Closure of the Evaluation of DIA's Personnel Security Program Project

We issued the evaluation report on DIA's Personnel Security Program on November 6, 2018. We identified opportunities to enhance the Agency’s program and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of determinations on eligibility for access to sensitive compartmented information as well as other controlled access program information. Accordingly, we addressed four recommendations to the following offices:

•Directorate for Mission Services
•Directorate for Operations
•Office of the Chief Financial Officer

The offices developed and implemented corrective action plans to remediate the identified risks. We verified that the implemented corrective actions met the intent of the four recommendations, which have all been closed. DIA’s continued emphasis on standardizing training, clarifying guidance, defining roles and responsibilities, and incorporating quality controls will continue to improve the program’s effectiveness. Closing these recommendations is a positive step and represents progress in addressing two of DIA’s Top Management Challenges – Leadership Controls and Oversight, as well as Information Security Governance.
