About This Webinar:
A history of financial problems is a common reason to deny or revoke a service member’s security clearance. This webinar will provide an overview of the Continuous Evaluation process (CE) and the Department of Defense (DoD) Consolidated Adjudications Facility’s (CAF) adjudicative process.
This webinar will provide details on how CE contributes to ongoing and real-time review of an individual’s background to determine whether that individual continues to uphold requirements for cleared personnel, ensuring that the DoD has a trusted workforce.
DCSA’s Vetting Risk Operations Center (VROC) is growing as the department and continues to enroll more cleared individuals into Continuous Evaluation (CE). The VROC currently oversees CE across the entire Department of Defense (DoD), as well as personnel security within the National Industrial Security Program. The VROC acts as the central nervous system for the security clearance process, where they leverage automated records checks to assist in the ongoing assessment of an individual’s continued eligibility.
