COVID 19 - maximum flexibility in employing alternative investigative methods

To facilitate continued vetting and onboarding of mission critical personnel in rare and exigent circumstances such as this period where COVID-19 measures are required, federal vetting policy issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) in their respective roles as the Security Executive Agent and the Suitability/Credentialing Executive Agent, permits maximum flexibility in employing alternative investigative and adjudicative methods. Such methods include virtual interviews and remote secure access to records. In line with these adjustments, DCSA is working hard to insure that the investigations program will remain as fully productive as possible during this challenging period. Questions related to an Agent's/Investigator's identity or status should be directed to DCSA Physical Security: 1-888-795-5673, or RMFSIMSST@nbib.gov
