The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) conducts an annual data collection of all U.S. active cleared defense industry facilities for projected personnel security investigation (PSI) requirements for clearances as part of the Department of Defense (DoD) planning and budgeting process. The data collection of National Industrial Security Program (NISP) PSI projections has now been extended through April 12, 2024 and can be accessed through the DCSA National Industrial Security System (NISS).

If you have already submitted your PSI projections, you may confirm the submission status by logging into NISS as the FSO/AFSO/Other Security Staff role. From the NISS Dashboard, hover over the light blue More tab, click PSI Survey, on the right bar click "PSI Submission Status." This is where you can view the status of your survey. The status will be either Submitted or Draft.

To submit your projections, please log into the NISS Application. A PSI Job Aid is available on the NISS Dashboard (after you have logged in) to assist in completing the survey.
