PSI requirements for Industry data collection through NISS
The Defense Security Service (DSS) is responsible for projecting Personnel
Security Investigations (PSI) requirements each year. The data collection
for PSI projection requirements will be conducted March 11 through April 5,
2019, through the National Industrial Security System (NISS) Submission
Site. Annual projections acquired from Industry through this collection are
the key component in DoD program planning and budgeting for NISP security
In preparation for this upcoming data collection, our Industry partners are
highly encouraged to register for their NISS accounts before March 11, in
order to participate in the survey. Registration instructions are found on
the NISS website under the Registration section
We look forward to your participation. If you have any questions, please
If you have any problems with the system usage,
please contact the Knowledge Center at: 888-282-7682, options 1 and then 2.
The following user roles will be available for External users. An external user can request multiple roles, if required for their job duties.
NISS is DSS’ future information system architecture and will replace Industrial Security Facilities Database (ISFD) and Electronic Facilities Clearance System (e-FCL) capabilities to develop an on-demand, data-driven environment with automated workflows accessible to Industry and Government partners.
NISS is being developed and released in increments, allowing users to experience benefits quickly. The initial increment of NISS will replace and expand upon capabilities of two legacy systems, ISFD and e-FCL, and automate the Initial Facility Clearance process. This increment will also provide expanded access and transparency to security professionals’ facility information. Increment 1 will be followed by additional enhancements to the system’s functionality and integration, ultimately automating many core DSS and Industry security functions.
NISS solution has been developed in-line with Deputy Chief Management Officer (DCMO) requirements to maximize value while minimizing costs. DSS conducted Business Process Reengineering (BPR) of 22 core DSS functions to create streamlined and efficient workflows. The BPR efforts engaged over 300 DSS, Industry, and Government stakeholders to generate true system requirements tied to optimized business processes.
NISS is a top DSS priority and will modernize the National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Information Environment and provide the USG and Industry stakeholders with a data-driven, collaborative, integrated capability to assess and mitigate risk.
