Background investigations are required for all contractor/subcontractor personnel who have:

  1. Access to sensitive government information
  2. Access to Federal information systems (including those hosted at contractor facilities)
  3. Regular or prolonged physical access to Federally-controlled facilities.

The NIH Office of Research Services, Division of Personnel Security and Access Control (ORS/DPSAC) manages the background investigation process. Their website at provides more information on this subject and discusses the process that is involved. Applicants are required to complete and submit a number of forms electronically through an Office of Personnel Management online system called e-QIP(link is external).
