We have begun to re-enable user access to the e-QIP system. The system has been brought back online less than four weeks after being taken down. We are working closely with agencies to re-enable e-QIP users incrementally in an effort to resume this service in an efficient and orderly way. As part of a phased process, agencies will first be able to re-enable e-QIP users who were already in the system when it was taken offline on June 26, 2015. In the coming days, agencies will be able to begin enabling new users.
During the time the system was offline, OPM worked with cybersecurity experts from our many interagency partners to implement security enhancements. These improvements further enhanced password protections, secured the transmission of data to and from e-QIP, and implemented additional protections against external threats. Experts from across government have tested those enhancements to ensure their effectiveness.
OPM’s federal and contract investigators go through a certified training course after they are hired. When they successfully complete the training course, the federal and contract investigators receive credentials that identify them as investigators working for or on behalf of OPM, respectively.
You may apply for OPM investigator positions on USAJOBS. To become a contract investigator, you need to apply directly with the companies that perform background investigations for OPM: CACI and KeyPoint Government Solutions.
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.
Information concerning the Essentials of Suitability Adjudication Program can be found on the Agency Training pages of OPM.gov.
Each agency to which you apply will be responsible for making the appropriate access, fitness, suitability and/or clearance determination for any position for which you are being considered. Therefore, it will be up to the agency to decide the impact the situation you describe has on the hiring decision.
Individuals can verify the status of an OPM investigator by contacting FIS Security and Safety Team at 888/795-5673 or email@example.com.
