Human Resources and Security Specialists should use this tool to determine the correct investigation level for any covered position within the U.S. Federal Government.
OPM conducts background investigations for the U.S. Government. These investigations are completed by a combination of Federal employees and contract investigators under contract to and with the oversight of OPM. Additionally, a few Federal entities have been delegated authority to complete their own background investigations and some use contract investigators to perform that function. OPM does not "classify" or otherwise approve commercial organizations to complete background investigations.
