Baseline Suitability Analysis
DEFENSE PERSONNEL SECURITY RESEARCH CENTER MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The hiring process for federal civilian employment includes steps to adjudicate applicant background information against standards of character and conduct to identify suitable personnel. The Department of Defense DoD largely delegated suitability adjudication to its components and the components implemented unique suitability programs with minimal central oversight. This study gathered information about the DoD component suitability programs and generated a DoD-wide suitability process flow that summarized processes across DoD components, identified important considerations including agency-unique requirements for consolidating suitability adjudication at the DoD Central Adjudication Facility CAF, and found additional research needs.
