Controlled Unclassified Information Office
In a press release from the National Archives Allen Weinstein, Archivist of the United States announces the formation of the (CUIO) or “Controlled Unclassified Information Office”. Mr. Weinstein also announced that the recently created office will be headed by director of the Information Security Oversight Office, William J. Bosanko. The creation of this office is in response to a memorandum issued by President Bush on May 9, 2008 to the Heads of Departments and Agencies on the Designation and Sharing of Controlled Unclassified Information; designating the National Archives as the responsible group for managing, administrating and implementing the CIU framework.
Mr. Weinstein states, that in initiating the office, “I have provided Mr. Bosanko with a clear roadmap for the National Archives, as the executive agent and consistent with the President’s direction, to ensure that only information which genuinely requires the protections afforded by the President’s memorandum will be introduced into the CUI Framework.”
