DISS RELEASE 13.3.2 fixes
DCSA is soliciting end user community feedback on DISS features and functionality and is working to continuously improve performance. Release 13.3.2 addresses capability concerns around rare cases of improper investigation resets, inability to access certain reports, and missing report features. DCSA is working to address known issues surrounding citizenship updates, erroneous error messages in the investigation request wizard, and irrelevant from/to fields in JVS reports.

Capability releases are part of DCSA's ongoing effort to ensure DISS meets or exceeds all existing JPAS functionality. DCSA will continue to post updates at www.dcsa.mil regarding the ongoing JPAS-to-DISS transition.
