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.
The newest version of CVS went live on March 22, 2010. The name of the system was changed from 'Clearance Verification System' to 'Central Verification System' to reflect the system's expanded role in promoting reciprocity throughout the Federal Government. In the past, only security clearance information was recorded in CVS. New fields were added to CVS to collect information on suitability, fitness, and access determinations. To aid the collection of this data, the INV Form 79A, Report of Agency Adjudicative Action on OPM Investigations was updated to request information on adjudicative actions that will be added to CVS.
For additional information, agencies can access the new CVS User's Manual posted in the Library section of the OPMIS Secure Portal, or contact OPM-FIS Agency Liaison Group.
