The Defense Central Index of Investigations DCII is the primary DoD automated data base containing personnel security information. The DCII is delivered quarterly to the Defense Manpower Data Center DMDC, Monterey, California. The DCII was carefully reviewed and edited at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and several problems were revealed. For example, the records were ordered by phonetic name making them difficult to link to other personnel security files, approximately 15 percent of the records lacked social security numbers SSN, and another 15 percent of the records contained redundant information. Software was developed by BDM Services Company at DMDC to edit the DCII file. The improvements included reconfiguring the file so that the records were arranged by SSN. Duplicate SSNs and duplicate investigative data were dropped. This editing reduced the March 1985 DCII from eleven to six tapes, while providing a more accurate and efficient-to-use file.
