the whole person concept.
