Clearances go purple?

Transition of the Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO) to the Department of Defense Central Adjudicative Facility (CAF)

Effective Oct. 27, 2012, the Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO) will migrate to the DOD CAF [Central Adjudication Facility]. As a result of this migration a new version of the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) will be deployed. All JPAS drop down menus and adjudicative decisions will reflect "DOD CAF" vice "DISCO".

Industry will continue to submit their e-QIP as they currently do. Personnel Security Investigations for Industry will continue to be adjudicated as before and there should not be any degradation of service.

This action is being taken in response to the May 3, 2012, memorandum signed by the Deputy Secretary of Defense. The memo directed a complete consolidation of the functions, resources, and assets of the Army Central Clearance Facility, Department of the Navy CAF, Air Force CAF, Joint Staff CAF, Washington Headquarters (WHS) CAF, Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office, and the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals into a single organization under the authority, direction and control of the Director of Administration and Management.
