What if our company already does background investigations (BI)?  Am I exempt from your BI’s?  How does the BI process work in general?

  • If your company does its own BI’s and they meet our requirements your company can provide an attestation letter (please work with your CSM). 
  • If your company requirements do not meet these guidelines, please have an administrator on your account submit a Badge Request ticket detailing in the special notes that the user needs a Background Investigation. The badge request ticket initiates the BI process.
  • Please review our FAQs for the BI process in the ServiceNow knowledge base.

Once the badge request ticket is entered how do I check the status of my request?

  • Once the ticket is entered the requestor and the individual needing the BI will be copied on any notes updated in the ticket.  
  • If you need an update or one has not been recently put in the ticket reach out to your CSM for a status.   

How long does my BI last?  If my badge stops working does that mean my BI is expired?

  • In all locations except VA and WPA, your BI is good for 5 years.  VA and WPA are 3 year BIs.
  • If your badge stops working please open a ticket for the access to be checked.  There could be an issue with the badge if it is before the three-year timeframe is up.
