To provide the Department of Energy policy for the development, management, and administration of the DOE Emergency Management System.
The DBT Policy (formerly Graded Security Protection (GSP) Policy) establishes intelligence community informed security performance metrics but is not a threat statement or an intelligence assessment. The policy is designed to represent a stable set of goals for the planning and implementation of Departmental safeguards and security programs for the next 3 - 5 years. The policy embodies risk management by defining the parameters of credible threats that must be addressed, further adjustments to Department-wide performance standards may be justified by specific site and/or mission imperatives. DOE’s security risk management philosophy is based on establishing and maintaining a graded approach and defense-in-depth safeguards and security program. Several factors were identified during the 2015 GSP annual review which highlighted the need to update the policy in terms of the risk management considerations, which include the consequence posed by the loss, theft, and/or unauthorized use of an asset; intelligence pertaining to current and future objectives and characteristics of adversaries. The 2008 GSP policy is beyond the predicated intelligence life-cycle and requires a revision.
It is necessary to update the current version of this directive due to lack of consistent application and understanding of its provisions.
