Department of Defense


The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

Does access to the DCPDS website require a CAC?

If so, do you have the necessary software installed on your home computer?

At a minimum, card reader software. I suggest you contact your IT dept for what version to use.

I have a GOV issued tablet I use at work and take home for telework but can't access that site from home on the GOV tablet either, just at work. There may be more than just a certificate issue or possibly the website won't work when hooked up to the internet on wifi.

Even with a CAC reader and the right software, you may need to be connected to the VPN in order to access some government websites. Your IT department will need to configure that for you.

Thanks everyone for the reply it is no longer accessible from home only at work according to dcpds csr. I never tried an ethernet cable yet, would have to buy one. I no longer need access to my account those.

Have a nice weekend all :)
