Did you know that the law entitles you to a copy of your own federal background investigation?
Or that the information the government keeps on you in its “DISS” (formerly “JPAS”) and Scattered Castles databases is available for review?
Simply by sending a letter you will be provided with an inside look at your case files: who was interviewed – and what they said about you; what records were searched – and what they showed; and, other items like your investigative credit report.
Department of Defense employees and contractors can also request a copy of their Defense Information System for Security (DISS, formerly called “JPAS”) file – the central place where DOD keeps security clearance records, incident reports filed against clearance holders between background investigations, and any other derogatory information that could affect a clearance. Intelligence Agency employees and contractors can obtain this same information through the “Scattered Castles” database.
You can research how to request this information on your own, but that can require parsing dry government publications or navigating cumbersome government websites. Fortunately, we’ve done all the work for you. Simply select the relevant option(s) below and receive an instant email containing pre-drafted information request letter(s) with easy-to-follow submission instructions. To protect your privacy, we collect no personal information beyond that which is necessary to complete your PayPal transaction. Customers enter their own information on the request letter(s) just prior to submitting them directly to the pertinent government agencies.
