Industry DISS Automated Provisioning Initiative


Beginning May 4 - May 27, 2020, the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) will conduct automated provisioning of the Defense Information System for Security (DISS), Joint Verification System (JVS) accounts for the Industry Security Management Offices. This is one of the major steps in fully deploying DISS within the Department of Defense, as the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) replacement. Eligible recipients will receive two email notifications: (1) user provisioning instructions; and (2) credentials to access the DISS JVS application. For those who wish to manually request a DISS account, please follow the PSSAR Industry instructions on the DMDC website or contact the Industry Provisioning Team at DCSA.dcsa-northern.dcsa-dvd.mbx.provisioning@mail.mil.

2020 PSI Data Collection to Industry
May 8, 2020 - DCSA just completed the 2020 Personnel Security Investigation (PSI) Data Collection to Industry, and would like to thank our industry partners for their participation. In spite of many facility closures due to the COVID- 19 pandemic, over 8,000 unique CAGE codes still found a way to respond to the 2020 PSI Data Collection using National Industrial Security System. The submission rates for the 2020 PSI Data collection increased 25% over last year, with almost 2,000 additional CAGEs responding. Approximately 65% of all CAGEs were included in the 2020 PSI Data Collection up from a 52% response rate last year. Thank you again for your participation, as this survey is a key component in projecting PSI requirements for the DCSA Industry PSI program.
