I was contacted by a family member (sibling) who was informed by a DHS contractor that their clearance paperwork was incomplete. My siblings and I were born abroad to US parents in the armed forces. The contractor requested copies of our birth certificates (FS240s). This seemed peculiar to me so I asked for contact information and spoke to the contractor. He wasn’t able to give me details for the need of this requirement or accept another form of “proof of citizenship” like a passport id. I’m uncomfortable with sending a copy of a breeder document to someone I have no connection or need, especially after being victim to the OPM leak. Does anyone have any guidance, regulations, disclosure rules or, even, familiarity with a request like this? I honestly don’t think the contractor is phishing, but he may be misinformed.
Some background: I, and several other family members, hold a TS/SCI /w poly and none of us have ever been required to submit another person’s birth certificate. None of my coworkers have experienced this either, but most of us are DoD.
