    Who decides if I get the job or a security clearance?

    An investigations service provider will conduct your background investigation at the request of the sponsoring Federal agency looking to hire or retain you as an employee, contractor or member of the military. After NBIB provides the completed investigative product, the sponsoring Federal agency will evaluate your case, make the appropriate adjudication or determination and (if required for the position) decide whether to grant you a clearance.
