Understanding the threat to U.S. technologies
Nov. 3, 2022 - The foreign intelligence threat to the nation's defense industrial base has never been more capable, sophisticated, or complex. Adversaries use illicit methods to acquire classified and sensitive information and technologies, which can determine the outcome of future conflicts. Mitigating these threats starts with understanding them. Read the latest edition of "The Targeting U.S. Technologies: A Report of Threats to Cleared Industry" to learn more about the threats facing the cleared defense industrial base. You'll find the 2022 edition here: https://www.dcsa.mil/Portals/91/Documents/CI/2022_CI_Targeting_US_Technologies.pdf. Please click the title for more information.

What is NCCS?

The National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Contracts Classification System (NCCS) is the enterprise federal information system supporting Department of Defense, other Federal Agencies under NISP agreement, and cleared Industry. NCCS is the one-stop-shop for processing and distribution of contract security classification specifications for contracts requiring access to classified information. NCCS is designed to deliver a centralized repository for the collection of classified contract security requirements and supporting data while automating the DD Form 254 (DoD Contract Security Classification Specification) processes and workflows across the enterprise.

DCSA assumed operational control and development responsibility for NCCS from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) on October 1, 2021. NCCS was soft launched on June 6, 2022.

You'll find more information about NCCS at https://www.dcsa.mil/is/nccs. Do you have any questions? Please email us at dcsa.quantico.hq.mbx.nccs@mail.mil

The National Background Investigation Services (NBIS) is the federal government's one-stop-shop IT system for end-to-end personnel vetting - from initiation and application to background investigation, adjudication, and continuous vetting. NBIS is one consolidated system designed to deliver robust data protection, enhance customer experience, and better integrate data across the enterprise.

Still in development, DCSA assumed operational control and responsibility for NBIS from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) on October 1, 2020. NBIS will build upon and replace a suite of legacy background investigation IT systems, decommissioning them in stages through 2023. For more information, click on the NBIS  page.
