Mark Bradley, director of the Freedom of Information Act declassification and pre-publication review at the Justice Department, has been appointed director of the National Archives and Records Administration‘s information security oversight office.
He will transition to his new role on Dec. 27 and will lead the office that oversees the governmentwide security classification system and the National Industrial Security Program, NARA said Monday.
“His extensive experience with intelligence matters, declassification policy and FOIA will serve him well in his new position as Director of ISOO,” said David Ferriero, archivist of the U.S.
Bradley will also serve as executive secretary of the Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel and the Public Interest Declassification Board as well as chairman of the National Industrial Security Program Policy Advisory Committee, the State, Local, Tribal, and Private Sector Policy Advisory Committee and the Controlled Unclassified Information Advisory Council.
He joined DOJ in November 2000 and chairs its department review committee.
Before DOJ, he served as former U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s legislative assistant for foreign affairs and intelligence matters and as a criminal defense lawyer in the District of Columbia.
