Who would have thought that I would be watching a YouTube video about how to NOT look like a troll during Zoom Meetings? Not me, but here we are! (By the way, natural light is the way to go for streaming video meetings. Since my office has no windows – troll, it is!)
The last several weeks have made us ALL have to pivot a bit! Kudos to us for be- ing able to hang in there and read all those emails from our CISAs and CDSE surveys that have been coming into our in-boxes!
As I type today, there is no real forecast for the resuming of “normal operations” so here are the things we have found that work best.
e-QIP Reset Inquiries Change
Effective April 20, 2020, all Industry e-QIP resets will be handled by the DCSA Applicant Knowledge Center. Please call 724-738-5090 or email CSAppli- cantSupport@nbib.gov for assistance. For ALL other Personnel Security Clearance Inquiries, please email VROC at email@example.com or submit a customer service request via DISS. Be sure to put your CAGE in the request if you email it.

If your subject’s investigation is already closed but not adjudicated, you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
JPAS or DISS Issues:
What do I do about fingerprints, proof of identity, or CAC Badges?
Ask this guy for the official guidance documents for all of that!

More about DISS:
Beginning May 4, 2020, DMDC will con- duct automated provisioning of the DISS JVS accounts for the Industry SMOs. This is one of the major steps in fully deploying DISS within the DoD as the JPAS replacement. Eligible recipients will receive two email notifications: (1) user provisioning instructions; (2) credentials to access the DISS JVS application. For those who wish to manually request a DISS account, please follow the PSSAR Industry instructions on the DMDC website or contact the Industry Provisioning Team at DCSA.email@example.com.
What Should Industry be Using DISS for Currently?
- SF-312 Submission
- Customer Service Request (the RRU replacement) Submission
- Verifying your hierarchy and subject list are accurate before the Phase
When Should I Get a DISS Account?
- Now! You must send the entire PSSAR packet to the following email ad- dress: firstname.lastname@example.org.
