Agency Security Classified Management Program Data,
Standard Form (SF) 311 Reporting Requirements

Executive Order 13526, “Classified National Security Information,” and its government-wide implementing directive, 32 C.F.R. Part 2001, require Executive branch agencies to report statistics related to their security classification programs to the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO). IAW AR 380-5, HQDA G-2 will in turn issue a data call to all Army Commands to report utilizing the SF 311. HQDA, G-2 will then provide ISOO with a consolidated report where information is compiled, analyzed, reported, and published in ISOO’s annual report to the President.

What is the purpose of the SF 311?
The SF 311 is the form used to collect such data from Executive branch agencies that create and/or handle classified national security information. Information that is requested on the SF 311 includes the number of original classification authorities, number of original and derivative classification decisions, number of mandatory declassification review requests and appeals, number of pages declassified, number of inspections conducted, and number of classification guides.
