Federal Employee And Contractor Background Checks 

Government Contractor Employment Background Checks


Updated 05/2020

Understandably, Federal agencies have strict employment background check screening requirements that all Federal employees and contractors must comply with.

While some require fingerprinting and FBI criminal record checks, all of them should include a check of:

OFAC – Office of Foreign Asset Control

Terrorist Watch list

National criminal records database search

A check of the sex offender registry in all 50 states

Pre-employment drug screening

Social Security verifier information

Previous employment verification

Education verification

OSFI – Canadian Sanctions List- NS,

Australian Reserve Bank Sanctions List- NS

A 10 year social Security Number address history Trace.

We offer an unlimited criminal record background check search of 7 to 10 years of all Federal, State and counties of residence.  (The FBI or NCIC only has these criminal records if they are reported to the FBI database.)

Often  they are not.

Please see our page on FBI criminal record database myths for more detailed information.

Moreover, while our extensive criminal record employment background checks are usually completed in the same day to next day, the FBI results can take weeks to complete.

According to an article in the Washington Post,    August 27, 2017

The federal government is struggling to conduct background checks on people seeking security clearances, creating a backlog that one industry group says encompasses more than 700,000 applicants.

As of March, the process for a top secret security clearance took more than 450 days to conclude, a federal official reported in May, more than a half-year longer than it took in April 2016.

The Federal Office Of Personnel Management website provides access to forms for security clearance background checks: (SF-85: Questionnaire for Non-Sensitive Positions) and security clearances (SF-86: Questionnaire for Non-Sensitive Positions) on the   Office of Personnel Management’s website.

All of our reports are  FCRA compliant.

Our criminal record   “Smart Search Plus®”  includes all searches included in the criminal record smart search, but also includes an unlimited check of Federal criminal records.

It is increasingly important to check these added Federal records as they now make up as much as 10  percent of all criminal records.

And, those charged in the Federal criminal system have been charged with some of the most serious crimes.

A County or State criminal background checks from any county or State of residence based on the last 7 years social security number address history, from counties or states not already included in the multi-state criminal background check.(This averages 1.75 additional county criminal background checks.)

These county or State criminal background checks are ordered for you automatically based on addresses shown in the applicant’s social security number trace.

Criminal records returned on the multi-state criminal are also verified in the jurisdiction of record by ordering up to date county criminal records as required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Our Automated Employment Screening provides an applicant controlled process that allows
FCRA compliant background check forms, including Electronic Chain-Of-custody  forms
and  releases to be completed online by the applicant.

We provide several short   videos    to  easily acquaint you with the system.

This makes the background check process fast and easy.
