3) By Law, organizations must have an implementation plan and documentation. Though DCIPS is not always subject to but consistent with title 5, approval of these incentives must be in accordance with OSD's guidance (24 May 05) and Army’s guidance (AG1 Memo - 08 Jun 05).

C. . HQDA DCS, G-1 (Civilian Human Resources Agency), HQDA DCS, G-2 (DAMI-CDS), HQDA DCS, G-3 (DAMO-SSD), and HQDA CIO/G-6 have mandate a 100% top down review of civilian position sensitivity within the Department of Army (DA).
1) All Army Commands, Army Service Component Commands, Direct Reporting Units, and other Army activities and/or agencies are conducting a 100% review of civilian positions within their cognizance. Results will be reported to this HQDA, G-2 NLT 31 DEC 06.
2) An immediate review of the Army personnel security programs relative to position sensitivity is required to validate investigative requirements for civilian positions. This review will increase efficiency in the DA personnel security program and related budget; it will also ensure the data in Modern Defense Civilian Personnel Data System provides the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) accurate information for position sensitivity.
3) The appointment of each civilian employee in the Army is subject to a personnel
security investigation for either access to classified information, encumbering sensitive
positions or suitability for federal employment. The DoD Directive 5200.2R, Personnel
Security Program, AR 380-67, Army Personnel Security Program, and OPM data
standards require the proper application and coding of position sensitivity for each
civilian position within the Army. The purpose of coding position designation is to
ensure the incumbent undergoes the appropriate type of investigation to protect
national security interests.
4) This is the first formal review; subsequent reviews will be conducted at a minimum biennially for currency. Each civilian position within DA shall be categorized, with respect to position sensitivity, as either special-sensitive, critical-sensitive,
non-critical sensitive, or non-sensitive. The specific duties of each position criteria to be applied to validate and/or designate position sensitivity are defined with appropriate coding.
5) If the review results in a change in position sensitivity affecting an individual’s recorded access, access should be administratively corrected and an appropriate investigation and submitted accordingly.
