On May 15, 2020, a Data Quality Initiative (DQI) was done in the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) to address subjects with Overdue Periodic Reinvestigations (PR). We have learned that while the DQI successfully identified the overdue PR population, some Facility Security Officers (FSOs) and Security Management Officers (SMOs) with an owning/servicing relationship also received the DQI message on subjects with open investigations, recently closed investigations or subjects that were enrolled into CE because of a deferred investigation. These populations (subjects without overdue PRs)received the DQI message in error. We assure that no action will be taken on these subjects as a result of the 15 May DQI.
As a reminder, clearances do not expire. If you encounter any issues with your Government Customers, please refer them to the signed memorandum, dated December 7, 2016, from the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence reminding DoD Components that personnel security clearances do not expire.

While we work to correct the Overdue PR DQI error messages, we ask that industry submits all overdue PRs that have not been previously submitted to DCSA. Thank you for your patience and assistance.
