The report does not say whether this person -- whose duties included secure database management and budget planning -- still draws a government paycheck at the ODNI.

According to the Defense Manpower Data Center's Manual on JPAS Account Management, one of the most common JPAS user violations is "querying the JPAS application for your own record." This policy is explicitly forbidden in the manuals for JPAS.
