Mission Statement
The Department of Defense (DoD) Consolidated Adjudications Facility (CAF) is the sole authority to determine the security clearance eligibility, CAC credentialing, and suitability of non-Intelligence Agency DoD personnel occupying sensitive positions and/or requiring access to classified material including Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI). These determinations involve all applicants actively affiliated with the Department of Defense, to include Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve, civilian; and contractor personnel under the National Industrial Security Program.  In addition to DoD employees, the White House and staff of the United States Senate and House of Representatives, are adjudicated when requested by Congress. The DoD CAF is responsible to ensure that, based on all available information, the individual’s loyalty, reliability and trustworthiness are such that entrusting an individual with classified information or assigning them to sensitive duties is clearly consistent with the interests of national security. This position will be assigned to the Army Division of the DoD CAF.
