Continuous Evaluation - Overview


In his role as the Security Executive Agent (SecEA), the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) established the Continuous Evaluation Program within the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC). Continuous Evaluation (CE), a personnel security investigative process, is a key component of security clearance reform efforts to modernize personnel security practices and increase the timeliness of information reviewed between periodic reinvestigation cycles. The CE Program provides oversight, policy, and guidance to implement CE across the Executive Branch and operates the ODNI CE System (CES). The CES is an information technology (IT) system that conducts automated checks of security-relevant information, a capability that is the cornerstone of security clearance transformation efforts within the Trusted Workforce 2.0 framework and the move toward government-wide Continuous Vetting.
