Once a period of debarment from competition for, or appointment to, specified positions has expired, a person is eligible to apply to any vacancy announcement posted following the application procedures outlined for the announcement. The agency to which the person applies will process the application and evaluate the suitability of the applicant, as appropriate.
In cases of covered positions that are subject to investigation as defined in Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 731, the Office of Personnel Management retains jurisdiction to make final determinations and take actions in all suitability cases where there is evidence that there has been a material, intentional false statement, or deception or fraud in examination or appointment or there is a refusal to furnish testimony as required by §5.4 of Chapter 5. Agencies must refer these cases to OPM for suitability determinations and actions under 5 CFR 731, and when an agency wants to take or has taken an action under its own authority (5 CFR part 315, 5 CFR part 359, or 5 CFR part 752), the agency must notify OPM. OPM may, in its discretion, exercise its jurisdiction under this part in any case it deems necessary.
To notify OPM of the action your agency has taken, please contact the OPM Suitability Adjudications office located in Pennsylvania by calling (724) 794-5612.
OPM conducts the background investigations which may be requested by Federal agencies as the basis for a security determination. The adjudication of the investigation and the maintenance of the security clearance are the responsibility of the agency sponsoring the clearance. We encourage you to contact your security office as soon as possible to discuss your situation and ensure you have met their requirements.
Your employing agency is responsible for making this determination. Executive Order 12968, as amended, sets forth the responsibility and requirements for agency heads to determine the need for employees within the agency to have access to classified information, in addition to the eligibility requirements for being granted access and maintaining such access.
