Good morning Mr. Thomas,

This e-mail is in response to your letter dated October 17, 2022, to the
Defense Manpower Data Center, seeking the status of your October 24, 2020
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to DMDC. Your follow-up inquiry
was forwarded to our office for assistance and direct reply to you. A search
of our records revealed that we have no records of ever receiving your
October 24, 2020 request. Regrettably, we are unable to process your request
with the information provided in your follow-up inquiry. For your
convenience, I have included our request for records form, should you wish to
submit a new request. You may also visit our website at:
https://www.dcsa.mil/contact/foia/foip/, for further assistance.

Also, please be advised that the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS)
has retired, effective March 31, 2021. The Defense Information System for
Security (DISS) has replaced JPAS as the system of record for security
clearance information.
