Why do I need a Portal Account to view the Preliminary Program?

The JANNAF Executive Committee has determined that the Preliminary and Final Programs for JANNAF meetings should be published as unclassified-limited, "Distribution authorized to U.S. Government and their contractors …" (U-C), which began with the June 2015 meeting. In order to ensure that only qualified U.S. Citizens are able to view these documents, they will now be posted on a secure website. You must create an account on this website. The process of creating the account includes verification of your employment and citizenship.

Once you have received email notification that your Portal account has been approved and you have set up your account password, go to the Program page of the meeting website. Click on the link to the Preliminary Program (pdf). If the next screen says “Access Denied”, simply enter your JANNAF Secure Portal account login information, click login, and the PDF file will open.


Why do I need a Portal Account to register for the December meeting?

The process of applying for a JANNAF Secure Portal account verifies that you are a U.S. citizen qualified to receive unclassified, limited-distribution information. To qualify, you must be employed by a DoD, DoE, or NASA facility, or with a DoD, DoE, or NASA contractor facility eligible for receipt of militarily-critical technical data. You must meet the same requirements to be able to attend a JANNAF meeting. So obtaining a JANNAF Secure Portal account replaces the need to complete the old Registration Certification Form, which requested the same type of information as the online Portal account form. Once you have a portal account, we only need a little more information from you, which is gathered via the online Registration Questionnaire. Only those who have already obtained a Portal account (verified that they are eligible to attend JANNAF meetings) can access the online Registration Questionnaire.


What information do I need in order to create a JANNAF Secure Portal account?

All Users Will Need:

  • Name, phone, and email of your HR or FSO who will certify citizenship and employment
  • Hints:
    • Don't overlook the required “Org Type”. The correct organization type (DoD, NASA, Industry, etc.) must be accurate to successfully complete the new account process.
    • Account requests must be completed in their entirety. They are not saved and/or available for editing and e-mail addresses cannot be duplicated.

Industry/Academia Will Also Need:

  • DLA (a.k.a. DD 2345) Certification Number
  • Name, phone, and email of your Government Sponsoring Official (GSO), contract number with expiration date


How long will it take for my Portal account to be approved and activated?

The amount of time from start to finish really depends on how quickly each person who needs to complete a portion of the online form does their part. There are ways that you can help move the process along.

  1. After you submit your part of the form, check your inbox for an automated email from portalemail@cpiac.jhu.edu asking you to verify your email address. Be sure to check your junk mail folder, just in case. Once you receive that email, click on the link. You don't need to do anything more at that point.
  2. Your Facility Security Officer or Human Resources Department (whichever contact information you provided in your portion of the form) will automatically receive an email from portalemail@cpiac.jhu.edu requesting that they verify your employment and citizenship. Be sure to contact that individual directly to alert them to look for the email, either in their inbox or junk mail folder. Follow up with them a day or two later to make sure they've submitted their portion of the form.
  3. If you work for Industry/Academia, you should also contact your Government Program Manager (or sponsor) directly to alert them that they'll soon be receiving an email from portalemail@cpiac.jhu.edu requesting that they verify the pertinent contract and expiration date; it could end up in their inbox or junk mail folder. Follow up with them a day or two later to make sure they've submitted their portion of the form.
  4. Once all parties have completed the form, it will automatically be routed to CADRE and it will be reviewed and, barring any problems, approved. You will then receive an email from portalemail@cpiac.jhu.edu letting you know that your account has been established (remember to check your junk mail folder, just in case). Click on the link in that message, create a password, and you can begin using the account.

Meeting Registration

How do I register?

Once you have a JANNAF Secure Portal account, there are just two steps to complete your meeting registration.

  2. Pay the registration fee. You or someone you designate can complete this step; a JANNAF Secure Portal account is not needed. From the Registration Page, click on "Pay Registration Fee" and complete each screen. We strongly recommend reviewing the helpful notes provided at the top of the screen.
