Ready, Set, DISS! video

 The Defense Information System for Security (DISS) is replacing the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS). JPAS will transition to a read-only mode on March 15, 2021, and will be retired on March 31, 2021. All updates to eligibility, access, and visit data must be completed in DISS prior to March 15. In anticipation of this move, DCSA produced a short animated video that addresses the key steps industry must take  to ensure a smooth transition. DCSA has also produced a longer video that provides more detailed step by step instructions. For the best viewing, please launch the video using Chrome, Edge or Firefox.

JPAS now Read Only | Manage All Personnel Security Actions in DISS
March 15, 2021 - Effective midnight on March 14, the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) is now in read only mode. Users should now be using DISS to initiate investigation requests, submit incident reports, and manage all matters pertaining to eligibility and access, security management, and visit authorizations. Security managers will have approximately two weeks to reconcile data using JPAS as a reference tool, after which the system is projected to officially sunset on Wednesday, March 31 at midnight. DCSA asks that supported agencies and industry work closely with the Vetting Risk Operations Center (VROC) to close out all previously initiated JPAS investigation requests by March 30.
