Joint Personnel Adjudication System

The Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) is a DoD system that uses NIPRNET to connect all DoD security personnel around the world with their Central Adjudication Facility (CAF). The JPAS web site runs on a secured port with secured socket layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption.

JPAS System Requirements


The Joint Adjudication Management System (JAMS) provides the CAFs a single, integrated information system to assist the adjudication process through "virtual consolidation" and vastly improve dissemination of timely and accurate personnel security information to the warfighters and planners. It is a system designed for the adjudicative community by adjudicators.

The Joint Clearance and Access Verification System (JCAVS) provides DoD security personnel the ability to instantaneously update other JCAVS users with pertinent personnel security clearance and access information in order to ensure the reciprocal acceptance of clearances throughout DoD. It is a system designed for security managers and security officers as representatives of that community.
