How e-Adjudication for Background Investigations Works

Originally published here: https://www.clearancejobsblog.com/how-e-adjudication-for-background-investigations-works/

The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) has the ability to provide e-Adjudication shared services to other agencies for Tier 1, Tier 3 and Tier 3R investigations. The e-Adjudication business rules enable a uniform and consistent mechanism that supports reciprocity of adjudications. The use of e-Adjudication greatly shortens case processing times for the cleanest cases, facilitates the initial review of complex cases by adjudicators, reduces adjudicator workload, increases adjudication consistency, and facilitates the assignment of complex cases to adjudicators with relevant expertise. The current e-Adjudication capability derived from a previous initiative called the Adjudication Decision Support (ADS) and e-Adjudication rolled out in 2009 by the Office of Personnel Management.

“Supports…” but may not necessarily guarantee. Oh well maybe it will make it harder for agencies to say they won’t accept existing clearances.
