Contacts - 16 Approved For Release 2005/11/23 : CIA-RDP80-00941A000300 4 1-6 - 20 Ins - 0 Outs - 10 CONFIDENTIAL JOURNAL OFFICE OF LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL Tuesday - 3 May 1977 1. LIAISON Received a call from Rick Grawey, House Government Operations Subcommittee on Manpower and Housing staff, who inquired as to whether we had received a formal letter from the Civil Service Commission advising that it has reversed its policy denying Civil Service retirement benefits to reemployed CIARDS annuitants. I told him that we had not yet received it; however, Mr. Tinsley, Civil Service Commission, has advised the Agency that the policy has been reversed and he is working out certain details which he hopes to complete very shortly. Grawey said that Tinsley promised him a copy when it is completed and he will continue to press Tinsley for its issuance. 2. LIAISON Received a call from Craig Pettibone, Civil Service Commission, who furnished further references to decisions of the Comptroller General concerning reemployed annuitants. Pettibone noted that Mr. Tinsley, Civil Service Commission, has reversed the Commission's policy and reemployed CIARDS annuitants will be eligible for Civil Service retirement. They are, however, reviewing existing policy by which Foreign Service annuitants have been found immediately eligible for Civil Service retirement benefits without having to wait the five-year qualifying period as Mr. Tinsley had mistakenly thought was required in our earlier discussions. If the Commission finds that this policy must be continued, it will be applied to reemployed CIARDS annuitants and they will not have to be in the system for five years to qualify. He will let me know when their decision is made. 25X1 Appmvpci Releas~~~~~~CIA-RDP80-00941 A000I Approved Release 2005/11/23 : CIA-RDP80-00941A000300040021-6 1 -1 Journal - Office of Legislative Counsel Tuesday - 3 May 1977 Page 2 4. LIAISON Called DIA, for his reaction if we grant compartmented clearances to William Jackson, personal staffer to Majority Whip, Senator Alan Cranston (D., Calif. ), since this would be a change to Agency policy denying clearances to other than permanent staff members of committees. We discussed the broad responsibilities of the leadership of the Congress and the overriding need for compartmented clearances for those personal staff members whose assistance is required. I felt that the proposal was sound and concurred fully on. behalf of DIA and other elements of the Community within Defense. I told him that this requires the approval of the Director and we would pass his concurrence along in our recommendation to him. 5. LIAISON Received a call from John Butcher, GAO, concerning GAO's survey of Privacy Act requestors soliciting their comments on the manner in which agencies handled their requests. Butcher said they will have to indicate in their report that CIA felt it could not provide the names of requestors to GAO and, therefore, did not participate in the survey. He asked if this would present any problems. I told him that we did not consider it proper to provide these :names and we would stand by our decision. 6. LIAISON Debbie, of the office of Representative Clement J. Zablocki (D. , Wis. ), called requesting information for a constituent, about the Agency. An information package was forwarded to her. 7.

LIAISON Met with Barbara Chesnik, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence staff, and gave her copies of decisions in certain FOIA cases where the issue of the Director's sources and methods authorities was litigated. I asked her if she was planning to visit Headquarters to review Agency maps as Audrey Hatry, Chief Clerk, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, had suggested. She said what she really needed was a gazateer, not maps. I agreed to see whether the Agency produced one. 17. LIAISON Discussed with Hal Ford and Ted Ralston, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence staff, the scheduled 4 May Committee meeting regarding the Subcommittee on Collection, Production and Quality study of the A Team-B Team exercise.

Lugar (R., Ind.), and Miller said he would try to set these up. I informed Miller of my discussions with Elliot: Maxwell, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence staff, on separate compartmented security agreements and of the fact that the Agency had an additional 8, 000 to 10, 000 cubic feet of material ready for destruction, pending Senate Select Committee on Intelligence approval. 21.
