The Defense Department has started to gather public input on a proposed common information system designed to identify, request and record actions related to personnel security.
DoD said in a June 15 notice on Federal Register that the Defense Information System for Security will work to help the department determine an individual’s eligibility to access classified data, check employment suitability and perform personal identity verification for accessing government systems and facilities.
According to the department, DISS is composed of the Joint Verification System and Case Adjudication Tracking System.
The JVS application is designed to help Pentagon’s security managers and facility security officials to record access determinations and verify eligibility, while CATS works to assist DoD’s adjudicative community in the documentation of eligibility determinations.
DISS will also cover various records, including personal information, DoD affiliation types, employment status, eligibility status for security clearances, foreign travel and contacts, security-associated incident reports, debriefing as well as records of adjudication and investigations conducted by federal investigative agencies.
Comments to the proposed system of records are due July 15, according to the notice.
