Assistant or Information, DDA STAT SUBJECT Historians Access to Classified Documents in Custody of NARS REFERENCE : Memo t from STAT Acting Chief, History Staff, DDA, dtd 29 December 1976, same subject Having reviewed Dr..Pfeiffer's memorandum and the backup papers from NARS relating to the pending ICRC-discussion of inter-agency agreement on access by agency historians to classified materials in the custody of NARS, I have concluded that such a procedure as proposed would be,unacceptable as it would relate to CIA material. I recommend therefore that you as Agency representative to the ICRC point out to that body at the February meeting that because-of our responsibilities relating to'sources and methods, we. cannot agree to the NARS proposal..

Wells Executive Director Interagency Classification Review Committee National Archives Building Seventh Street & Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20408 Dear Mr. Wells: It is my understanding that the ICRC is considering standardization for government usage of thirteen forms for handling classified materials. I applaud the goals of reducing government paperwork, but standardizing forms for use by agencies whose missions, requirements,. procedures and classified inventories are so divergent seems impractical. Our position is that some of these forms are inappropriate for use by CIA or other agencies which have large volumes of classified material. In addition, many of CIA's information systems are automated and to institute the use of your forms would necessitate double work. Attached is a detailed listing of the proposed forms, our reservations on them and recommendations for their use. Sincerely, John F. Blake Chairman Information Review Committee ISAS;EL:dr (9Mar76) Distribution: Original - Addressee w/att 1 - 0GC w/att ,I-- 1 - ISAS w/att IPS w/att 2 - DDA Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 SF 182 Top Secret Access Record: Attached to all Top Secret documents and used to record identifying data of the documents and each person who has read it. SF 204 Top Secret Cover Sheet: Attached to Top Secret documents when out of the file. Agency Form 26, Top Secret Control and Cover Sheet, is used for the same purposes as the two proposed forms. Our form provides space for downgrading, destruction or outside Agency transmittal information. CIA urges the proposed two forms be made optional. Our Top Secret inventory is automated and the proposed forms are incompatible with our system. In addition, the Form 26 serves five purposes and replaces two proposed forms. .SF 188 Nat t SF 190 onal Security Classified Document Accounta- bility Record: Used to control classified documents by document data, suspense date, office routing and copy reproductions. part) Agency Forms 238 (6 part) and 717a (8 control document dissemination by the same data as the proposed form. The Agency forms are handy 3x5 NCR packets which mail-clerks use to maintain suspense files of documents and replies. Our forms eliminate the need for each addressee to prepare a new abstract or suspense card for a document passing through an office. This method saves valuable employee and document transmittal time. We urge the proposed form be made optional. Secret Cover Sheet: Used to protect document while out of the file. Confidential Sheet: Used to protect document while out of th fi e le. Agency Form 610 Routi , ng and Record Sheet._ Although not originall d y esigned as a. cover sheet, this form does double duty by protecting the document and providing spaces for routine information. The form is used for both Secret Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 i W. and Confidential material, thereby eliminating extra paperwork. Boxes are provided on the form so that appropriate classification information can be marked. We urge the proposed two forms be made optional, but for those agencies which do not handle classified material frequently the cover sheets might be useful. SF 192 Visitor Register: Lists all individuals who visit facilities handling classified material or information. Agency Form 604a, Official Pass, is prepared in duplicate and one copy given to the inter- viewer (escort). If a visitor must see another person in the building, this interviewer signs the form so that a complete record of a visitor's stops can be traced when the form is returned on departure. The proposed form does not allow for this. We urge the proposed form be made optional. SF 193 Authorization for Reproduction and Dissemination of Classified. Material: Used to record approval to reproduce copies of classified materials. CIA has no similar form. The decision to reproduce classified material is left with the individual manager and copies are made only with his/her approval. Reproduction of Top Secret documents is prohibited and CIA regulation 0 implementing EO 11652 states STAT the restraints to be exercised in the repro- duction of any classified material. Standard- ization of this form seems wasteful and unnecessary; we strongly urge this form be made optional. SF 199.

See our comments for proposed SF 182. Authorization for Access to Classified National Security Information and/or Material: Authorizes an individual access to national security information for a specific project and also serves as a security acknowledgement. Because the Director of Central Intelligence has the statutory obligation to protect iritelli- gence. sources and methods our security clearance forms, secrecy agreements and briefing/ debriefing statements are unique. For other government agencies the proposed form might be useful. CIA urges this form be made optional. Request for or Notice of Change of Classification of National Security Information or Material: Used to request an agency to review documents for downgrading or to notify an agency of the downgrading action by the originator of classi- fied documents. CIA presently uses a memorandum to the appro- priate agency to request that agency to review its documents in connection with a public request. We also use a memorandum to notify agencies of our own declassification actions. These actions are generally done on a large scale in connection with our declassification program. The proposed form would not be adequate for the purpose. We urge the proposed form be made optional. (This form should be reviewed to comply with EO 11652 and to remove the notation "Group Markings" in several places on the form.) National Security Classified Document Destruc- tion Certificate: Used as a record and certificate of proper destruction of national security information. CIA uses several different forms to record destruction of national security information depending on the classification level and the media of the records.. Form 26, as mentioned previously, contains space for recording . Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 destruction of Top Secret information; Form 3647, "Certificate of Destruction of Material," is used for destruction of national security information held in special channels; Form 140, "Records Retirement Request," has space for accounting for destruction of records per GSA/NARS approved disposal schedules; Form 3536 is used to log distribution and ultimate destruction of national security information held in microform. We prefer an optional form because of the different media of our records, the automation of our Top Secret inventory and special internal security restrictions on sensi- tive classified materials. We urge this form be made optional. SF 229 Security Container Information: Used to identify safe custodian. Part 1 of this 3-part form contains name, address and home phone number of the safe custodian; this is attached to the outside of the container. Part 2 contains the combi- nation which is placed inside the envelope, -Part 3, and stored elsewhere. Our safe combination information is automated . and the Office of Security uses special computer- generated forms. No custodian information is displayed on the outside of the security container. CIA urges an optional form. If such a form is made mandatory for other agencies, we suggest that in the interests of privacy, the system be redesigned so that personal information is not displayed and so easily accessible on the container. SF 241 Open/Locked Reversible Container Sign: Used on all containers of classified information. The Agency used these open/locked signs for many years. Recently we began using magnetized signs which can be used on vault doors where the cardboard forms cannot. The cards rapidly wear out and need to be replaced frequently; the magnetized signs last indefinitely thus providing a long-run cost savings. -CIA prefers an optional form, but if this form is,,,-,- Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 Approved For Release 2007/07/10: CIA-RDP86-00674R000200160001-3 w standardized, we will continue to use the magnetized signs on vault doors and other containers on which the proposed form cannot be attached.

FEB 1 1 1976 Mr. John F. Blake Chairman, Departmental Review Committee Room 7D26 CIA Washington, D.C. 20505 It is indeed a pleasure for me to inform you of my selection as the new Executive Director of the Interagency Classification Re- view Committee (ICRC). Having worked in the Program for a considerable period of time and particularly as Senior Program Analyst for the ICRC, I am well aware of the spirit of cooperation which has existed in the past between Agencies and the Committee. I solicit your support in maintaining and improving on that spirit of cooperation. Likewise, I am aware of the laudable achievements which have been made in implementing Executive Order 11652. However, much remains to be done in order for us to successfully fulfill our mutual responsibil- ities. Over the past year the Committee staff has acquired some added capability for overseeing program implementation. In the days ahead we shall be directing maximum effort to fulfilling that responsibility through visits, coordination, analysis and inspec- tions. I am firmly convinced that our mutual responsibilities can be more fully realized if a working relationship exists among all responsible for effective implementation. Therefore, I would wel- come the opportunity to visit your office and meet with you and those members of your staff who work with the Committee to achieve the goals established by the President in Executive Order 11652. In particular, I would like to discuss any viewpoints or suggestions which you may have with respect to the implementation of the Executive Order and the NSC directive. If a convenient time for such a meeting can be arranged in the near future, please let me know. My office phone number is 523-3011. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, ROBERT W.
