Personnel Security Adjudication Center Signature Graphic


The Personnel Security Adjudication Center (PSAC) operates as one of the business segments of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Franchise Fund, which is comprised of seven self-supporting lines of business (Enterprise Centers) and an administrative office (Franchise Fund Oversight Office). Under the authority of the Government Management Reform Act of 1994 and Public Law 109-114, VA Franchise Fund Enterprise Centers (ECs) are authorized to sell common administrative support services to the VA and other Government Agencies on a fee-for-service basis and operate entirely on revenues earned from customers. The collections from customers for products or services provided constitute the PSAC’s funding source. ECs receive no federally appropriated funding. Activities conducted by the ECs are approved and reviewed by the Revolving Fund Governance Board.
