My Background Investigation

Working for or on behalf of the United States Federal Government begins with a multi-step on-boarding process which will include a background investigation. The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA), Federal Vetting Center (FVC), is mandated to complete that background investigation if you are working for or on behalf of the Executive Branch of the United States, per Executive Order 13467, as amended. DCSA also completes some background investigations for other branches of the government when it is the most efficient use of Government resources and in the best interest of National Security.

If your current employer, or agency that is looking to hire you, is requesting the initial, reinvestigation, or continuous vetting investigation for you and you should talk with them about this process if you have any questions or concerns, we hope you will find some useful resources in this section of the DCSA website
