    That's how my BI's were done. I had 2 BI's done while I was an applicant/new hire: 1 done by my agency (1811) for suitability for a sworn LEO position and a separate 1 done by OPM for my security clearance (SSBI for TS clearance).

    Do those afore mentioned agencies require a SF-86? If so, then that respective agency vets the information contained on it???

    Should have been more specific - I'm applying for Law Enforcement 'type' positions 1811-1801-0083

    really depends. Some agencies use OPM, others don't

  • Parallel Background Investigation/Security Clearance

    Did some searching through previous posts but couldn't find an answer to this question...

    When you are processing for a federal position that requires a security clearance (SF-86) - does the agency conduct its own background investigation or just rely on the entity [OPM?] tasked with providing the security clearance?

    I guess logically it wouldn't make much sense to run two parallel investigations, but I suppose certain agencies could have different hiring standards/criteria etc...

    If anyone can speak to this I'd appreciate your insight - thanks.
