Continuous Evaluation (CE) is defined in Executive Order (E.O.) 13488, as amended by E.O. 13764, "means a vetting process to review the background of an individual who has been determined to be eligible for access to classified information or to hold a sensitive position at any time during the period of eligibility. CE leverages a set of automated record checks and business rules to assist in the on-going assessment of an individual's continued eligibility. CE is intended to complement continuous vetting efforts."  "'Vetting' is the process by which covered individuals undergo investigation, evaluation, and adjudication of whether they are, and remain over time, suitable or fit for Federal employment, eligible to occupy a sensitive position, eligible for access to classified information, eligible to serve as a nonappropriated fund employee or a contractor, eligible to serve in the military, or authorized to be issued a Federal credential. Vetting includes all steps in the end-to-end process, including determining need (appropriate position designation), validating need (existence of a current investigation or adjudication), collecting background information via standard forms, investigative activity, adjudication, providing administrative due process or other procedural rights, and ongoing assessments to ensure that individuals continue to meet the applicable standards for the position for which they were favorably adjudicated." “'Continuous vetting' means reviewing the background of a covered individual at any time to determine whether that individual continues to meet applicable requirements."

GENERAL INFORMATION:

 

§  DoD subjects may receive notification from commercial data vendors that the DoD has pulled information

 

§  A subject may receive notification from a credit bureau regarding a credit check that DoD conducted in support of CE.  This check does NOT impact your credit score or history

 

§  A security officer (SO)/facility security officer (FSO) may be notified that adverse information has been identified on a subject.  The SO/FSO needs to make a  determination on whether the subject needs to continue to access classified information AND the SO/FSO needs to follow Defense Security Service (DSS)/Command direction regarding reporting of adverse information in system of records such as JPAS

 

§  A SO/FSO MAY NOT distribute documentation retrieved from a DoD system (e.g., JPAS, DISS (JVS/CATS)) to the subject or other entity without written consent from DMDC.  For example, a SO/FSO may not print and give a CE Alert Report to the subject.  If a SO/FSO does distribute a CE Alert Report to the subject without written consent from DMDC, a SO/FSO is in violation of DoD Regulations and account management policy for the system

 

§  If a SO/FSO has questions regarding a CE Alert Report, the SO/FSO may call the DMDC Contact Center.  The DMDC Call Center does not have access to the system and is unable to retrieve or see any documentation associated with CE but can answer general questions
