government. If you move or copy sensitive information to your facilities or equipment, then you must store it separately from all non federal government information. You’ll need to return, erase, or destroy all sensitive information at the end of the contract or sooner, if at the Contracting Officer. Background Investigations You must undergo a background investigation if you: work on on-site and have unescorted access to government offices or facilities; have access to government networks/systems; or work on contracts and other awards for services with a value greater than $100,000, or on any contract or award at the discretion of the federal government. The extent of the background investigation conducted is in correlation to the risk level assigned. Prior to getting a government identification/access badge and commencing work under the contract, you are required to undergo both a fingerprint and a credit check. In addition, you may be subject to a background investigation, based on the risk level assigned the contract. If any member of your team has a background investigation with adverse finding, he or she can be excluded from working on the contract at the discretion of the Contracting Officer. Risk Level Designation for the Contract Every federal government position, including those of contractors, must be designated with a sensitivity level. As a contractor, you must meet personnel security/suitability standards commensurate with your position’s sensitivity level, and you must be subject to personnel investigation requirements. There is usually a reinvestigation requirement for individuals in high risk positions, and those who have security clearances if they continue to have a need for access to classified information. In addition, if the risk level of the contract mandates background investigations by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), you must provide the Oversight Manager with the completed paperwork for all contractor and subcontractor personnel. This paperwork will allow OPM to begin its background investigation. Risk levels (High Risk, Moderate Risk, and Low Risk) are established through an analysis of the duties and responsibilities of the positions, and their impact on agency mission. Each risk level requires a Minimum Investigative Requirement as recommended by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM): Low Risk – National Agency Check with Inquiries (NACI) Moderate Risk – Minimum Background Investigation (MBI)/Limited Background Investigation (LBI) High Risk – Background Investigation (BI) Only personnel designated High Risk are subject to a Periodic Reinvestigation (PRI) which happens no later than five years after placement, and at least once every succeeding five years. If there is a change in position risk or sensitivity level, then you must meet the investigative requirements of the risk designation of the new position.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
