Renaming of the DOD CAF
The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) is renaming the Department of Defense Consolidated Adjudications Facility (DOD CAF) to better reflect personnel vetting into the future. DoD CAF is now DCSA Consolidated Adjudication Services (CAS).
The renaming to DCSA CAS does not change any internal or external organizational reporting relationships, missions, resources or support functions. DCSA, through the CAS, will continue to deliver informed and timely adjudicative decisions for the Federal Government to enable operational readiness in keeping with risk management principles.
In 2019, the DOD CAF transferred to DCSA, and was part of the broader re-alignment of personnel vetting responsibilities. DCSA CAS, led by DCSA Assistant Director Marianna Martineau, supports the military services, Department of Defense agencies, cleared industry in the National Industrial Security Program, and certain legislative and judiciary branch entities.
The DCSA CAS executes approximately one million personnel security, suitability, and credentialing actions. DCSA CAS executes 99% of all DOD National Security Eligibility determinations, 92% of federal government-wide National Security Eligibility determinations, and 10% of federal government-wide Civilian Suitability and Credentialing decisions. The DCSA CAS is the largest adjudication facility across government and the only adjudications facility covering all three branches of government.
