ODAA Business Management System (OBMS)

The Industrial Security Field Operations, Office of the Designated Approval Authority (ODAA) through the DSS Office of the Chief Information Office (OCIO), will be fielding the ODAA Business Management System (OBMS). OBMS is a secure, web-based system, designed to automate and streamline the Certification and Accreditation (C&A) process for timeliness, accuracy, and efficiency.

A Few OBMS Benefits:




OBMS provides the Contractor Submitter Role the ability to archive Unique Identifiers (UID)s. The archive feature allows the contractor to remove older versions of UIDs and effectively manage OBMS records. In order to archive an UID, the contractor will need to conduct the following actions:

  1. Log into OBMS, Contractor Submitter Module, and Certification and Accreditation Module
  2. Select Edit an Accreditation
  3. Click the Radio Button next to the selected UID
  4. Click Archive Accreditation Package
  5. A pop-up will appear asking "Are you sure you want to archive the selected accreditation?" Click Submit. The UID will be permanently archived and removed from the queue.

If the UID is in a DRAFT status, the contractor will not be able to archive the UID. The contractor will need to contact the DSS Knowledge Center and submit a request to have the DRAFT UIDs archived. The DSS Knowledge Center can be reached at (888) 282-7682 or via email at dss.quantico.dss-hq.mbx.knowledge-center@mail.mil.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact your assigned Information Systems Security Professional (ISSP). If you have specific questions about OBMS, please provide comments and questions to dss.quantico.dss-hq.mbx.odaa@mail.mil.

May 9, 2017 Change in URLs for Information Systems
In an effort to avoid confusion when the Defense Information System for Security goes live later this year, the URLs for the information systems linked from the dropdown menu of the DSS main page were recently updated. If you bookmarked a URL for an information system, please update it accordingly.
