March 2021

REMINDER: The Defense Information System for Security (DISS) is replacing the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) on April 1, 2021. In advance of this transition, JPAS will enter into a READ-ONLY MODE at 12:01 a.m. March 15, 2021, and will be RETIRED at midnight, March 31, 2021.

SUNDAY, MARCH 14 IS THE LAST DAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO INITIATE AN INVESTIGATION REQUEST THROUGH JPAS. Conclude your remaining JPAS clearance activities now.

CAUTION: Although DCSA is making every effort to process all investigation requests submitted through JPAS before it is retired on March 31, as of April 1, the Vetting Risk Operations Center (VROC) will no longer have access to JPAS. Any questions on investigation requests submitted in JPAS must be raised by March 30. Any requests that could not be processed before April 1 due to an excessively high volume of last-minute submissions will need to be resubmitted through DISS (*if that situation occurs*).

Please help minimize this contingency by taking your final actions in JPAS as soon as possible or transitioning to DISS now for new investigation requests.

DISS account holders should now be using DISS to initiate all new investigation requests. Guidance and job aids for submitting investigation requests in DISS are posted on the DCSA.mil website.
