  • FOUO is one of the absolute lowest classification markings in existence. Aside from unclassified, that is.

    FOUO IS Unclassified.

    It's a caveat placed on Unclassified information meaning it is not intended for public release. It isn't a classification unto itself.

    The lowest level that is actually "Classified" from a legal/technical standpoint is Confidential.

    FOUO isn't a real classification. It's all over government forms. There is Classified, Secret, Top-Secret, and UltraFa...

    Ahem...

    FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY (FOUO): applies to unclassified information that is exempt from mandatory release to the public under Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and may be used for protecting a variety of information.

    There are three levels of classification defined in terms of level of damage -- CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET and TOP SECRET.

    However, there are many different levels of special handling. FOUO is a special handling caveat, specifically, a type of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

    And now I feel like I've worked on my day off...

  • Use of this memo as toilet paper is discouraged unless it is an official evacuation.
  • A few years back my company sent out a memo reminding us that things marked "company confidential" should not be taken home, and should be disposed of in the shredder. I sent mail pointing out that everything was marked 'company confidential', including the cafeteria menus.

    Never heard back, and the menus were still confidential for the 2 years I remained with the company.
  • *Ctl-F "unclassified"*
    13 matches.
    *whistles nonchalantly and leaves*
  • I'm curious to what the problem with the ammo is. Is it tolerances in manufacturing (porosity in the material) or improper balance, or is it a problem with the weapons not producing enough spin to accurately fire the round downrange or?
  • No irony police douchebags yet? *checks watch*
  • My timesheet at work is stamped FOUO.

    There are a lot of articles lately that are only IRONIC, AMUSING, etc if you lack even a basic understanding of what's going on.
  • I had a buddy that used to work for the NSA. He told hilarious stories over things that were classified Top Secret and TS/SCI.

    I think my favorite is that it's TS/SCI @ NSA for the POs for toilet paper. That's right -- according to my buddy, they created a Special Compartmented Intelligence classification for the # of toilet paper rolls they purchase. (This was 1994, btw.)

    I asked, "WTF?"

    He told me that he asked his Security Officer about it, and the SO told him that it was a hold over from the Cold War. Someone got the idea that the Rooskies might be able to reverse calculate how many people worked @ NSA based on how much TP they went through, and at that time, the # of people working @ NSA was considered Vital National Security Information.

    Probably BS. Probably like the Dominos/Pentagon thing. Still a funny story.
