Published: 08/25/21 | Updated: 09/23/21

The Defense Counterintelligence Security Agency is the primary investigative service provider 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 including submissions, investigations, adjudications, and continuous vetting.

For questions regarding the status of an individual's security clearance, individuals should contact their security manager or designated security official for assistance.

More information about adjudication status and how to appeal decisions is found on the DCSA website.
