Nearly 500 terminated federal employees could gain “unauthorized physical access” to Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) facilities because the agency didn’t take back their security cards, according to a government watchdog.
Of 1,452 terminated Personal Identity Verification cards, which NRC employees use to access agency facilities, 487 were not collected.
Security “card retrieval does not always occur, and retrieval procedures have not been established to ensure collection,” NRC’s inspector general reported Wednesday.
“As a result, there is a risk of unauthorized physical access to NRC and other federal facilities.”
