Each federal agency or department, including OPM, is responsible for making the appropriate access, fitness, suitability and/or clearance determination for any position in which an individual applies and is being considered. A criminal record does not necessarily exclude an individual from consideration for Federal employment. However, it will be up to the hiring agency to decide the impact an individual’s criminal record has on the hiring decision.
If asked on any Federal application or background investigation documents, individuals are required to report the applicable information related to their criminal records.
