Personnel Vetting

Today, DCSA’s end-to end personnel vetting operations includes the Federal background investigations program, adjudications for the Department of Defense (DoD), continuous evaluation/continuous vetting for DoD, and insider threat analysis for DoD.

DCSA is the primary investigative service provider (ISP) for the Federal Government, conducting 95% of all background investigations for over 100 agencies. DCSA also provides an end-to-end vetting service for DoD services and components (Intelligence Community components excluded) – including submissions, investigations, adjudications, and continuous vetting. In this way, the DCSA services both the whole of Government and the DoD. An overview of the background investigations process is shown below:
