DISS Information System for Security


DISS serves as the enterprise-wide solution for personnel security, suitability, and credentialing management for DoD military, civilian, and contractors. DISS replaced the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) as the System of Record on March 31, 2021. An innovative, web-based application, the platform provides secure communications between adjudicators, security officers, and components, allowing users to request, record, document, and identify personnel security actions. DISS will be an integral step toward the National Background Investigation Services (NBIS) platform currently in development and full implementation of the government-wide policy to overhaul the personnel vetting process known as Trusted Workforce 2.0.

A fix is part of the code change in 13.8.1 which has a tentative deployment date of 12/16.

DISS Reports - DISS reporting data is through 30 November 2021. The DISS Support team knows about this issue and is working on correcting it.

The Visit functionality is not displaying multiple pages of visits. This defect will be fixed in DISS 13.8 which is scheduled for CT on 4 November and Production deployment on 18 November. As a work around, users are advised to retrieve the record of visits by downloading the Creating or Hosting Visit Reports to view the information. In addition, if the name of the visit is known, the user can search for the visit by entering the name from the SMO Visits page, which also retrieves the visit. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Please be advised that DISS relies on the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) to provide the DoD Electronic Interchange Personal Identifier (EDIPI) as the issuer of this unique identifier. If the EDIPI is blank or believed to be in error, DISS relies on recurring data updates from DMDC to correct. The DISS team will not make changes to this data element. Updates are made on a monthly basis. Accordingly, you may need to monitor the subject records or consult with the DMDC Support Center at 1.800.477.8227 to address any suspected issues with the DoD EDIPI.
