Special Agreement Control (SAC), which is a limited review (or series of checks) performed only through a special agreement between OPM and an agency. The SAC offers an alternative procedure that allows the IS to obtain searches specifically tailored to their specific needs and includes: security agency checks, FBI national criminal background checks, and law enforcement checks. SI uses the ISC for all pre-appointment reviews. The background investigation requested for employees assigned to moderate-, low-risk and non-sensitive positions is a National Agency with Written Enquiries (NACI) check. NACI is delivered by OPM. This investigation has a five-year scope that includes FBI fingerprint verification, name verification and investigation records, opmori index of security and suitability investigations, national credit bureaus and corresponding military records, written requests to law enforcement, former employers and supervisors, personal references, and schools. A comprehensive background investigation (IFE) is required for employees assigned to high-risk positions. This survey is 7 years in scope and includes reviews of national authorities as described in NACI, a personal interview, employment, self-employment and unemployment insurance, a review of education, residences, former employers and law enforcement agencies. 1 The field requirements for the ATN field are: filled with more than 3 characters; truncated by 30 characters; and must not contain dots or “special characters”.
Once the completed investigation is received by PSIO, it is assigned to a Personnel Security Specialist for assessment. The specialist evaluates the information and, if necessary, conducts additional examinations or interviews. It is recommended to grant or refuse a favourable aptitude assessment. PsI shall inform the Coordination Point of its recommendation. The Coordination Unit reviews and cooperates with IHSPR to make a final decision. You will need to attach your full name, social security number, date and place of birth, and sign the application. .
