DOD investigation system gets an upgrade

The Defense Security Service will deploy an upgraded version of an automated system that keeps track of investigation records and security clearance requests.

The new version of the Defense Clearance and Investigations Index system, which will be deployed on March 15, will offer users several enhancements, including:

  • revised clearance codes

  • elimination of blank pages between file demands

  • more online help functions

  • elimination of batch maintenance error lists

  • The WebForms format of the upgraded DCII system will let users add, delete and update files. The system will incorporate Dynamic HTML to display all replies from a query regardless of the number of responses.

    The full list of enhancements as well as a link to the system requirements and software will be posted at on Monday.

    The Defense Security Service, formerly known as the Defense Investigative Service, conducts personnel security investigations, provides industrial security products and services, and offers security training to military and civilian agencies.
