If someone has a minor incident reported into JPAS, either adjudicated or pending, does that incident fall under the Privacy Act? I guess the real question is, if during a periodic reinvestigation, would an OPM investigator (or any investigator), be allowed to use any aspect of the reported incident (or knowledge of the incident in general) during their interviews with the listed contacts provided through eQIP/SF-86? Or is mentioning the incident a violation of the Privacy Act unless its directly with the person the incident is about?
For example, say I had a minor incident reported against me into JPAS, would an investigator during a periodic clearance reinvestigation be allowed to either mention the incident or question family/friends/neighbors/contacts listed about the incident? Or is the investigator only allowed to discuss the incident with me and/or my FSO?
