This report documents the validation of business rules for the Office of Personnel Managements Tier 3 T3, Tier 3 Reinvestigation T3R, and Tier 1 T1 investigation products. The Defense Personnel and Security Research Center collaborated with an interagency working group of personnel security and suitability experts on business rule development for T3 and T3R. The results of rule development and validation provided useful evidence that the proposed T3T3R rules, while very conservative, could safely electronically adjudicate clean cases. The Security and Suitability Executive Agents approved T3T3R business rules in September 2016 and DoDs Consolidated Adjudications Facility subsequently implemented them. Following development of T3 rules, the working group requested that the Defense Personnel and Security Research Center assist in developing rules for T1 electronic adjudication eAdjudication. The results of validation indicated that the T1 eAdjudication business rules could successfully eAdjudicate both Suitability and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 case types. The executive agents approved the business rules in March 2017.
