1 Army Investigative Enterprise Solution (AIES) & the Personnel Security Investigation (PSI) Center of Excellence April 2010

2 Agenda Welcome & Introductions AIES Overview & Process
Interim Security Clearance & Policy Deployment Q & A 2

3 AIES Background What is it?
The Army Investigative Enterprise Solution is a holistic, end-to-end service and quality approach to security investigations that allows for: Centralization Quality Control Standardization Significant increase in the speed and success of investigations Significant increase in the quality of investigation submission packages What does it mean to you? Relief of administrative burden tied to completing security packages Faster results, allowing for subjects to be cleared and working faster Dedicated personnel to assist applicants through the process All completed SF8XXX forms are returned to the requesting (servicing agency) Supports the interim clearance process, but does not impede or impinge on Commander’s interim decision or exception appointment authorities

4 Vision AIES Single security enterprise Integrated systems architecture
Validated Requirement Standardize Quality Submit Request Monitor Investigation Status Adjudicate Case Verify and Pay Bill Single security enterprise Integrated systems architecture Leverage existing systems and technology Supports Joint Security & Suitability Reform Team (JSSRT) End-to-End Program Management Structure The potential future Army PSI process may: Consolidate and centralize world-wide Army PSI at one location Use existing Army technology to implement integrated, automated workflow & customer service Improve quality control, allow direct electronic submissions, and leverage OPM upgrades Fold into ongoing Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) and DNI/DoD Tiger Team efforts 4

5 Comparison of Statistics
1600 Offices Army-wide = 1600 Process Variations Army Average: 300+ Days, 27% Errors, 8% Rejects 50-90 days 200 days Request (Army) Initiate Investigate (OPM) Adjudicate 10-15 days 65 days AIES Average: 78 Days, 1% Errors, 0.0% Rejects One Center-of-Excellence = One Standard Repeatable Process Improvement in the front-end of the process, leads to improvement in the rest of the process 5

6 AIES Enablers Digital Fingerprints Partnerships
Reduces time, improves print quality, eliminates ink print requirement (except for some childcare investigations) Contributes to complete security investigation enterprise solution Required for successful compliance with HSPD-12 Partnerships Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Business Transformation Agency (BTA) Joint Suitability and Security Reform Team (JSSRT) Biometrics Task Force (BTF) Single, Shared Army Portal CAC-enabled to further protect personal identifying information AKO-based for ease of access and information security (future state) 6

7 Simple, standardized, efficient, automated
PSI – CoE Work-Flow Supports Subjects, Requesters and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) *Front end = identification of a PSI requirement for a particular individual until OPM schedules that investigation Completes Forms, Attachments, & Fingerprints, as applicable Checks Quality, Submits SF8XXX forms to OPM and provides a copy to requester Requests Investigations (Clearance & Suitability) Investigates Manages Tasks Simple, standardized, efficient, automated 7

8 Roles and Responsibilities
Requester: Provides complete and accurate contact information for subjects Ensures subjects are available for at least one week after submission of the request Arranges for fingerprint capture within 48 hours of PSIP request, as applicable Makes interim security clearance decision for or on behalf of Commander, as applicable Subject: Fills out e-QIP online in a timely manner- 5 calendar days Completes fingerprint capture, as applicable Returns signature pages/releases to the CoE PSI-CoE: Validates need for each request Notifies requester throughout process Provides call center support for both subjects and requesters Provides completed forms to the requester

9 IMPORTANT: The above address is ONLY for those using the AIES process
Fingerprints Use digital fingerprints when possible Exclusive IPAC for electronic fingerprints: DA-EFP Approval to Operate (ATO) and Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) - covers all FBI acceptable machines When only hardcopy fingerprints are possible, send them to: Dept of the Army PSI Center of Excellence B3240/2201 Aberdeen Blvd Aberdeen Proving Ground MD IMPORTANT: The above address is ONLY for those using the AIES process

10 PSI – COE Interim Clearance Process
Collateral Top Secret & Secret Immediately after SF8XXX submission to OPM Reviews & identifies “clean” or “issues requiring attention” Provides completed reviewed SF8XXX and other supporting documents directly to requester Commander’s make interim security clearance or exception appointment decisions TS/SCI Simultaneously provides completed and reviewed SF8XXX to CCF Subject to change pending final legal process review. If it changes, the complete package will be returned to the requestor for determination of derogatory information and issuance of interim (or not)

Effective immediately local records checks are no longer a required element for the submission or request of an initial or periodic background investigation. This applies to all personnel security and suitability investigations, e.g., An initial or periodic reinvestigation, investigations requested to upgrade a security clearance, or other investigations that support suitability for employment or contract. Interim security clearances/exception appointments A local records check is not required for a “new civilian employee” or “applicant” Commanders may conduct a local records check of personnel, base military police, medical, and local/command security records, as applicable Local records checks are restricted to those activities on a military installation, post, camp, or station The conduct of a local records check in support of an interim security clearance/exception appointment will not delay or impede the submission or request of a background investigation Local records checks will be conducted separate from the background investigation submission process. Local records check will be completed in a timely manner.

12 The Deployment of AIES Currently serves 510 discrete units, including 90 of 105 CPACs with a proven capacity of 7,320 investigations per month Transitioned from proof of concept to an operational program being proliferated throughout the Army 4 major blocks: CPAC sites and the security offices that support them (April 2010 targeted completion) Remaining security offices to include remaining installations (September 2010 targeted completion) Accessions community (including those for National Guard and Reserves- October 2010 targeted completion) National Guard and Reserves (April 2011 targeted completion) 12

13 Questions?

14 Planned Expanded Capability
Requester reporting/dashboarding Resource library built into portal Requester convenience items: Save investigation requests in-process for later submission View requests submitted by requester/organization Feedback portal Online interactive training module Metrics reporting 14
