The Field Investigator (FI) directly supports national security and suitability investigations, focusing on performing background investigations on behalf of government clients. Investigators conduct interviews, perform research, retrieve records, and prepare reports of investigations in compliance with federal standards, all laws, and other required federal agency regulations. Investigators type comprehensive reports summarizing facts obtained from these field source interviews and record information and submit these reports for quality review and completeness. Field Investigators engage in dialogue on a regular basis with managers and representatives at contractor facilities, various U.S. Government organizations, and law enforcement agencies, to develop and maintain effective and cooperative working relationships. Casework is performed throughout the FI’s geographic area of responsibility with travel to various places of employment, residence, and education, as well as law enforcement agencies, government facilities, and medical/mental health providers. Travel to other geographic locations (by car, plane, or other methods) may also be required as needed.
To qualify as an Experienced Field Investigator, you must have conducted background investigations on behalf of a federal agency for a minimum of one (1) year within the past five (5) years. Those who have successfully completed a background investigators training course and are trained in compliance with the National Training Standards are preferred.
