DD Form 441

security responsibilities of both the cleared organization and the government.

DD Form 441-1
- This is
an attachment to the DD Form 441 that lists cleared divisions or branch offices
that are included and covered by the provisions of the organization's Security
Agreement and Certificate Pertaining to Foreign Interest.
- The Certificate
Pertaining to Foreign Interests must also be completed. Prospective contractors
use this form to report foreign ownership and other types of foreign involvement
in their operations or management. The information on the form is cross-checked
by a DSS representative, to assess the extent to which a prospective contractor
is operating under foreign ownership, control or influence (FOCI). A facility
clearance will not be issued to any company found to be under FOCI to a degree
that could compromise national security.
