Foreign Ownership, Control or Influence (FOCI)
HQ FOCI Manager, 301-903-9990
The objective of the Foreign Ownership, Control or Influence (FOCI) program is to evaluate and adjudicate the foreign involvements of companies being considered for award of a contract that requires access to classified matter. A FOCI determination must be rendered prior to award of the contract and issuance of a facility clearance (see Facility Clearance and Approval Program). If a company already holds a facility clearance issued by another DOE office or another government agency, a FOCI determination is not required.
