CONNECTION APPROVAL

CONNECTION APPROVAL OFFICE OVERVIEW

The Risk Adjudication and Connection Division Connection Approval Office approves secure interoperable connections to the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN), in support of the warfighter and mission partners, for applications, information systems, and networks authorized to operate on the enterprise infrastructure. 

To get started with your connection, follow the complete instruction on DoD and Non-DoD Mission Partner connections to the DISN detailed in the Connection Process Guide (CPG)

It is important to note that the Risk Adjudication and Connection Division is approving requests to connect to the DISN but does not own the entire process. Customers requiring a new connection to the DISN and its services must use the DISA Direct Order Entry (DDOE) request fulfillment process to initiate circuit activation (see the DDOE website for additional guidance).
